    Hi, I’m new to Podium, in fact, I use a commercial DAW (Live) and have been trying different freeware DAWs for a client of mine, which is how I came to be working with podium free.

    My question is this, how do I, (or indeed, can I,) record changes to the volume fader of a mixer on the fly in the automation data?

    specific example. I load a backing track into one audio track. I record from a microphone into a second audio track. The volume in the second track does not need to change at all, but I need to be able to adjust the volume fader on track one, and record the changes as parameter automation data.

    I am sure this question has been answered in the documentation somewhere, I can’t find it though and I’ve spent an hour searching the wiki, so if anyone can post a link, that would be great, thank you. I’ve read lots of information on how to automate plugings etc, but nothing to just simply record automation for moving the volume fader. Can’t work it out and I feel dumb for having to ask. 🙁


    I’ve worked it out, never mind, thank you anyway. It wasn’t that hard after all 😳


    Yeah, sorry, many chapters in the guide are outdated at the moment, but it’s being worked on!

    Some extra information:

    Level automation controls an offset applied to the track’s level, so if you have the track level set to -inf, you can’t bring the level up from that by using automation.

    Also, you actually don’t need to arm parameter tracks for recording – adjustments to faders on parameter tracks are always recorded.

    Oh, and if you ever need to automate post-fx level (or anywhere in the effect chain), you can do that by right-clicking an effect and selecting the automate parameter menu option from there.
