Automation is not enabling Pro EQ

Hi, all.

Kinda new to Studio One (4), so I hope you can help me out.

I have a track with beats, featuring automation on Pro EQ to create a "drop". I automate LF, with Q, Gain and Frequency. The track starts with the parameters lowered from start, and after 8 bars they are animated up to "normal". The Active-parameter is always set to ON (max).

What happens is that the Active-flag is suddenly set to OFF, and this happens a bit randomly. Most consistent is if I create a loop spanning the drop (e.g between bars 6 and 9). When the loop resets to bar 6, the LF filter is then turned off, in reality turning off the EQ and the automations. When the playback hits the automation that happens in bar 8 (the drop), the active flag is turned on again.

Why would the active-flag turn off when the playback loops back to bar 6? The "envelope" for LF-Active is _always_ on max, and is never really changed.

My apologies if the description is not clear. Will emphasize on request!

OK, it might be that this was (is) actually a bug. A restart of Studio One seems to have fixed the problem. Will report back if it appears again, and close this case if it doesn't within a short time.
