Device Overview

Name/Version: Smooth Automator 1.0
Author: KBDevices  
Description: Allows to create automations and morphing for Live 11's Variations.
Simply put it left of an Instrument Rack, or MIDI Effect Rack (Audio Effect Rack version also included in the download).

If you encounter problems with the device (macros jumping or misbehaving), simply do a "Hotswap" on the device and replace it with itself, that should fix it.
When re-opening a set the devices should work correctly.

Looks pretty cool

Superbly useful.

oh cool we have API access to that, nice

Fantastic! I was quite disappointed that this is not native behavior. This solves it. Great work!


Very very usefull device.
It seem there is a problem with the morphing, i think it happen when we move the rack or the M4L device, the dial stut.

super duper!

L'objet MIDI fonctionne tr?s bien mais l'audio ne reconnait pas les racks. Mauvaise manip de ma part ou bug ?

Merci de m'aiguiller :)

midi version seems very buggy here (didn't try the audio version)
the device is placed before a rack with 3 variations.
I hit refresh
the 3 variations apperas in the device.
If for example I click several times on a variation in the device each click generate a new variation ?!
Is it a normal behaviour ?
If I am on the variation 1 in the rack, clicking "1" in this device should not change the preset...but it does. and clicking several times changes all the macros values..

strange ?

thank you !

Odd behavior when I have my Ableton Push 2 plugged in. Seems to work fine after I disconnect the Push. I was really excited about this until that happened..

damn, this is a dream device but it is extremely buggy and barely works. bummer.

This in conjunction with the additional 'Smooth Automator' does not work at all now on Ableton Suite 11.1 Build 2022-01-27.
Sad times :(

Anyone know an alternative?
