Is it possible in FL Studio 12 create a chain of automation like so:

  1. Parametric EQ2's knob is being controlled by some external LFO source
  2. This knob controls another knob in the same plugin instance

or like so:

  1. Parametric EQ2's knob is being controlled by some external LFO source
  2. This knob controls another knob in different iVST/VST plugin like WaveSharper or something else

A year and a half late but here's what you can do (hoping it is indeed what you asked for):

  • Automate your first knob as usual.
  • Right-click the second knob that you want to have follow the same automation.
  • Select Link to controller.
  • Under the Internal controller section, in the drop down, find the automation you created for the first knob.
  • Uncheck Remove conflicts (or the first knob will be unlinked from its automation).
  • Accept.

Now both knobs are following the same automation.
If you wish to link a same knob to more than one automation in the same way:

  • Right-click your knob and Link to controller again
  • Another drop down made its appearance at the top of the dialog. It should say Link 1 or something similar. Select New Link.
  • Select another automation from the Internal controller drop down (and don't forget to uncheck Remove conflicts)

Hope that helps. :)

Also, useful piece of info in case you don't know: when 3rd-party VST knobs are right-clicked, they will show a contextual menu defined by the VST, not FL Studio's usual menu. In order to find the Create automation clip option:

  • Tweak the knob you wish to automate
  • Navigate to FL Studio's Tool menu (top-left of the screen)
  • Last tweaked > Create automation clip

This also works for Link to controller and any other option you'd expect to find in FL Studio's contextual menu.
