V10 VCA Automation Bug?

Postby ckalcov » Tue May 01, 2018 10:39

Hi all,

Not sure if this is a bug and/or anybody has come across this before and knows a solution: sometimes when writing automation to a VCA track, whether it be on write mode or preview mode, the corresponding channels get “locked” at the previous state so you cannot make any volume changes (the VCA fader moves but you cannot hear anything change). However when you press stop, the automation writes correctly to those tracks. This would be bearable if you could at least hear what you were doing whilst writing but it doesn’t, it just locks those faders under the VCA regardless until you hit stop after writing. Is there a reason for this or, if a bug, a way of kicking it back into action?

Thanks for any help!

Hi Ckalcov
One day I also had this problem with automating the VCA fader, later I found out it does the same automation moves
on two other tracks that were not in write mode.
I'm not sure but I think this a bug
Take care,

I find this to behave the same way in v11.1.5.
Any workarounds possible?
