Let’s say I’ve got this stereo drum track where I’d like to have this special reverb on the snare hits only, by means of off-line editing; the transport is not running.
I’ve prepared a nice reverb on a FX-track and I’ve got a FX-send to this reverb assigned on my stereo drum track.
I turned up the FX-send to -6dB, but I switched the send off. Now I want to automate this FX-send-on-and-off-button on the hits of the snare.
I thought; this is gonna be very easy; I select my stereo drum-track, open up its underlaying automation-track and assign the FX-send-on-and-off-button to this automation-track. The automation-track shows there is no data yet: the grey line is at the off-position (at the bottom).
Now, I range-select the first snare hit on my stereo drum track, and by means of my cursor keys, I move the range selection from the track with the audio-data to the automation-track which shows the FX-send-on-and-off-button-state. I press KeyCommand “P” in order to set the Left and Right locators (aka Loop Points) to my range selection, I press “Loop” in the fill-column of my Automation Panel in order to let Nuendo “fill” only the range-selection with my newly written automation-data, and then I’d like to move the grey automation-line from the off-position (the bottom) to the on-position (the top)…nothing happens.
What am I doing wrong?
Or; what is the right approach in editing/writing non-dynamic-automation-data within ranges?
