I’m trying to adjust the volume peaks within audio regions in Cubase 7.5, but I want something simple that doesn’t take too much effort and time. I did a Pro Tools 101 exam about three years ago and I remember using the smart tool which allowed you to make a horizontal selection and bring the volume down just on that selection within a single audio region. However, I’ve never managed to find a way to replicate this in Cubase.
The problem I find with automation is when automation is applied to a track, when you want to later turn the volume up or down you either have to select all the automation points or use automation on a gain control and change the fader on the track itself not the gain plugin. Could some please explain how they ‘level out’ there vocals?
