this is only gain automation, and it is directly related to the region -

"show all automation, for me is really not elegant enough, cause it

ok, if you really want to automate every parameter...
if not, do a click a little "a" button underneath  of the track name and 
choose the parameter which you want to automate, than a automation track 
will open and you can go in with the object tool and produce the 
automation points. than change the automation modus from "manual" to 
"play" and enjoy!
