Be careful with the terminology here -- MIDI CCs aren't being used at
all with this kind of plugin automation. Ardour is sending values to the
LV2 control ports on the synth plugin, without using MIDI at all. That's
why the same technique works for automating parameters on effects
plugins that have no MIDI ports (in both Ardour 3 and Ardour 2).
Ardour 3 will support MIDI CC automation, too, and that will be very
handy for external synths, but for plugins, I think plugin automation is
the way to go.
That said, I'm not sure why you're having trouble with this -- it
definitely should work. I know Paul Davis mentioned some issues with
automation in the alpha 8 release notes, so that may be related.
Hopefully you'll have more luck with the next alpha.
If you want to make sure your automation value are actually being
applied, you can check visually by leaving the plugin UI open while you
play your track. You should see the parameter value change as the track
plays; in this case, you'd see the Cutoff knob turning itself.
