    Automation parameter focus in LP9?
    To quote someone from another forum: "I love Ableton for automation: Click on ANY automatable parameter (vol/pan, any plugin control), and that then automatically becomes focused on that track, for instant editing delight." Is there a way to get Logic to do this? Just to make sure - what I want to be able to do is click on a software synth or effect knob in the synth/effect's GUI and the selected logic automation lane updates accordingly.

    Hi Futant, There is a way... but it might not be super convenient... First, I'd recommend learning / assigning key commands to toggle the current (or all tracks) into Latch or Touch mode. I've set Toggle current track automation Latch/Read as ctrl-option-command-L. 1. Switch track into Latch or Touch mode 2. Press Play 3. Click a parameter on your plug-in. The Automation lane view updates to show you the currently selected parameter. If you wrote some unwanted automation or created an unwanted node doing these steps a simple 'Command-Z' will undo that. Not as quick as Live methinks, but a decent workaround. :) Rounik

    That's how I had been doing it but I hadn't assigned a key command to toggle the automation mode. Thanks for the tip Rounik!

    No probs Funtant! Would be nice if Logic had a "show selected parameter in track automation" function which worked when the transport is not running... :) R
