Summary0007443: MIDI Automation (CC) not being read by Ardour 5.10
DescriptionClear on MIDI automation does not allow new automation to play.
Steps To ReproduceStart a new session, new MIDI track (zynAddsubFX), create a MIDI region, add some notes, on the track select [A]->Controllers->64-79->select 72/Channel 1 - add some automation points, play - all goes well. Then right click on the automation track and select Clear - then put some new points on the automation track - play will not pick up the new points. When I press stop then the automation picks up the last point, ie where it should be, and indeed, if i move the playhead the automation is right at the point at which i let go the mouse, if that makes any sense.

Hi, I built from git last night - seems that the midi automation is being followed now (after a clear), which is great (and I like the new play/off feature) - but the slider doesn't follow the automation, which I like to see (rather than just hear) it moving about - is this your experience with the latest builds?

Version is Ardour 5.10.525
"Atmospheres and Soundtracks"
(rev 5.10-525-ga1143a0)
Intel 64-bit - debug
Ardour5.10.525 (built using 5.10-525-ga1143a0 and GCC version 5.4.0 20160609)

That's my experience too. Still not 100% sure of the correct approach for the fader. If we just go back to have it follow the CC data, it's just a reversion of a commit from several weeks ago.

The issue is that the fader actually sends realtime CC messages when adjusted. This doesn't work well during automation playback so something needs to change, at least a bit.

Thanks for the reply, not sure about the etiquette of discussing it here, but perhaps the fader could be greyed-out (and moving) while there are CC messages playing? I wouldn't expect to be able to move the slider about manually when there is automation going on, so perhaps that could be a compromise?
