Scale volume automation curve logarithmically?


Recommended Posts

It is scaled in dB which is logarithmic in regard to the level.

(This "dB-linear" scaling has the advantage that setting a volume automation curve point exactly in the middle of to other points exactly on the line which connects the two already existing points doesn't change the volume. Therefore the "dB-linear" scaling is the most natural or correct way to handle volume automation curves. Another way would be to scale the curve according to the volume fader position (which is not linear in dB!), makes some sense, too, but then adding a volume curve point on the straight line between two already existing automation points would change the volume automation, although the curve doesn't change at all.)
