Good times!
Good times indeed! It beggars belief that Avid has never bothered to address this issue especially considering their history of making great control surfaces.

Since working with the Pro Control I have trained myself to anticipate the automation moves and make them a little bit early in sessions with high sample delay. It is a bit of a pain though and not exactly intuitive.

The other thing I do is punch in automation over a selection which is a good workaround when you need fast moves.
