so I imported some old Midi files into Logic and the volume/panning automation was still intact, however I couldn't override or disable it.
I hit the 'show automation' button and select 'write' on each track. Then I set the levels to 0 and hit play and the old panning/automation is still occurring in the background completely ignoring the new settings.
Is this an issue with the midi file? Or am I missing something?
If this is still unclear, I could make a quick screen cast showing the exact steps i'm taking.
