When I use this device twice or more on the same project and automate the solo function of different tracks (but with this same device of course), it plays and works very well inside the project, but when I go to export the master file, the automation disappear lol simply there is no automation, but the automation IS there and working. Only the mastered .wav file does not have the automations. I tried putting the device in the master track and choosing each track I want to automate inside the actual master track instead of using the track themselves. Do not work as well. I searched on google and found out that if I use a max 4 live device twice or more and try to automate the automation disappears. So I guess, it's not your fault since the device is working well. Can you give me a tip to make this work?

This is by FAR my most used MaxForLive device. The above commented pretochines hit the nail on the head for it's Achilles heel. You can't use two instances of this device which is a real shame and limits my use case. I will thank you to Infiniti and beyond if you can fix this.
