Time Base. Choose one of the two options in this section to control what happens to automation when you change the tempo:
list-image
Musical (M:B:T). If the bus is set to the Musical time base, the automation’s M:B:T position stays constant, and its absolute position shifts.

Absolute. If the bus is set to the Absolute time base, its absolute position stays constant, and its M:B:T position shifts.

Write Mode (Producer and Studio only). This drop-down menu lets you choose the automation write mode:
list-image
Touch. Touch mode overwrites any existing automation data for the currently armed parameter only when the parameter is moved with the mouse or a MIDI controller. Automation writing stops when the parameter is released, and the parameter returns to any previously automated position.
list-image
Overwrite. Overwrite mode overwrites any existing automation data for the currently armed parameter while the transport is rolling, even if you don’t touch the parameter.
list-image
Latch. Latch Mode is similar to Touch mode; new automation data overwrites existing automation data when you move a control. However, when you release the parameter, it will remain “latched” into its current position and continue to overwrite any existing automation data until playback stops.

Description. Type a comment or description of the selected bus.
