How to make a non-curved automation line?

I'm fairly new to AudioMulch so please forgive me if I've missed something simple...

I just can't seem to figure out how to create linear automation lines, do they have to be curved?

Any help on this would be great.


Thanks a lot,

Hi Adam,

Some parameters display as lines and others as curves. This isn't selectable. The curves reflect the fact that the vertical automation scale is non-linear (for some parameters). What really are straight lines in linear parameter space become curved in the warped display scale.

You can think about this in two ways: either you want the display to be linear (not very useful for log parameters such as frequency), or you want the automation ramps to be lines in the warped (logarithmic) space -- a reasonable request but not something that's possible right now.

Does that make sense? It's hard to explain.
