I am very new to able and I'm using Ableton Live 9 Lite. I have eight tracks and as I'm mixing I notice that some of the levels of my tracks have a little red dot on them (as do my reverb and delay sends). I think this might have something to do with clipping but I'm not sure.

The problem comes in when these levels will randomly turn themselves up. I don't know why they are doing that and how to turn it off?

Has anyone experienced this before? Image of the red dots below:

This means that you have enabled automation, very likely because you recorded with automation enabled. If you right-click on the control you can choose "Delete Automation" to remove the automation entirely.
