Hi thanks for this one !
Could you do make the "Select Active Chain" ? :)
I tried to modify this one:
...But clearly my skills level isn't high enough !
I think, in midi and audio version, it could be very handy to manage CPU when making a live set !
Thanks again ;)

Hello and thanks for your word !

What do you mean by "select active chain" ?
Please give me somes details about functionnality that your are looking for !

Ok for midi version. I'll do it soon.


Hi Olivier !
I mean a max device activating all the devices on the active chain, and desactivating all other device on other chains.
Pretty much like your device but with chains. The link i posted above is a good example but the device is midi only, and there is an issue with the desactivation for every chain above the selected one.

Hi Pierrot2302,
i'll try to do this !


Great !! Thanks a lot !

I'm about to release this auto bypass chain add-on that you are looking for... just have to finish the UI ;-)

you will just have to put it on the left side of your rack and automate or midi control the number of the chain you want to use (all other devices will be bypassed)




Nice ! I can't wait ! :)
Will it work on audio track too ?

Both versions are online now ;-) feel free to test it and tell me if there is something wrong.
