Device Overview

Name/Version: zs Knobbler3 - Auto-Labeling Control Surface 1.1.7
Author: zsteinkamp  
Description: zs Knobbler3 is a Max for Live device + TouchOSC Layout that gives you 32 auto-labeling faders to control the most important parameters in your Live set, regardless of what is selected on the screen.

Demo video:

Simply select a parameter in Live you want to control, then touch a fader on the iPad interface, and the mapping is created! The track, device, and parameter names are shown next to the fader to help you keep track of what is what.

The device also provides a large slider to control the currently selected parameter, sans mouse. Additionally, I rolled in the functionality of my ToggleInput device so you can easily enable/disable recording for the currently selected track. This makes automation overdubs pain-free.

Detailed instructions are available on the device project page.
