I'd like to know if I could create another mode where the m4l device autodetects the number of plugins, then update the chain automatically (one more plugin = one more chain) and then handle automatic activation/desactivation when a chain is selected (instrument is activated on the selected chain).
Thanks for help

sorry I didn't realized this was already implemented...

Great thing! I was waiting for this. But one question: is there a possibility to use you plug with an AUDIO effect rack? I have one instrument track and i use multitimbral -- i want to activate your chain selection on my kick, snare, hh etc which own to some audio tracks... . Thanks for your answer.

hi Barnes

Thank to your interest

remenber Chain selector value can olso recall
instead of Rigth Clip Name Number

Hi! this script is very amazing !

but in Live 10 the number of the new clip name its on the RIGHT SIDE (ex: Piano 24), so when I press record on Session View it auto-changes the preset.

Currently works only to play, and record on Arrangement View.

Can you please fix that? I tried myself but I failed miserably :(


i am no time to update for live 10 and 11

coming soon sorry
