Euphonix: Choosing Automation Modes

The Euphonix devices only support Read and Write automation modes. Logic Express, however, also features Touch and Latch automation modes. When you use the Euphonix devices with Logic Express, activating Read/Write mode activates Touch mode in Logic Express. Latch mode cannot be activated with these devices.
