Automation is where you record any knob tweaks you make during the playback
of a song or pattern.  Basic example might be where you fade in one
instrument over a few bars. Once you've recorded it, it will happen
automatically every time you play it back in future.

Save a new version of one of your songs. Open the playlist. If track 9 is
not called "main automation" (with a play square at bar one)make it so. Then
switch to song mode, select pattern 9, press record and twiddle a few knobs
& sliders whilst its playing. Stop recording and play it back again - you
should see all the changes you made happening automatically.

Theres a bit more to it than that, but that should be enough to get you
started. Yes, it is pretty crucial, as you can automate just about anything.

Have fun

Now here is where I look like a total fool .... to understand what you've
just written, pls could you explain what automation is!? Thanks for the
detail though which I'm sure will be perfectly obvious once I understand
what it is ...
