Recording Automation Without Recording Over Clip

I'm in arrangement view, and I have a drum beat laid out in clips. I want to do some filter automation on the hi hat clip to gradually mix it in, however I can't figure out how to record JUST the automation. Every time I try, it will record over the clip entirely. I don't have the track ARMED, however I do have it selected (so I can control the filter with the PUSH controller) and so the track arm button is dimly red.


Does this make any sense? Please help! Thanks

    There's a + sign near the top by the record button. Select it to prevent the overdub. The button is called Midi Overdub. I had the same issue to.

    I'm sure since this went unanswered for a year you had figured this out, but this will be helpful for the future stoners like me who didn't hover the mouse on that button to read the description.
