I am wondering if I can use a midi controller to write automation for plugin parameters. For example, if I want to create a low pass filter sweep, usually I draw this in with the mouse. I have been trying to create the automation by assigning the parameter knob to my midi controller. I am able to control the LPF frequency with my midi controller, but I can't seem to record the automation. I have tried "touch" mode, "write" mode, record, but no luck.
The frequency changes in real time, but then the automation is not recorded and doesn't take effect during playback.
I can write automation this way with channel pan and volume. Is it just not possible to use "touch" mode to write automation for anything other than pan and volume?
