Just downloaded Mulab to check it out. Coming from FL studio here.

I see ghost copying only works for MIDI parts but not for automation parts, why?

Also, automation curves are pretty unusable. The "exponential" curve is not symmetrical around the 45° line, please download the FL Studio demo, FL's implementation is spot-on. Here's a comparison between the two. The automation curve in FL can be a lot smoother. If anyone here knows how I can draw a similar curve in MuLab, I'd like to know. I've tried but couldn't.

The problem is that the vertical part of each curve segment is tangent to the vertical axis, while the horizontal segment is always at an angle. Seriously, try FL Studio because they have got this right.

PS: It looks like the "symmetric" curve type in MuLab is similar to the FL studio curve type, but for some reason curve tension can only be adjusted in discrete steps rather than gradually, and I don't see how that could be of use to anyone.

It's on the wishlist.

Not sure why you made such assymetrical curve and then also zoomed in the screenshot that much, that looks less good. It surely is not a true comparison between the curves in MuLab and Fls, imho.

You do know that MuLab comes with a rich collection of curve types, do you?
Pls see https://www.mutools.com/info/docs/common/curves.html

To answer your question: You can for example use the "Exponential 2" type with value 6.
This gives you this curve:

Another option is to use the Sine Q4Q1 curves, that's the most smooth transition that exists.

In the above mentioned doc page there also is a link to the envelop editor, but i also include that direct link here: https://www.mutools.com/info/docs/commo ... ditor.html

Hope this helps. And if u have additional questions about this, just ask.
