Hello

i have buy your device and several bug in it

browse you track with up and down change parameter of the track (level of track)

And the renaming doesn't work for all the track ...

Thanks

working on it...there be a bug fix release this week. stay alert in your email. thank you for the help.

Check your email for the updates. Thank you for your support!

Thanks I try this soon on my project and give you a feedback in quite few days

Thanks for your work

Unfortunately the 3.1 update is still buggy and causes my Ableton sessions to crash. It seems there are still lots of bugs to iron out.

1. Clicking a parameter in the Spectr window while in MIDI CC mapping mode does not register.
2. After several attempts at mapping, Ableton crashes. Removing Spectr from my template set file fixes the issue and Ableton works normally.
3. Clicking the Lock icon in the bottom right corner causes the Spectr window to jump its position so that its top left corner is anchored to where the bottom right corner previously was. This makes it very difficult to Lock the Spectr window where you want it.

This is a very promising Max For Live device, but it's definitely still a beta.

hello, thank you for your feedback.

In this version I remove the ability to map the parameters because it messes with the undo history of ableton. The only button you can map it is the open/close button.

With the lock button try to do this (if you want to stay open all the time/ or you don't like the title bar ) :
1. Map the open button (midi or key)
2. Click the lock.
3. click the key that you mapped.
(note : opens according to mouse position)

Hope it helps :)


thank you diff devices.
I had a little issue in the 3.0 version, but with the 3.1 so far so good. no issues at all. I miss the parameters but nothing that I can't do directly in ableton.
keep up!

thank you! I'm trying to get a lot more fixes and new features soon. stay tuned.

Though the first few releases have had bugs, I want to thank Hugo for working quickly to fix many of the issues users have been pointing out.

This is a developer who listens to feedback and is actively working to improve the stability and functionality of this device. If you're unsure about purchasing based on the previous comments in this thread, I would now encourage you to give it a try. The stability has been improving quite a bit ?and if you do run into any issues, shoot Hugo a message.

That said, the

Initially I was loving this device as it's been able to replace 3-4 other devices I had in my template which were only capable of controlling one specific feature out of the multiple features that are covered here.

I have had no CPU issues, crashes or other bugs pop-up so far which is very impressive and also very much appreciated from my point of view. The ability to control send volumes without ever having to unhide the send knobs is a bit of a game-changer for mixing quite honestly!

However, there's only one issue I have - and unfortunately it's a big one which I see pop-up over and over again with various Max4Live devices - the Undo History.

Whenever I change tracks the last task I have done in the DAW vanishes in the undo history. "Undo Change" instead ominously appears as the only undo option. Being unable to (easily) recover an undo step when I drop a clip in the wrong place or accidentally delete something is just too important to sacrifice in favour of using this handy device. If there is any way you can solve this issue, I'd be eternally grateful?

I know it's possible to solve as "Track Flow" had the same problem but the developer fixed it in the updates, plus "Clip Gain", which I used previous to purchasing this device, also doesn't swamp the undo history with arbitrary "Undo Change" steps.

Hoping you can help?

Device does not work with Live v11.2.

Parameters are un-mappable in MIDI mode. Clicking a parameter and moving a MIDI CC does nothing.
