Hi Moss,
I use your track controller and would need the following:
Have an integer switch the track ID number instead of the selected track defining this ID. Where in the code would that be done?

thank you for this very useful device, a editable version would be nice.

Updated to confirm to Ableton coding standards.

> a editable version would be nice.

It is editable. Just select "Unfreeze device".

> Have an integer switch the track ID number instead

Send your integer to the "prepend selectAndRecordTrack" box. This is where the 8 buttons are connected to.

I may be missing something really obvious becasue I'm super new to m4l but the download link on your site is to a zip file that just contains a .js file whereas the others are .amxd files.
Where do I find the device file (or what do I do with the js file?) - this device looks like exactly what I need for a starting point so would be very grateful if you could help me out


I have the same problem as Tim, the download contains a .js file and nothing else, is this right?



Great gear, but same request, no amxd file on your web site...

I fixed the download file.
