If you remove the band, the motor is no longer connected to the pot and the volume won't change - it stays where you set it with the mouse/snapshots/automix.

Well, that might be true, but itīs not the motor that is the problem, itīs the fader.
If you got a "nervous and jumpy" fader it will still jump around ( watch on VGA in MIXER VIEW, track mix ) and the volume will fluctuate randomly ....
If I still had my "bad" fader board in my VS I could have made a video to show you, but itīs now "collecting dust" on my shelf ..... ( for spare parts )
All my VSīs is working perfect at the moment .... ( Touch wood )
