Device Overview

Name/Version: Live Master Fader 1.0
Author: drumstix  
Description: Ever wanted to have Live's master fader as a popup? Here you go!

Why is this device ultra cool:

* Uses Live.Gain~ so looks identical to Live's native master fader.
* Very precise readout: Both peak level as wel as current fader level.
* Control the master fader just like the native one.

And what makes this device unique:
The fader level is exactly the dB value that Live reports as well! This was a real tough nut to crack as Live's reported dB is notoriously difficult to get to. From +6dB down to -18dB this Max device reports exactly the same dB level. Below that there's sometimes a neglectable 0.1dB level difference...

Getting the device to control the fader level identical to the native master fader was an headache as well. But it came out pretty nice :-)

Are you interested in how to convert from M4L mixer_device api (value 0. ~ 1.) into dB please reference this device. It contains my convertLiveFaderTodB and convertdBToLiveFader patchers. Feel free to use and please attribute me.

Nice one, the topic was a tough nut indeed !

thank you very much!! I would also love to have a surround master channel, 4.0,5.1,6.1,7.1 ...

Good effort on converting the 0-1 value to a dB value, not an easy task. Interested to see how you did it.

This is awesome! thank you. Im wondering if there is a way to have it sit in the device rack as well as/ or instead of being a popup?

Woohoo - game changer - thank you!!
