Disabling automap for hard-assignment to encoder

Still finding my way. Apologies if I say anything ignorant

I’m working with Daisy Patch now. For what I’m doing, I need a goodly number of repeatable and precise parameters that I can adjust in runtime For this, I’d like to hard-assign params to be controlled from the encoder. Automap is creative but it sort of interferes with this. I’d like to turn it off when I want to.

I understand there’s an ‘automap’ attribute in a .json file (somewhere) associated with the Daisy Patch hardware selection, and that this can be set to ‘false’ rather than true. Where can I find and edit the .json file responsible? Thanks!
