The VS-2000 Automix Gradation feature provides a smooth transition between two different Automix snapshot values. This is useful if you’re trying to fade-in or fade-out on specific tracks.
1. Move the now line (the time) to the location at which you want to take a snapshot.
2. If Automix isn’t already turned on, press AUTOMIX so it lights solidly.
3. Hold down SHIFT and press AUTOMIX to open the Automix Edit screen.
4. Set any Automix track whose settings you want to capture to Write mode by using the ZOOM cursor buttons and the TIME/VALUE dial.
5. While holding down AUTOMIX, press REC—AUTOMIX starts flashing to signify that it’s ready to take the snapshot.
6. Go to the point at which you wish to start the gradation and press the IN button. Move the faders to the desired positions, and then take the snapshot by holding AUTOMIX and pressing TAP MARKER/SNAPSHOT.
7. Go to the point at which you wish to end the gradation and press the OUT button. Move the faders to the desired positions and take the Snapshot by holding AUTOMIX and pressing TAP MARKER/SNAPSHOT.
8. Hold down AUTOMIX and press REC so that AUTOMIX lights solidly to show it’s no longer ready to record.
9. Hold down SHIFT and press AUTOMIX to open the Automix Edit screen.
10. Set the Automix tracks from Write mode to Read mode.
11. Press F1 (TARGET), and use the TIME/VALUE dial or cursor buttons to select “TRACK MIXER: LEVEL”. Press ENTER.
12. Use the up and down cursor buttons and F3 (MARK) to choose the tracks to be effected by the gradation—a check mark is displayed next to the chosen tracks.
13. Press the PAGE button until you see “GRAD” above F2, and then press F2. A pop-up screen displays the corresponding IN and OUT times. Select the desired curve using the cursor buttons and the TIME/VALUE dial.
14. Press ENTER to implement the gradation. Press DISPLAY/HOME to return to normal operating mode.
