How do you record the greed circle in Live when i load up a vst ther is a black box and a controller with a green circle that you can drag around i was tweeking and recording but it only recorded the notes played and not the mangled mess i was making with a rapid mouse movement Sqeel Squelch!...

as far as i remember, you can't record automation to clips - you have to record it to arrange.

the green circle... the x/y controller?

if you want to automate that you need to assign a controller to each of the parameters ( x and y), which you can find underneath the black box which contains the green circle... as far as i know you can not record the movements of it directly, but you can get the same results this other way.

Yes, I'm pretty sure of that too, just confirming what the others said.

Dragging your mouse doesn't create any midi information. You have to make sure there is midi information is going into the track by assigning the x & y parameters to a midi controller. Then the automation can only be recorded on the arrange page.
