Does recording through USB on the AR12 ignore sliders and mixer knobs?

I'm not sure if this is a bug, or if I'm misunderstanding how the AR12 sends signal through the USB. I'm recording onto a Windows PC, using Adobe Audition. I have a multitrack setup, and each channel is recording onto its own separate track. Audition will reflect when I adjust the gain knobs, but when I move the volume slider, any of the mixing knobs, or try to add digital effects, none of those changes are reflected in the recording. The same thing occurs with Capture 2 and Studio One Artist, so I don't think it's a conflict with Audition itself.

Thanks very much for any help!

The AR Series Mixers are Analog Mixer with a USB Audio Interface for the Audio bus. The fader and knob movements are not captured as automation in your DAW, this is by design. The StudioLive Series III mixers support this feature.
