Unwanted midi automation printed into clips, when controlling soft synths from midi controller

Hi guys


I have a couple of midi controllers (TOUCH imposcar, arturia laboratory) that dont require any mapping to control things like filter, resonance etc on the plug-in.


All you have to do is record arm the track and you pots are the correct midi cc and you can fuck with the plug-in perfectly. Great


But after moving filter & resonance, for example, when i THEN record some notes, the POSITION of the filter and resonance is written into the clips automation, as a flat line, with a dot at the start.


After this, if you then move the filter and res. and playback the clip with the notes, the clip automation will RETURN THE FILTER AND RES to that old position, meaning you cant change the sound untill you remove that automation. Too much clicking for me. PAIN!


My question: Does anyone else experience this problem? Or even have a solution (not a workaround - it doesnt happen in logic)

Im talking to ableton atm, but want to see if the users out there have has this problem too, or if its just me?

    Have you tried using the 'overdub' function?
