SOLVED: Automation on locked tracks move with insert silence


I want to insert a silence, but keep certain tracks where they are. I lock the tracks so they don’t move, but I noticed that the automation on those tracks still shifts forward.

Any way to lock the automation of the locked tracks as well so they don’t shift when using “insert silence”?


Try the preference, “Automation follow events” or something like that. (Uncheck it)


I had thought that might be it, but it didn’t work.

Luckily, I’m an idiot. Turns out my track height was too small to see that each automation lane has its own lock. :blush: I was trying to use the lock on the inspector panel, which I now see is just for the track.

All good!
