Is there a way in Ardour to insert automation in a similar way to tat demonstrated here (from the 6min mark) https://youtu.be/NgHEJUNEMxs?t=361 ?
Basically they are selecting a bit of a region using the marquee tool, then dragging the automation line up. This creates automation points automatically at the start and the end of the selection, so the range can be boosted or cut as needed.
At the moment if I want to boost a section in Ardour I would
- Go into automation mode
- Make 4 automation points, two at the beginning and two at the end of the section I want to change
- Click and drag the line between the inner automation points to apply the boost / cut
Is there a better way?
