I’m trying to mix a track that has a lot of volume automation and need a way to be able to adjust the output gain on individual channels even if they have volume automation on them. In the past when I’ve mixed on a desk, each channel has had a gain control at the top of the strip and this can be adjusted even when the faders are automated, but how can I do this in Cubase?
So far the only way I’ve found is to go into the volume automation track and manually move all of the automation points up or down by however many dB if I want to increase or decrease output gain, but this is not a viable solution at all for something that should literally be as simple as moving a slider or turning a knob.
I’ve tried contacting support but it’s been over a week with no response and this has put a total stop to the mixing process. Can anybody help? I must be missing something very simple as there’s no way Steinberg would design a piece of professional DAW software without such fundamental functionality included.
