There are certain times when adjusting clip gain (volume) makes more sense than utilizing automation. 

For example, what if you want a whole section of a vocal to be louder or softer? Not a single word, part of a word or phrase, but a section?

It’s a situation where using the actual clip gain, or the overall volume of the audio file itself, makes a lot of sense, rather than going in an adding automation.

In the video, Joe Gilder explains the approach, offers examples, and he also talks about situations where it’s a faster, simpler and/or more flexible direction.
