Hey Tom I have only just started learning ableton about a week ago and really liked your no nonsense way of teaching and the fact your a kiwi lol and became a pro member. I was following along with your electronic music tutorial 1 of 10 and I had no trouble but now I am going over it again and I am having trouble recording the automation. when i click record it starts automatically then it wipes away the track as it goes past it and replaces it with another track. It seemed to work fine the other day when I tried it so I don't know what I have done or not done for this issue to arise. Your help would be much appreciated.
Hopefully the screenshot will help.

Hey Mate,

Try turning off record for the midi track (the record button at the far right of the track you are trying to record on). You only need the master record button up the top to be on to record automation, by having the track set to record, it's assuming you want to also record in new MIDI notes.

Hope this helps!
