I'm not sure if you can. I'm pretty sure Ableton only automates CC parameters and the JX-8P uses SYSEX commands. I believe there are CC->SYSEX converters available that will make it happen. You can also use the Patch Editor by Kiwi Technics, it easily allows you to control your JX-8P with CC commands.

With Live 7, it's impossible. It's only possible in Live 8 with Max for Live, if the envelopes are CC. If they are sysex parameters, you are SOL because sysex is filtered out in Live and not supported.
