*
Track Name. Assign a name to the selected bus.
*
Time Base. Choose one of the two options in this section to control what happens to automation when you change the tempo:
*
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. This drop-down menu lets you choose the automation write mode:
*
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.
*
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.
*
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.
