You can not record or edit automation data on an instrument track. To use automation on an instrument track, you must first split the instrument track into separate audio and MIDI tracks, create or edit the automation data on the MIDI track, then recombine the tracks into an instrument track. For details, see Splitting an instrument track to separate audio and MIDI tracks and Converting an audio and MIDI track to a single instrument track.
