Device Overview

Name/Version: -ASK- Meta Macro 8x 1.1
Author: Askondo  
Description: Meta Macro basically looks like an Ableton device rack and resembles its macro control, with a floating view and many convenient functions for Live performance and customization.

Map most parameters in Live to the macros, assign custom curves, create snapshots of the macro dial values for a live performance, and much more!

The Meta Macro device comes with the following key features:

- 8 Macro parameters that can map 2/4/8 parameters(see versions).
- "Locate" button in the edit view for each mapped parameter, for easier navigation of the set
- "Locate" button on the floating view to easily find the Meta Macro device in the Liveset
- User curves for each mapped parameter. Curves can be imported and exported. Quick selector for linear, exponential, and logarithmic curves.
- Integrated floating view system (all my devices use this system) can snap multiple floats and arrange them to your liking in clusters
- Snapshot functionality (for different) and the possibility to only trigger the snapshot on downbeat
- Full Midi mapping capabilities for all important functions (done in device view, not on the floating views due to limitations of Max for Live/Ableton Live)

Please note that there are three versions of the meta macro (capable of mapping 2, 4, or 8 parameters per macro) See the other versions.

Update 1.1.
- Added live.banks for control surface integration (Push, etc)
- Added display of "real" value of the curent parameter instead of 0.-1 to advanced curve editor

Looks rad! How detailed is the curve editor? Is it similar to say the Shaper device in Ableton? Do any of the data values it's mapped to show up on the curve? eg. If Frequency is being mapped, do the Y values on the curve show the frequency or is it always a 0-1 scale?


Hey there, thanks for the kudos!

It's planned to display the current value(of the corresponding parameter at the mapped macro position) for the extended envelope editor in the floating view.

So basically when you move the macro knob you see the translated value.

Unfortunately, it relies on unofficial M4L API calls so it comes with the caveat of printing a lot of warnings in the M4L console.

I'll post an upgrade on gumroad soon.

Great device. Nice work. Only thing I'm missing is the RND button to randomize all the mapped parameters per macro. A button for every macro knob for instance.
