Moog Delay 500 automation

Hi, as I did not find a dedicated Moog Delay 500 thread I post my question here. Sorry to be in the wrong place if it's the case. I would like to know if it is possible to automate some parameters of the moog delay 500 that are not present in the VST window. I such I would talk about "Dry/Wet", "Drive" and "Output". Those are physical buttons of the 500 Delay but are not in the VST Panel. I need to automate this in my track and I don't know how then.
Any Idea ?

The Drive/Output/Mix controls are fully analog parameters. The unit simply did not sound as good when those parameters were automatable, so we omitted them. The solution is to set the Drive and Output controls at an optimal level. You can then use sends in your DAW sessions (which are recallable) in order to hit the input of the unit at whatever level you prefer. In the case of aux sends, you would leave the mix at 100% wet and blend it with the original sound.

You can use the 500 Delay on a hardware inserts in your sessions as well, and it will absolutely enhance the sound of the source even with the Mix completely dry.

Here is an interview with Producer/Engineer Andrew Scheps talking about using the unit, and how he's automating the inputs:
