Is there a way to control automation using a controller? For example an LFO controller could control volume volume levels or a lowpass filter's frequency (which other can be done in programs like LMMS and Renoise). Is there a way to currently do this / will this be available in Ardour 3? Thanks.

There is no LFO in Ardour currently no. You could easily have an external program use an LFO to transmit OSC or MIDI and control Ardour like that however.

Well I would imagine writing a simple patch in PureData would work. This is not generally something I do however, as it is fairly simple to draw in automation as well to emulate an LFO as well.
