How do I use FaderPort for automation in Logic of effects other than volume and pan?

I've successfully installed Faderport with Logic Pro X and have managed to record (in touch mode) volume and pan settings for a few tracks no problem. But I would also like to control automation of other effects (like EQ etc) with the Faderport - is that possible and if so how? Thanks!

Worked it out (I think!) using external assignment within Logic, though I have to return to defaults to undo my assignment - seemed to introduce some buggy behaviour too (like the play/pause button not working). Still like to know if there's an easier way from the Faderport though.

Same problem here! And automation of the effects with the faderport v2 is the reason why I bought it...

Basically when I start the LEARN process the unit starts a buggy behavior.

Any advice on how to solve the problem?

Yes I also bought the unit to control automation and then got told it can’t do it.☹️

A firmware update to use the link button would be appreciated.

Hey, same problem here....And I first bought this device for automation process. So, the link button, wich works fone with studio one, there is no function on logic ... the manual says that.
