Quick Controls/VST Controls...how?

Hey Guys,

I’m trying to use TouchOsc to control some parameters from inserts on an instrument channel.
I’ve added the touch Osc midi input to the Quick controls panel and mapped a few faders; they are on midi channel 1 and assigned to cc controllers 1-8.

But it does not seem to work - I either control elements of the VSTi Synth (filter cutoff, volume), or the assignments in the Quick Controls panel in the inspector flip to whatever was automatically assigned.

What I really want is to just assign a touch osc fader to a parameter/value I select in the Quick Controls panel, and automate it without anything else happening at the same time…what am I doing wrong?
