The sync seems to be off broken. It seems to go out of sync randomly, but I can easily replicate it by just repeatedly hitting the play button in live.

I'm a max developer but I cannot easily look at the code and fix it myself, because there seems to be a lot of code to make it sync properly, even though it should be able to be accomplished easily via plugsync~ and some mod math

@Panosla Simply put, loading this device onto a track, and recording a new clip in a clipslot of the track the device is loaded onto, doesn't work. It just records. Looking at the code, nothing seems to be even keeping track of the Ableton clock, time signature, or tempo, so I'm not even sure how it's supposed to record a clip of fixed bar length? I'm on the latest version of Ableton and Max.

I've got a similar working function in an unreleased device, so this peaked my interested. However, I drag it onto a track, record a clip, and nothing happens? Doesn't seem to work... or am I missing something?

@Proffett, thanks for your interest & purchasing! I can confirm that duplicating tracks does not preserve mapping for non-takeover mode, it links back to the original. The hackery I had to do to get non-takeover mode to work, and save with the live set, involved storing the ID of the parameter it was mapped to as a parameter itself (which also allows it to mimic the parameter it's mapped to).

Unfortunately, I don't think there's an easy fix. I will definitely update the description of the device with a bug/known issues section to include it though

@hangarsliquides You can use 3 instances of this device on a single track to, for example, MIDI map 6 different track input/outputs to.

@itsBREX This is a story of one man's hard work, perseverance, vision, determination, and sweat. But mostly, his sweat.

@Stromkraft This device will work in arrangement view, yes, though I built this as a session view live looping tool. Loop start/end quantizations - if you mean global quantization, yes this is affected.

Hi there! I slightly modified this device to recognize MIDI CC and pitch bend automation, so I could map those input parameters to dials.

A video of it in action with pitch bend is here:
