nope...there are 3 types of envelops: Volume, Panning and Automation-which is new to Acid Pro 4.0

1.) Volume Envelope is what it draw in your envelope and move the points to vary the levels of the volume.

2.) Panning Envelope is basically the same, only panning from left to right.

3.) Automation Envelope is, again, the same only using effects.

simple enough?

When you have the envelope tool selected, you can highlight multiple Points and do Copy + Paste type stuff with them too... here's a little tutorial wot I wrote - it's based on Vegas 3, but the principle is the same.

Also means you don't move the audio files by mistake...

Great tutorial, Mike! Thanks!

I'm wondering if you can use this technique to paste envelopes to other tracks as well? I tried doing that once before in Acid and couldn't get it to work, but it was probably because I didn't quite know what I was doing.

Yes, you can. You just have to make sure you have the desired track selected and the cursor placed where you want the copied envelope to begin.
