Automation data ... pretty curves to control stuff like volume, panning.

For using one automation track to control both the volume of a track and 
some MIDI instrument, the automation data would have to be translated to 
the MIDI controler 7, with values between 0 and 127 (-> type and range 

DSSI = softsynth plugins.

Node refers to any object you can make connections to/from.

Track intermodulation: Feeding 2 or more tracks into one effect plugin 
that will generate a signal based on both (I'm not even sure myself this  
is the right term). Like ringmodulation or a vocoder.
