This works almost exactly as described in the Recording Automation Using Onscreen Controls section but instead of moving or clicking the mouse on virtual on-screen controllers, you’ll be able to record the movements of the knobs, sliders, or buttons on a hardware controller, which is really fun and more impressive for studio bystanders.

To record automation using a dedicated hardware controller such as the Mackie MCU or Novation Launchpad, see Using Natively Supported Hardware Controllers.
