Device Overview

Name/Version: Kapture 2.0.4
Author: Liine  
Description: Kapture was designed as a "preset manager for the whole of Ableton Live," and allows you to take a snapshot of the state of your Set and save it as a Kapture preset.

You can then select one of your presets from the drop-down list to instantly recall the state of an entire Live Set. Although Kapture was built for the stage, it can also be used in the studio to, for example, quickly compare multiple versions of a mix.

Pretty neat but it doesn't work for parameters within drum/instrument racks. No doubt due to limitations in the LiveAPI

FUCK YOU ABLETONS update .Why i need 8.2.2 Ableton. i have 8.1.3. version very stable and why is ALP............ i have more saves and i cant update. why is not amxd file.

Its just FREE or not Why i update Ableton .why i update M4L. Its free Library. Not Ableton Fuck off Style.

Its very super, nice kapture .... but why not amxd file. ALP ...who need .Alp.... ???????? who need alp.... ??????

This is a great device, but I was planning in using the presets as clips as described in the video. I?m experiencing a huge latency, is that how it?s suppose to be or am I missing something?
Works great, but it?s this latency thats bugging me.

Anyone with the same experience?


oh no...

doesnt work with the operator. i build a similar device and had the same problem. very pity.

Great Idea, but it's lagging makes it un-usable for me.
Tried it with a 35% CPU heavy set (Quad Q6600 CPU), and between klicking on recall and the changings of the settings, it takes 1-2 seconds...
anyone else has this experience?

You can't use it? You are unhappy to have the opportunity to do something thanks a "gift" - please create it and share it for free I'll be happy to receive your own creation - to read so infantile insults here is sincerely unacceptable - Please go on facebook to use your energy in the right place - wouhaaa?.PS maybe to use a pencil and a small piece of paper?...

I 've been working for long on this kind of device.
I have done something simple, reliable, and fast. It's called bongobrain, it is here :

This is a game changer. My band have been trying to figure out a way of doing this for ages. Not sure how well it works in practice.

Same problem MIO but a work round is to just change the settings before each track. Even being able to do that is a massive step forward.


Is it possible to change VST/AU plugin preset with this one ?
If I tested correctly this feature can save only Ableton variables not all knobs on the synthesizer.

I've been trying to get the MIDI track automation of changes to presets happening in the LIVE song that Plastikman provides with the download and I can't get it to work. I have to click on the master device popup to select the preset. I really want to be able to use LIVE in a set with my hands free to do other things. This device would seem ideal, but only if I can get clicks on MIDI tracks to change presets.

This device could be awesome, but it's just incredibly slow. To put out a personally satisfying show, I, and I'm sure I'm far from alone, need a much bigger set than this device allows. But keep up the r & d and this thing would be amazing!

Oh yeah thanks a lot !! very very very usefull for me !!!

May I request a feature ?

Just a "Replace" button...
so just 1 action, instead of :
1 Kapture new config
2 erase the old one
3 rename the new one with exactly same spelling

Thanks a lot !

cannot get it to recall devices in live 9.

Looks like the source code is entact and not obfuscated. Considering resurrecting this. Another Alternative to this is pptc but it is much more complicated. I like the simplicity of this one.

Do you plan to make fader morphing from one state to another as possible with clyph x?

Does not appear to work at all in Live 10. I do multiple Kaptures, then switch between them, the resultant kapture does no reset the parameters.
Easy to reproduce. I filed with Ableton 10 beta program too.
