Friday evening my automation in Pro Tools wasn’t working!
I was working in Pro Tools as usual, then when I got to the end of the song it is time to have fun using automation to add “Ear Candy,” it wasn’t working. My automation isn’t working! For the life of me I couldn’t understand why it wasn’t working. I’ve used automation on every single mix pretty much every day using Pro Tools and now it just isn’t working?!?!
What is going on?!
So I started trouble shooting trying to figure out what I did wrong, did I change something in my preferences? Is it my new template? What was the problem??
Then it finally hit me after I shut my rig down for the weekend and brought it back up on Monday. I got it working and all was good. In case your automation ever stops working suddenly I will show you what to check so you can fix your problem and always be up and running!
