Problem: Expression ramp = step

When I program an expression as a ramp/curve the instrument (tried several) ignore the actual curve and behave as if the curve type is set to “Step”.
To clarify, Im in the Key Editor, editingexpression events in the area below the notes. I have Curve type set to “Ramp/Curve”, but instead of following the ramp/curve the settings mapped to the CC dont change until the next “dot” in the expression ‘automation’. When it hits the ‘dot’ it changes instantly to that value.

I’ve tried several CC’s and different instruments. What am I doing wrong?
Im on Cubase Pro 11.

Best to post a screenshot, I think
