hi everybody!

can anyone explain how "touch" automation works in ardour, and if 
there's a workaround to get the behringer bcf to work in touch mode?

afaiu, professional controllers generate an additional "fader touch" 
event - i wonder how that would translate to a simple MIDI controller 

is it possible to have ardour react to incoming MIDI events which are 
*not* caused by ardour sending controller feedback?
i.e. ardour lets the faders fly, i grab one, parameter change, ardour 
lets go and starts recording automation events.
alternatively, mapping one of the toggle buttons to a "take manual 
control and write automation/ release manual control and play back 
existing automation" would work as well...

how are other people using touch automation?
