Hello, I am new to AA and I have problems with effect settings: whenever I apply settings they only get applied point-in-time, not globally like in Ableton Live. Examples: (1) I modify settings of a VST plugin (it immediately snaps-back when I release the mouse button), (2) I turn the effects rack on and off again, it is applied point-in-time. This happens when I do modifications while I play the recording to get a preview of what the effect does. However, I do not want to apply this effect point-in-time, but globally for the whole track. How do I turn this point-in-time feature off?

The basic idea is that you set the automation to Write rather than touch or latch, and when you've finished, set it to Read.
Hi Steve. You are right, that solved it. I have set it to Off. Also fine?
Yes, off is fine. But if you put manual points in with the mouse, they won't do anything if you do that - you have to set it back to read if you want to activate them.
Thank you. Another noob question: When I don't want any automation at all, should I set it to "Off", or to "Read"? I didn't want to do automation at all, must have enabled it by accident.
