Automation clips are a powerful tool in Ableton Live that can be used to automate almost any parameter in the software. In performance mode, they can be used to create dynamic and evolving sounds, as well as to control various aspects of the Live set.
To create an automation clip, first select the track that you want to automate. Then, create a new clip in the track by clicking the “Create” button in the clip view.
In the new clip, select the parameter that you want to automate from the drop-down menu. For example, if you want to automate the track’s volume, select “Volume” from the menu.
Next, click the “Record” button in the clip view and begin playing the track. As the track plays, the automation clip will record the changes in the selected parameter.
Once the track is finished playing, the automation clip will be automatically created and will appear in the track’s clip view.
Now, when you play back the track, the automation clip will play back the recorded changes in the selected parameter. This can be used to create dynamic and evolving sounds, as well as to control various aspects of the Live set.

Why is my automation clip not working?
There are a few things that could be causing this issue:
1. Make sure that your track is enabled for automation. You can do this by clicking the track’s name in the Track List and checking the “Enable Automation” checkbox in the track’s properties window.
2. Make sure that the automation clip is the correct length. If it is too short, it will not play back properly.
3. Make sure that the automation clip is placed on the correct track. Automation clips can only be placed on tracks that have automation enabled.
4. Make sure that the automation clip is not muted or soloed. If it is, the automation will not play back.
5. Make sure that the track’s playback mode is set to “Playback” and not “Scrub” or “Record”. Automation will not play back in Scrub or Record mode.
