Note: this feature is available in the Pro edition only.

The mixer sections and audio effects can be automated (ie. the knobs can be programmed to turn automatically while the transport is running). This can be used to change a track's pan position, to add more reverb to part of a track etc.

All automation movements have to be programmed using a control's Automation Editor, which works just like an Automated Fader effect. It's not possible to record fader or knob movements directly. To pop up a control's Automation Editor you should click the Automation button in the bottom right corner of the main window first, and then click the control. Alternatively you can simply rightclick the control. The VIEW button can be used to add tabs for other automatable parameters of the mixer section/effect. Using the tabs you can switch between parameters easily.

If the mixer section is a track or the effect is in a track the track's audio/MIDI data is displayed in the background. Scrubbing will be available as well, it uses the parameter values at the needle position and doesn't include any effects.

A small blue square appears in the bottom right corner of an automated control. Automation can be undone by deleting all dots in the editor (click Sel All followed by Delete). An automated control can still be controlled using the mouse. This will move the whole automation curve, as it appears in the control's Automation Editor, up or down.
