Have Knob - Will Travel.. I.e. How To Automate?

hi, what is the correct procedure for me to move a knob in my usb-controller, and have “currently_selected_automation” get written-to?

wat?? Ctrl+m, midi map the selected automation slider to your controller first then press record or what ya mean? :)

let’s say im in the pattern matrix, and rightmousebutton myself to “show automation”. I would like to enter data directly into the volume of the song directly into the automation editor. how do i do that without cliking away on the mouse. im wondering if i could just use some sort of an all-around-knob to just program directly into the automation editor itself.
