Audio channel automation not moving

Post by oscillator »

I have a WAVE track, then I added some automation (volume) to make the recorded guitar work with verse/chorus. But when moving the clip (I moved everything, both MIDI and audio) to add some intro bars, the automation doesn't move with the clip.

How can I move automation with the clip as the automation is per-track (right?).

(MusE if awesome!)

Hello oscillator.

MusE audio automation: Not so awesome - to move points around.
We don't currently have a mechanism to move the graph points as a group,
or even move them with a part when the part is moved :-(

Plans are very slowly taking shape, though. Much too slowly...

As you might guess, it is a very tricky thing since the audio automation graphs were
quickly added to allow us to at least manipulate the graphs.
But as you can see we allowed drawing the graphs directly on the Arranger view,
which makes moving them with a part very tricky.

We had several detailed discussions about what to do about it.
I have some ideas that I will try move forward with.

To be fair, it was only recently that the MIDI controller automation graphs gained the ability
to copy/cut/paste/move the graph points - after nearly twenty years!

For now unfortunately, the audio automation graph points must be moved by hand.

Tim.

Thank you Tim, appreciate your effort in all things MusE! :)

Even if it is not perfect, the audio automation is still awesome. I just have to plan ahead some more!

Thanks!
