Production Master Class

"Production Master Class" is a serie of articles about music production techniques. Beatportal.com has asked some Beatport artists and producers on their approaches to various production techniques and reported their answers in roundtable format. You can find some amazing tips & tricks there. For example trance producers known as Tritonal (one of my favourite trance producers by the way) mostly automate track volume parameter but there's one usable trick.
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.
