It would seem to be useful to be able to take an automation track and change already edited track values such as, increase all the gains by one dB (as an example), as a single entry. Once one gets into automating a mix sometimes changes become necessary and it is rather tedious going through manual editing to tweaks all of a track's (volume etc.) automation parameters.
It would also be nice to be able to produce a “csv” file of all the automation values in a Song to allow reviewing / editing in a spreadsheet and then be able apply the edited values directly back onto the track.

This may sound technical to some but it would be a very powerful feature and a significant time and effort saver.

I like the idea, but I think an integrated parameter list editor that is able to edit multiple parameters (cells/items) at once would be a lot easier to work with. Simply because you keep context?

You can already extract XML of the automation envelopes from the song files. However it's not easy to keep context when not hearing the actual result. A CSV export of 5 nodes will look something like this:


Changes would be pretty hard to imagine without hearing does changes in context.
