This is great! Thank you. Going to give this a go today.

Is it intended behavior that the only subgenre I get suggested is Italian Aquacrunk?

No, the sub-genre should change every time you click 'generate'.

Is it just the sub-genre that doesn't change?

What version of Ableton Live are you using?

I'd like to be able to replicate this error myself to see what the problem is...


Yes, everything else changes except the subgenre, which is always Italian Aquacrunk (even after restarting Live).

Live 10.1.7
Mac OS Mojave 10.14.3
Macbook Pro Retina 13-inch Late 2013

I just gave it to a colleague to test on his Macbook Pro and it's working for him, so I guess it's only me!


Yeah, it's odd that it's working for your colleague and not you. There's no reason I can think of why it shouldn't be working and this is the only report I've had of this problem.

It's as if there's a connection missing between the 'generate' button and the code that generates the sub-genre ('Italian Aquacrunk' is what the sub-genre field is already populated with before the device starts and it automatically generates a new one).

Again though, I can't think why this connection would be broken, just on one machine and not another.

I guess you've already tried this, but have you downloaded the device again?

Just so I can check, would you be able to post a screen grab of the device opened up in Edit Mode in Max4Live? If you're not sure how to do this though, don't worry! I'll give it some more thought in any case.

@nozric - re-downloading device did the trick! weird. thanks for the awesome support!

@flis - Excellent! Pleased to hear it's working for you now :)

Although I doubt I can do all the genre's at all I want to check this out. it's a great idea of a device for the elites and curious.
