You can automate the parameters of some of SONAR’s effects by drawing envelopes, or recording fader movements, or creating snapshots. You enable all automatable parameters in an effect when you enable the Automation Write button in an effect property page.
1. Patch an automatable effect into the track or bus where you want to use it, and close the effect’s dialog box when it appears.
3. If you opened the Clips pane pop-up menu, choose Envelopes > Create Track Envelope > (name of the effect you patched). If you opened the Bus pane pop-up menu, choose Create Bus Envelope > (name of the effect you patched).The effect’s envelope dialog box appears, listing all the parameters you can automate in the Envelope Exists list.
4. Check all the parameters you want to create envelopes for; as you check each envelope choice, you can choose a color for the envelope by clicking the Choose Color button that’s in the lower right corner of the dialog box.
Note: You can change a plug-in envelope’s color whenever you want by highlighting its name in the effect’s envelope dialog box and clicking the Choose Color button.
5. Click OK.All the envelopes that you checked appear in the track or bus you were working in. You can edit them just like any other envelopes.
