Ok I figured out how to save the Automation (Record) and I can even see the volume dial go down automatically each time I play through the pattern. However, when I play through that pattern in my song, the automation is not heard, instead it's the same as before. But as soon as I switch to play only the pattern I do hear it. Why is not updating the pattern in the playlist? I've tried replacing and moving it elsewhere in the song but nothing works.
I don't think recording the automation is a good idea, I'll explain how you can edit the actual automation, but let's get rid of what you recorded first. I hope that you haven't touched any other knobs while recording the volume change...make sure you're in the right patter, right click the volume knob, click edit events.
In that window, hit ctrl+A, then hit Delete (to get rid of the recorded changes) (left part of image)
So, you HAVE clicked on create automation clip. This shows up as a channel under 'automation clips'. Don't touch it there. Open up your playlist, there should be a clips section (right part of image)
You can click and drag the right side of the automation clip to make it longer. Add new points by right clicking in the area I marked (might blue). By left clicking and dragging you can change the place of existing points. Right clicking a dot gives you some more options for the line arriving in that point, besides enabling you to delete.
You can click and drag in the middle of a line to change the tension.
Right clicking the top bar (marked in green) of the clip will delete it.
Oh, and if you can't find the clips section of your playlist, try dragging down the top bar of your playlist, or the bottom one up, depends how your playlist is set.
