Any ideas on this? Seems like I can't do a single thing without random parameters of my patches getting altered unintentionally.

Parameter on synth resets when adjusting another?

I have an Alesis Ion hardware synth set up as an External Instrument device on a MIDI channel and am getting a weird behavior when I adjust one of the parameters on an Ion patch. If I change one of the parameters, a different parameter, assuming I've changed it from the patch's default setting, will...

So I'm back to playing with this again. When I was trying to get this to work before, I didn't know that Live straight up didn't support NRPN at all. Now I'm reading a lot about people with NRPN hardware being strictly out of luck. Is that what all this comes down to? And if so, would an NRPN to CC ...

I would love proper tablet support as well. I use my tablet for absolutely everything, save some video games. Having to switch to the mouse for Live is disappointing. It KIND of works now, but seems everything is super sensitive and very hard to control. Dragging in the timeline to zoom specifically.

I just sent an email to support, hopefully it'll actually go somewhere. This thread would probably better belong in the Bugs section, but too late now, unless someone can move it.

Thanks for the list pedx1ng. The only documentation I could find about the 1.06 update was on a few random sites hosting the download:

I tried another experiment. The Sony ACID DAW uses the same style of vector-based automation curves as Live, so I tried automating a few different elements of my Ion in Acid, and it works without a hitch. So I'm thinking this is something unique to Live, especially if Funky Shit has the same problem...

Thanks for the help so far. I experimented with this a bit more today and this is what I found: In Live: With M1 controlling Filter 1 Res, and recording live knob adjustments, automation plays back correctly. However, if I clear the recording automation and attempt to draw my own, playback becomes e...

Something else to note- when Live attempts to play back my CC automation and it becomes erratic, the CPU meter will bounce around like crazy. I saw it go as high as 250% for a second, then back to 6%, then 130%, then back down, and so on. No way is this supposed to be happening.

Post-OS update, CC vs NPRN doesn't seem to make a difference. Strange stuff going on- for a second I was getting the volume control you're talking about in Live, with CC16. After restarting Live and starting a new patch, it went back to erratic playback with resonance control. With CC76, I still get...

Thanks pedx1ng for trying it out as well. I just tried again with CC16 and again got unpredictable results. It does seem to be affecting the resonance, but the note playback is sporadic (sometimes I won't even hear a single thing until I STOP playback, then a few random notes will sound). I haven't ...

Does Prefuse 73 fall into this category?

Automating external synth's CC makes it go crazy

I have an external Alesis Ion on a track via the External Instrument instrument, and all works fine until I try to automate anything. I have it set up so that CC14 controls the resonance of a filter on the Ion, so in the Clip, under Envelopes, I have this: http://sans-concept.com/Boards/live_automat...

Confused about ASIO input numbers

I have an EMU 1820 audio interface. I have two items running into its inputs- 1 mic and 1 synth going into 1L and 1R. In the interface's mixer I have the mic sending to ASIO 1/2 and the synth sending to ASIO 5/6. In Live's input preferences, its showing 1/2 and 3/4 as the available inputs. It does n...
