Automation Issue with Korg NanoKontrol 2 Controller

Hi all!!

As the title suggests, I’m attempting to automate midi notes via the Korg Nanokontrol 2, but after activation of the Write button and following all required procedures, I still cannot use the Nano (via midi learn) to control automation selections within Cubase.
I’ve setup the Korg via Mackie Control, and tried numerous variations of getting the Korg into ‘mode’, but still with no joy!
The strange thing is, I can use the Nano to control all the parameters when not in automation, again via midi learn, but for everything else?
I’m thinking I’ve overlooked an automation setting??

I don’t know if this helps, but I also have a CC121 controller, and the only other option I can figure out is maybe the CC121 is conflicting with the Korg?

Any help, guys would be amazing!!
