automation resolution after record

Post by mattianlaseppia » Sat Dec 13, 2008 12:22 pm

hello

i've noticed that when i record an automation ableton records all the micro movement and the draw appears very curvy and natural, but when i press stop the automation changes and remains just the higher and lower point of every movements, linked by a straight line rather than a lot of little points of every movement changes..

do you understand what i mean?

there is a way to maintain the natural automation?

i hope yes.. i also seen a function that when you draw it by mouse changes the segmented automation in a curvy automation, but i don't know how to do that also..

thanks to all!

well i've done a first automation with a keyboard knob and during recording the resolution is right, natural, curvy, after become a "saw" only the highest and lowest.

than i've done the same with the draw pencil tool.. and becomes like stairs..

i hope you understand..

i would like to know how to maintain the natural, curvy, automation when i record automation with the keyboard knob.. and i would like to know how to make the draw automation from "stairs" like to "curvy"

turn of the pencil tool.
And you place little points with the mouse.
Youll have to do alot to get that curvey effect. like Pitch bend etc.

About your issue with the keyboard knob..
I dont know man.

RTFM <--- I have the cheek lol :lol:
