Recording automation for knobs and faders works in the Track view, the Console view, and Synth Rack. You can record automation during both playback and recording operations.
To write-enable an individual track or bus control, right-click the fader or control you want to automate and choose Automation Write Enable from the pop-up menu.
To write-enable individual plug-in parameters, right-click the name of the plug-in in the effects bin, and choose Write Enable Parameter from the pop-up menu. This opens a dialog box that allows you to choose which parameters to write-enable.
To write-enable individual synth parameters, right-click the synth’s Automation Write button in the Synth Rack, and choose Write Enable Parameter from the pop-up menu. This opens a dialog box that allows you to choose which parameters to write-enable.
To write-enable all parameters in an audio track, bus, synth, or effect, enable the Automation Write button on the track, bus, Synth Rack strip, or plug-in property page you are recording automation for. Enabling the Automation Write button on a track or bus also write-enables all parameters of any effects on the track or bus.After you record the automation data, SONAR draws a graph of it (an envelope) in the Clips pane, which you can edit with the mouse by adding and dragging nodes (see the rest of this chapter). Once you record automation data in a track, the widget that you automated displays an indicator to show that automation has been applied. You can also group controls, so that automating one control automates all the controls in the group.
