Description: Hi,
this is my first Max4Live patch ever, so please don't be too hard ;)

I wanted to use my Joystick via the HI Object.

To get this patch work you first have to scolldown the items UMenu on the left and look for your joystick, then make a bang. If anybody has ideas how it could work without the bang and how Ableton could "remember" the choice, tell me !
Every time you open the patch you have to look again for the Joystick, kinda sucks ...

I don't know how this works with other Joysticks, I own a Logitech Attack 3, but it should be easy to change it for your needs.

Have fun !!!

If you have a live.number in the device it's settings are saved when you save a set and close it...

Have it' being fed by the umenu going through a set $1 message and then feed it back into the umenu....

Attach a loadbang to a outputvalue message and on startup the previous saved number should fire into the umenu...


hey S4racen,

thank you for your answer.

I followed your advice and included a live.numbox. now the choosen hi input seems to be stored.
I uploaded a new version with that included.
