Many producers jump right in and start automating the fader on a track. What many do not realize, is that once all of your faders are automated, re-leveling can be a nightmare. A slicker thing to do is to use Live’s Utility plug-in on each track and automate its gain.
About reverb and delay automation:
Time-based plug-ins - like reverb and delay - can muddy a mix and create a very washy sounding track if left unchecked, so in those cases we’ll automate not only the feedback and wet parameters, but also the low and high cutoff on these plugs.
