I am trying to do a (control loop) simulation with laplace devices.
In these devices you can use equations to define its behaviour.
I would like to enter values in these equations by means of the .param simulator control.
However, this makes the simulator abort with a syntax error.

When I look at the generated spice netlist, I see that the .param name is copied within the quotes and not replaced by the actual value

.subckt $$LaplaceLAP2 INP OUTP
A1 INP OUTP Laplace
.model Laplace s_xfer laplace="{Kdc}/(12*s+1)" denormalized_freq=1

Is there any way to make this work ?

the Pulsonix Spice Manual states that the Laplace model can only work with numerical constants like 1.234. Parameters are not mentioned, so i assume they are just not supported there.
