Using audio to control AE: 2 approaches

Andrew Devis is on a roll with yet another tutorial -- this time it's a 2-part tutorial on Using Audio To Control Effects. It's a unique approach in that they do the same thing but with slightly different methods.

Paraphrasing, the 1st part is the workmanlike approach, both slightly simpler and quicker, and ideal if you are only controlling a couple of items with your audio. Version 2 shows how to keep all the controllers on a single layer and is better suited for more complex projects with many layers, which need good organisation. The first tutorial is better if you are not experienced in using audio and expressions.
