Hi kissysellout ! What did you think of this version? did you find any error?
If anyone found something please tell me!

Hi everi
I am going to do some tutorials soon .. But tell me, choose at the moment to record an external instrument and be able to decide quickly if we want audio or midi, isn't it great? For what they do not understand it is like a living Template, they will be able to have everything quickly, so we can concentrate on the only thing that matters, create!
Cheers to all!

Wow! Amazing ! The Best shortcut!

Hi Monty79!
yeah !! thanks !!!!!

Yup, just checking in to update my feedback for you mate - and again, BRAVO! You have indeed totally solved the undo history problem.

The only other feature I would comment on is the "Hi!" text auto-fill setting you have included.

Ideally I would prefer to leave the selected track's name as it was before I applied the Track Flow 1.1 change - and I have noticed that IF you erase the "track name" box manually in the session before using the device, then the device does this correctly. However, if I open my template project (which already has 34 instances of the device pre-programmed in a muted MIDI track), any Track Flow 1.1 devices that have no name written in the text box automatically replace the empty text box (and therefore the selected track's name) with "Hi!".

A way I have managed to get around this feature is to write "###--->[Destination Track Name]" in all of the Track Flow devices. For example, this means a new track named "17 MIDI" gets changed to be "017--->Synths" when I use the shortcut button. This is perfectly fine, and I often find it helpful to change the colour of the selected track to the colour of the destination bus anyway, so this method avoids confusion about where a track is routed to - but it would still be nice to have the option of not changing a track's name when using the devices pre-programmed in my template?

One more thing, I have noticed that if I group a MIDI track after creating it, and then use the "change Audio" option, I can route the MIDI track to an output bus using the same shortcut button I'd use for a new Audio Track (this saves having to create 2 x device instances for each output bus depending on whether I want to send an Audio Track or a MIDI Track). The only slight issue, is that by changing the destination of the group containing the MIDI track, the "Record" button is automatically disabled (meaning I have to re-arm the MIDI track again). I don't quite understand why this is happening, since it happens even if I erase the "Input" box on the Track Flow device or select "Off" for the Audio "change" command.

That's a very small thing though, and fixing the "Hi!" text would essentially make this device PERFECT for it's intended purpose.

Thanks for the first update, very impressed by this device, it's really incredibly useful! : )

Hi, friend! First of all, thank you for taking the time to write to me!
You are the ideal user! Great!
I just did the update! if I could see it before !!LOL!
I will fix everything as before!
The name box, I would think that if you delete the "hi" from max and save it, it would work ... but I'm going to try it.

The group and the arm, it is because you are standing in a group that does not have an in off arm, and what the trackflow does is always unarm everything to activate in the new one, but it could solve it that it does not arm when you are in a group!

I will fix it!
Thank you!!! I had missed this !!!
hug friend!

Dude!? I truly am BEYOND IMPRESSED?!?!

You've solved everything!? ...EVERY. THING.

Listen, I possess thousands of VST plug-ins and hundreds of Max4Live devices, but it's honestly rare for me to commend an audio plug-in as much as I am here - this is probably the best M4L plug-in I've ever found... by quite a wide margin!

It's not just the functionality either, these devices seem to use less than 1% of my CPU resources (when using the MIDI version, ofcourse), and even that is just a guess, because I haven't noticed any rise in my CPU usage whatsoever - and I have 45 (FORTY-FIVE!?!) of these devices pre-loaded in my Ableton mixing template?! Even my M4L VU meter uses more CPU than this?!

I mean, it was a bit of tough pill to swallow knowing that - since you uploaded version 1.2 and version 1.3 the same day - I've had to re-map and program all 45 of my template devices twice today lol - but I'm so happy I found this plug-in that I really couldn't care less haha

Anyway, big respect for putting so much effort and attention to detail into this device, it's absolutely superb : )

hahaha!! you killed me! Thanks for all these nice words!
Hug friend!!!!

hi @kissysellout ! as a huge fan of TrackFlow just wanted to add a little info. I set up my default template w TrackFlow and when I delete the old versions + reopen live + replace missing amxd with the new versions -> no need to remap anything.

Ey Discoparadis!
Good tip! I am observing that there are many ideas of uses and also ideas of new functions ... what do you think if we make a forum? Facebook or discord?

hi Juan! this is the most amazing utility device Ive ever used for Live. thanks for making a dream come true!
glad to see you're so active and keep us updated!
just a little feedback - it doesnt work on 11.1b6 if you run in native silicone mode but works under rosetta.
I would def join a forum etc but would appreciate a privacy friendly way (: I dont do facebookgroup + discord (: but thats just me

Hi discoparadis!
Thanks for all the beautiful words you say! Haha!
With the beta versions, I would wait a bit for the final to come out ... now I'm at 11.011 and it works fine.
Regarding the forums, I don't like them either, but I think it could be useful for many friends! Cheers !!!

Hi discoparadis!
I was researching a bit of 11.1 with M1 and Yes, I will have to do an update to make it work well!
Thanks for advising! I had not understood!
Juan cruz

hi Juan!
my forum suggestion would be a reddit thread. seems like there'r lots of live users active on reddit. -ableton -abletonracks -maxforlive etc
Im glad to hear you found out whats causing compatibility issues. by the way, beta 11.1.6 is fire! its fast + stable. but there'r some issues with m4l devices as expected. I think we should all be patient and wait for some bug fixes which is totally ok
ex. you cant run convolution reverb pro under native silicon. closing live + opening under rosetta fixes it for now.

discoparadis :
I am going to think about it about the forum, but I would like to know opinions of new functions and I see that there are people who do not understand it, then I like to do some tutorials, but I am out of time.
Here is the info of the m1:
Thanks !!

if its ok for you Ill send the link and ask some friends to make a video + review Track Flow. most of them have around 500k viewers in youtube, so this could be helpful.
and imho its not so clear how Track Flow could be used. it'd be great to add that you can assign any midi controller [knob pad key] or ANY KEY on your keyboard - just to create a track with the devices loaded by pressing that key. maybe you could add that to the description here.its possible some people dont use hardware setup + think they couldnt make use out of this amazing device.
I was using clyphx + my own scripts [also a dev] for my setup. until you shared Track Flow (: this thing is just so powerful.
let me know if I can help anyway

Hi, friend!!
Yes! everything you say would be spectacular!
With the reddit forum I was banned yesterday, for sharing the link (discarded!)
Anything you can help would be great, this is not for money .. I just think we need more ways of working!
Now I add in the description what you say!
Thanks !!!!!!
