Re: Can't get Audio Realism ABL3 to load midi notes into arrang

You can export patterns as MIDI files from the ABL3 menu. Then just drag those MIDI files onto a track. And don't forget to set ABL3 to note mode.

Re: Max & Push coders: PLEASE HELP ME I AM PULLING MY HAIR OUT

Alright, I'll be wrong. Been doing it since Live 4 (2004), but whatever.
When you assign an endless encoder with LED rings and change something with the mouse, those LED rings get updated by magic I suppose.
And soft-takeover should be impossible, despite it being a feature of Live.

Re: Cross-Platform SysEx Externals (& unrestricted MIDI in/out)

Did these objects ever get an update? I quit using them after unreliable sysex messages, though these were long ones. Like 15000+ messages from an Elektron patch.

Re: Cannot UNDO!!!! Only thing in undo is "Change Voice 1 Level"

I was having much the same problem, but with a different item in the undo list. I found the problem - a Max for Live plugin that's recording every time it triggers. I've got it on several tracks, which means it's as many as a hundred events every second the transport is running. I found a video tal...

Re: Push 2 without Max for Live-- worth it?

There are no functions for Push 2 that are unique to MFL. If anything, combining Push 2 and MFL is a bit of a hassle.

Re: Max & Push coders: PLEASE HELP ME I AM PULLING MY HAIR OUT

- Make 4 (audio or MIDI) racks. (Each device is a bank of 8 ) - Use Live's MIDI Learn to assign the CC's to unmapped Macro's. - Make sure Remote Out is activated in the MIDI preferences Now you can control those Racks from Push, while the mapped CC's are being sent out to the remote output you sele...

Re: With MAX integrated into Live 10, Do we keep previous MAX?

On my MacOS / Applications folder, I see MAX (dated Mar 1, 2017). When I execute it, I see version 7.3.3. And it's offering for me to download v7.3.5. Do I need this stand alone version of Max installed on my machine since I now have Ableton Live 10? Its Max 8 that is included in Live 10. You still...

Re: Display stuff on Push Screen

I am wondering how much you can customize Push's screen with M4L. In fact I appear to don't like the Push workflow at all but I am quite attracted to it's ability to display informations and graphs. So I could consider it (back) just for creating my own live performance controller/display. How is t...

Re: Am I correct in thinking Info-text is not reachable via API?

You'd still need to mouse over the preset though.
How about a live.menu hooked up to a [coll @embed 1]?
The live.menu can hold the titles/cue-names and the coll can print the info into the max window or wherever. You can automate the live.menu to show what you need when you need it.

Re: issues with ableton live 8 max 5 and maxforlive

You're using the latest OSX with software that existed about a decade earlier. Neither Live 8 nor Max 5 will ever be optimised to run on High Sierra. The biggest reason being that both applications moved away from 32-bit. A lot of the externals you have in Max 5 will likely be 32-bit. Running 32-bit...

Re: Get last modified parameter

[live.path live_set view selected_parameter] will show the last selected parameter and only if it has been selected in the Live GUI. You'd need to monitor all parameters on all devices to know if a parameter was adjusted from its own GUI. But that'll only work for the exposed parameters which are l...
