Can the Rotor effect speed by changed with Automation?

Supposedly, Automation can control any parameter in Studio One 4 (Artist), but I don't think it can change the speed of the Rotor effect from fast to slow (or the reverse).  I tried and could not get that to work.

What I finally did was to insert TWO rotors in a track and then use Automation to turn one off and one on simultaneously.  It's kind of clunky, but it works.  Unfortunately, there's no ramp-up or ramp-down on the speed.

Anyone else had any experience with this task?

I accidentally discovered this while experimenting.  You have to set the Automation on whichever speed you're starting with.  In other words, if the organ part with Rotor effect begins in SLOW speed, then THAT is what you set your automation on.   If you start the part on FAST speed, THAT'S where you click for the Automation.   Then, by moving the insert points up or down, the Rotor speed will change.  You can't control the "ramp-up" or "ramp-down" of the speed, but you can at least change it.
