great. miss such feature in live since long :)
thank you


Perfect, thanks.

Was looking forward to using this.
I have the following problems (using Live 9):

- target effects can be selected in the drop-down list, but no parameters are showing up on any of them in the menu below.

- the "Q" value in the filter can not be changed.

So I haven't been able to modulate anything with this.
Hopefully an easy fix. Looks promising.

Thank you.

I did some research (though I had never tried to make any sort of Max patch before) and was able to find a way to properly get the devices and parameters. You can see an example in this "official sample" .amxd

Given this, you'll be able to select a device (I am using Live 9, also). After spending time looking at the patch, it seems that basically all you'd need to do to get this working properly (aside from using the method in the above to find the proper device id for live.remote~) is to get the min and max value of the selected parameter, and set the scale to these values.

Perhaps somebody with better Max skills can do this. I don't expect it to take too long after this - I just could not figure out at all how to properly get the min and max values for a parameter, though I would have expected this to be an easy API call.
