I was really interested to try this, but I can't get it to work. No notes are ever rendered. Has it been tested with Live 11?

Do I need to install Scribbletune for it to work?

1.1 - fixed the issue with the rendering. The device should now be producing melodies as intended.

@robschoen thanks a lot for letting me know! Please download the newly uploaded version.

1.2 - device type updated from "None" to "MIDI". This means that the device can now only be mounted on a midi track before an instrument.

Unfortunately is not working on my Live 11 neither on my 10 version, placed in a midi channel front a VST but is not rendering no matter what I click?

@justix66, Im sorry about the difficulties. Have you downloaded the latest version? If so, then I'm curious to know how are you trying to render a melody, as the plugin should be working properly by now

I downloaded what is available here so should it be the latest? I put your max patch in a midi channel followed by a vst or Live instrument in the same channel and click on render after few adjustment but nothing.. that is also for the Chord I must doing something wrong

Actually I know create a clip ( I thought it would make the clip on his own and notes are created BUt need to understand how to short the clip as it goes really looong

@justix66, unfortunately, the device has a bit of a learning curve. You can find a bit of a guide on how to work with it at . Posting just in case you are not aware of it by now.

If you want to make notes shorter, edit the 'Subdivide x' parameter. The parameter controls the length each 'x' represents.

And thank you for sharing your experience, this is an invaluable feedback for me. In the future, I will probably make a short video tutorial, hopefully it will clear some confusion as to how to use this device.
