Device Details


Name | Version: FXbypass 1.0
Author: asmaros
Device Type: Audio Effect
Description: FXbypass Max for Live Device to bypass effects without deactivating them.
Utility Device Created for mixing purposes for Ableton Live 10 / 11.

Requires max for live(included in Live suite) & Ableton Live 10.0.1 or later

It is tiny, simple and light weight but very useful.

It allows you to AB/bypass effects without deactivating them for two simple reasons:

Deactivating and reactivating all effects at once can cause a massive jump on CPU which is uncomfortable!
Deactivating and reactivating all effects can mess with their automations (ON/OFF device automation) you'll have to re-enable automations in Live each time.
Just click on the main “FX ON” button and it will audition the Dry signal and mute Sends at the same time without deactivating any effect.

You can listen to the Dry signal only without Muting the Sends

This Package comes with two devices "FXbypass" that goes to each track and "FXGlobal" (one instance only) that goes to the Master track to control all instances of FXbypass.
