As usual, maybe I missed a way of doing this… in which case, feel free to enlighten me.
I have a one-hour long project. Early on, I’ve had to work on the end of it and write some automation.
I now want to work on earlier sections. I’d like the fader value when I drop out of automation write (e.g. when I hit stop) copied to the end of the project…
…Except no, I don’t… I want it copied to the start of the automation I’ve already written near the end of the project. Otherwise it’ll overwrite the automation I’ve already created at the end of the project.
So, what I want is to select where in the project the last automation value I write gets filled to. Right now I can only select “Fill To End” (overwrite the later automation), or “Fill Loop” which fills backwards to the L locator as well as forwards to the R locator.
Please can we have separate Fill To Loop End and Fill To Loop Start options? Switching on both would produce the same behaviour as Fill Loop. But Fill to Loop End would mean I can “fill forwards” to wherever I want in the project, without destroying the automation I just wrote.
I’d have thought this was obvious… unless I’ve missed something?
Before you say it, Virgin Territory helps a bit, but it’s not really a complete solution. Nor is it a particularly intuitive one in a lot of situations.
