Automating Vst Fx

Is there anyway to automate VST effects? The VSTi automate device obviously is for instruments only it seems…

(forgive me if it’s something obvious i’m missing)


Also there is a downward triangle/arrow next to the on off tick for VST fx (when they are selected and visible in the fx chain). The parameters will appear as sliders like for the native fx. Now you can manually record the automation in the pattern editor using the right mouse button on the sliders (as with the native fx)
