recording automation

Apologies if this seems obvious, but I still feel like a noob with Live, despite having used Max for quite a while. What’s the best way to go about recording automation curves from Max For Live devices? Specifically, let’s say I’m sending data to M4L.api.DeviceParameterRemote or something similar and want to record the curves in MIDI clips to save and apply to multiple parameters. I’ve tried approaching this from several angles, but still am having trouble wrapping my head around how live handles this.

Live can record automation only on tracks, not clips.

I found a way to record automation to clips by using the IAC driver, but I can’t figure out how to get my device to send MIDI CC messages. Any help?

The device type must be a “MIDI effect”.
Then you can use [ctlout] for sending CC through the track output.
