Automation has been a major part of Ableton’s evolution over the years, but there have been few, if any, examples of how it has been applied successfully in the studio. This article explores the concepts and techniques for integrating automation into Ableton Live. Learn how to add motion, gestures, and other effects to the track, as well as the options for customizing the track and creating your own customizations.
Automatic track creation is a major part of how Ableton Live was designed. The goal of the track was to be a fully customized, easy-to-use, and customizable track with everything you could potentially need to create a cool-sounding track of your own. The ability to add motion, gestures, or similar effects to your Ableton track is a crucial ability that you can’t do without.
Automatic tracks are a new addition to Ableton Live, and you can learn more about them here.
As a long-time Ableton user, I’ve been excited about the ability to customize my tracks ever since I first heard about it. I’ve been playing with the new Track Editor and the whole Track Wizard to learn about the new controls and see how everything works. I’ve been using the Track Editor for a while now and have been using the Track Wizard a lot. But I’m still a bit rusty as I’m still learning more.
And with that, I present the “How to Curve Automation in Ableton” which is a lengthy tutorial. If you want to learn automation, theres a ton of free tutorials out there. But I wanted to share this one to show you how to curve automation in Ableton.
First, to get to know Ableton, the tools are there for you to use to get started.
First things first, you need a basic MIDI controller.
We normally use an Roland Juno-60 or a Juno-70, but I have found some of the newer Roland controllers to be a bit more powerful.
I’ve found Ableton to be much more powerful than the new Juno controller. The reason why I use the Juno controller is that it’s much more powerful than the Juno. I often buy a new Juno controller and start from scratch with it. To get started, first start with the Juno-70 controller (the Juno comes with the Juno-60 and Juno-70 controllers on the list below), then look at the Juno-70 and see if it’s working.
I found that the older Roland controllers were a bit too powerful and too big for my taste. I prefer the smaller, lighter Juno (50mm x 15mm) controller. The fact that it’s now available on Amazon means I can buy it right now if I’m not using one of the more powerful ones at the moment.
