Device Overview

Name/Version: Comping Takes 2.1.1
Author: MessinkiMusic  
Description: 2.1 UPDATE
Fixed a bug that meant when a live set was loaded with this device deactivated, it would still function.

A Max for Live device to organise the recording and listening to of different takes in a group

Place device on a group track. When a track inside the group is selected, all other tracks will be muted. With record arm enabled on a track in the group, the selected track will also be the only armed track in the group.

Link multiple devices together by giving them the same name and the groups will work together. E.g, If the first track in one group is selected or armed, then so will the first track in all other groups with the device that share the same name.

While Ableton is recording, all functionality is paused, so that selecting a track in the middle of recording will not ruin the recording.

Fantastic, MessinkiMusic!
You did it! Great comping tool and very elegant group track ! one feature we all wanted for age!
Thank you so much!
Next step would be, in all group sharing the same name device, to link other actions, like add a track, delete a track, copy a track.
And after that, another step would be the ability to create and select a new track in every armed group when rerecording.
Another idea would be the ability to link editing between groups. But I don't know if Max4live would allow that.

Thanks for the linked editing between groups update!

One question / suggestion tho - what do you think about making it so if two tracks share the same name in different groups say with the same identifier - i.e. vox [take_01] - those will me muted / unmuted together, rather than having it just be first track linked with first track, second with second, etc.?
