How To Use Filter Automation To Create Fading Effect

Automating filter settings is a nice way to create those cool fade in or fade out effects. I’ve been using this method quite a lot in my song intros and breakdowns. It’s easy to do yet it’s very effective at building up the tension in your song.

In this tutorial video, I’ll show you how to use Fruity Love Philter and automation clips to create a low-pass, and a high-pass filter fades.

    HEy…this is pretty amazing…..and lemme ask u did u made the drum loop….its awesome 🙂

    • Thanks! I built the drum loop from several single hit samples (kick, drum, hihats, percussion, etc) and I also used Reaktor 5 and added a processing using such VST effect as Guitar Rig 4.

    Tip to use an automation clip to control the loop’s channel volume (in order to avoid unnecessary clipping) was very helpful!

    THX, Petri!

    Hi Petri:

    One quick question….How do you get all of the pattern pieces into one merged clip that you can assign a mixer track to the whole thing instead of just one part of the merged clip??
