Using Live 11 Is it possible to automate permeameters in a plugin inserted in a chain such as in my image. (Want to automate the dry / wet settings of the tsar for instance?? Thanks for helping!!

    Nope. This is why it’s pointless adding effects in the Komplete plug-in when you are in a daw. Just add the plug-in direct to the track as usual.

    Yeah the issue comes down to the fact (I believe) that host automation is open to the instrument but not effects plugins. If it was, either there would be too many parameters to map for automation or a new system would be needed (like Kontakt) where you have to first go through and "enable host automation" for the parameters you want to control which personally I would not be a fan of, it defeats the purpose of KK being a quick way to load instruments and start automating any mapped parameters.

    The other issue is simply having all those plugins within KK, it would be a nightmare when you have to reinstall a system, open your project and simply see nothing loaded. KK does not alert you to what plugin/s are missing so just be aware of that too that if plugins are missing it just loads blank and you have to figure out what is missing with a blindfold.

    "The other issue is simply having all those plugins within KK" Yes I can see how that could be a mess....
