Automation lanes within items to control volume, pitch, pan or even item plugins parameters. Like track automations, at the item level. Cool thing : the item waveform updates to show your volume and pan changes. Non destructible, as always.
Examples of use
Volume : manually control the volume at the item level, to surgically fix/exaggerate parts (de-essing, expanding, “riding” the levels visually, etc.)
Pitch : draw pitch enveloppes on your items to create rises, drops, add movement to your sounds.
Pan : locally adjust the pan without the need to do it at track level, ie. balance channels volumes to keep an even stereo image
FX : automate take plugin parameters
Select item(s) + launch action
For fx parameters:
Add an fx to a take > open take fx chain > select fx > clic on Param > show media item take envelope > select the parameter you want to control
