    Does anyone know if it's possible to record an automation clip live? Like if I linked a filter cutoff to one of my keyboards faders could I record that fader motion as an automation clip? I think it'd make it much easier to edit and "perfect" the automation instead of recording it into the "edit events" section which it does by default. Any info on this is much appreciated as I can seem to find an answer for it.

    You cannot, I dont think. It will be an 'edit event' in any case. Other daws do handle it more wisely I must say.

    man that sucks... that would make automation so much easier for wobbles (i'm trying to step away from LFO's to make it more rough and less perfect)

    They still appear as event edits, not automation clips.

    You can turn event data into an automation clip - in the edit events menu, go to Edit > Turn into automation clip. It isn't automatically placed in the playlist though.
