Automatically controlling effects parameter with midi clip


I have an effect on an audio track, and I have a midi clip with notes in a midi track. I would like to control the dry/wet parameter of the reverb effect with the notes of the midi trick.

Does anyone have a preferred way of doing this?

    Hi! I don't think it's possible to automatically control the dry/wet (or any other) parameter with midi notes, but you can go in your midi clip and select the device you want to control a parameter of (in this case Reverb) under Envelopes, beneath that select Dry/wet, draw in the automation curve you want for one note and then simply copy that envelope to each instant a note plays in the clip, it's not that much work. Plus it's more versatile, cause you can also turn up the dry/wet in between notes if you want to, or make the reverb last longer for certain notes etc. Make sure you don't have the dry/wet parameter on the Reverb device itself set to 0% or it won't react to the automation.
