Can somebody help to to enable capturing automation from my midi keyboard/controller? I'm using Naitive Instruments Komplete Kontrol s61 midi keyboard/controller with their Komplete Kontrol plugin in Sony Acid Pro 7. I'm recording midi tracks just fine but the automation for some effects is not being captured. Pan, modulation, and velocity is captured just fine but things like, color, shape, and others is not. As I play/record and simultaneously adjust the knobs that control those things I hear what is expected through the monitors but for some reason those adjustments are not being recorded. Please help!!

You could try something i have done occasionally. Although i don't use my keyboard midi controller very often i have done automation after the fact by enabling the midi merge button and then going back into a plugin and moving various features while recording. In theory you should be able to do this externally as well.

Thanks for the tip! What you're describing could be quite useful. Fortunately I was able to find out how to record automation in real time. You have to ensure the Automation setting on the track bar is set to Write.
