I would like to be to copy/paste the midi automation controllers so that I don't have to spend so much time keying them in separately. Is there any way of doing this as all previous attempts have failed?

This is a bit convoluted....

1. Select the envelope tool mode for the ACID time line.
2. Show the envlope you want to copy on a track
3. Select the duration of the copy
4. Type Ctrl-C or select copy from the context menu when right clicking on a node of the envelope you want to copy.
5. Select the track you want to copy to. Add the envlope type you want to copy to the track. (Note you can copy the curve to any envelope, it does not have to be the same one.)
6. Select the envelope you want to copy to, in this case the new one you just added..
7. Ctrl-V or Paste from the envelope context menu.

Yes, this is a bit high on the mouse click to action ratio. Definitely something we need to look at in the future.

Not at all ! Once you get used to it. As soon as it works.

It doesn't work for you?
