Alright here's a video example of what I'm talking about. When I'm doing a "Touch" Automation on one midi track, while recording a touch track the midi sound stops as soon as I move the slider. The automation still records, it's just that the sound stops during automation. In the video notice that as soon as i move the Volume Automation slider the midi playing stops. Why? I need to be able to monitor this while I'm adjusting the automation. Appreciate anyone's suggestions. It's Logic Express 8.0.2 by the way.
