WOW! Thank you, Dennis! What an incredible device!
awesome tool, would have saved countless clicks in the past! Thank you! :-)
One suggestion: The font looks pretty smeared / non highdpi on my screen, any way to improve this for legibility?
Great job :)
This m4l device is so fantastic! Thanks again for it! :-)
Probably a big ask, but updating it to support Live11 and mpe would be highly appreciated and I would definitely donate or pay for that.

Currently Live shows the warning that the device "is using an older process to modify midi notes. This can lead to a loss of additionalnote data..."
Hi markusschloesser,

Unfortunately, it's not actually possible for me to update this to be completely compatible with Live 11 yet. The "older process" referred to in that warning dialog is the only way to affect the selection of notes. The updated method for working with notes supports MPE, but it doesn't allow note selection to be managed.

As soon as it becomes possible for me to update this, I will!

Thanks very much for replying! :-)
Hi Dennis.

Any update on a Live 11 version? I'm getting some strange behaviour. When 'Auto Update' is on you can't remove newly recorded clips & 'Show Clip After Running' seems to shift focus away from other clips back to the processed clip permanently after running a process.

Thanks, Pat.
Hi Pat,

The Live 11.1 beta was announced today, and I'm working on a version of the device that I thing should solve all of the compatibility issues with Live 11.

If you're testing 11.1 and would like to try out the updated version of the device, please let me know.

Hi folks,

Please use if you're using Live 11.1 or higher.
