So, I exported a soloed soft synth instrument track with several automation lanes.
File -> Export -> Midi File… “Export Automation” checked.
According to the manual, “If [export automation] is activated, the automation data (as heard during playback) are converted to MIDI controller events and included in the MIDI file.”
However, after I import this exported type 1 midi file into another DAW (or even Cubase) I do not see any automation (no midi cc events anywhere to be found) – just my note data.
“Read” was indeed selected on the automation lanes. “Mute automation” was not selected.
What am I missing / doing wrong?
