    Possible To Trigger Instrument Fades?
    I realize that automation isn't the focus in Mainstage, but is there any roundabout way to trigger fade ins? I'm currently fading in an ultrabeat track into a piano performance using my expression pedal, would prefer to free up my feet. Is this something that can be done with Ableton?

    Hi Funkhowser, Check Rounik's post here where he mentions that you can use Logic and Mainstage together for event automation (as Logic has a timeline), but an expression pedal is probably the best route. [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/forum/audio/mainstage/29268[/url] You could also try using the Enveloper plugin to dial in some volume fades, but they will be set. You won't be able to change them on the fly. They will be set by the Attack and Release times of the plugin. Ableton has an Events section where you can draw in envelopes on clips. But it will also not be done on the fly, unless you are using a controller like an expression pedal. Any one else have other suggestions?
