Finisher NEO can be fully automated and you will realize quickly that that is big fun and significantly adds to your music. Create stunning intros or risers slowly rising the Effect Knob e.g. in the Infinity or Comb & Space Modes, build cool step-sequences by switching the Mode every beat or add breath to vocals by fading in delays only on last words.
The following parameters can be automated via DAW Automation and - with the exception of Mode - using MIDI Control Change events:
- Variation 1
- Variation 2
*Mode automation is implemented as an experimental bonus, not a feature complying to UJAMs high UX standards. Please handle with care! When automating Mode, please be aware that only the bottom quarter of the automation curve will be used.
To automate a parameter using the automation of your DAW, just find where you activate automation - usually, that’s a menu in the track inspector - and choose the parameter. The Finisher NEO automation menu in Logic looks like this:
Caution: MIDI Controllers
MIDI Learn dialog for the Effect Knob
ONLY if your DAW permits MIDI control of effect plugins - Logic or Ableton Live, for example, don’t, but Reaper does - you can use any MIDI controller that sends MIDI CC# events to automate Finisher NEOs parameters - knobs on a master keyboard, sliders on a push controller, pedals.
To assign a NEO parameter to control, open the MIDI Learn dialog (usually per right-click) and move the controller you want to assign.
