So, I am not a Newbie at all, but all of my projects for the last 10 years have been single stereo track mastering jobs. Now I am doing live multitrack recording on Samp 9.0 Pro (upgrade to 11 Pro on its way to me).

So, I want to do this, and don't know how:

I want to move faders iteratively as I mix to 'refine' my automation. In other words, I want my fader moves recorded, and then every time I touch the fader again, i want to 'overdub' those changes until i let go of it. This, to me, is the most natural form of fader automation - you do your basic moves, and then over and over, on playback, you refine them until they're perfect. However, it seems that once I press that 'A' button, the faders move the way I recorded them last and I have no ability to override. Am i wrong?

Also: does Samplitude 11 have mute automation yet?
