How do I record automation in session view clips?

It's possible to record automation in arrangement mode but is it possible to record automation for session view clips? I have to draw them in manually at the moment

    This is basically not a limitation any more. In Live 9 you can record automation envelopes in Session or Arrangement which can be unlinked from the clip length.

    It is not possible per se in the moment. There are some workarounds though.

    If it is for a Synth in a MIDI Clip, you may use normal CC Controler Recording.

    Then there is the workaround with a MIDI-Loopback driver, where you record MIDI Clips that get routed as remote control.

    another workaround is to use Max for Live.

    there is at least one device that lets you record automation in Session mode.

    Have a look at
