Author: zsteinkamp  
Description: Allows you to map a single MIDI controller that always controls whatever parameter is currently selected in the Live set.

This lets you just click a param anywhere in any track with the mouse, then use a consistent, physical, high-fidelity controller to make adjustments.

Hi, thanks for your work.

This is a great idea & a feature that should be native really.

Is there a way you can assign it to a an audio unit / vst's parameter by clicking on a knob in its interface rather than just live / max knobs?

I understand you can you can assign plugin parameters to a plugins live panel and do it from there but that seems to be against the point.

If it's not in Live's API maybe there a way to have a plugin automatically assign a parameter to it's Live panel so your device can read it from there?

Cheers! P

Hey P -- This bugs me too. I've taken to giving some attention to the live panel configuration for my 3rd party VSTs so I can easily find the parameters I automate most. Make sure you "Save as Default Configuration" after rearranging or adding params.

I'd love to hear if others have a solution to this.

Hello zsteinkamp,

this sounds like a really helpful device!
It would have saved me a lot of time setting up my Ableton Controller on TouchOSC. Unfortunatly I am done with it so far already, having done it all manually...
But I have another question, since I presume you are into LUA scripting for TouchOSC as well: there is a little thing that I would realize in my setup which probably demands some scripting what I am not capable of.

Hence my question if you could consider doing a little custom scrpit for me. Of course I would be reades to pay something for th effort.


Hi Gert -- I'd be happy to help you figure something out, but I'm not really into doing coding work for money. I already do that for my full time job. But I'm happy to hear what you're trying to accomplish and give some tips for how to accomplish it! Email me at
