Buffer Shuffler Auto Dice polluting Undo history

Post by biestyboy » Tue Feb 11, 2014 4:05 pm

The subject title pretty much sums it up. If I use the Auto - Dice feature on Buffer Shuffler 2 my undo history gets cluttered with these random changes. Bit of a pain as it means a change I may have done only a few seconds earlier pretty much cannot be undone due to all the dicing thats happened since, rendering Undo useless with this feature enabled. Does anyone know if this can be turned off/filtered out? IMO the undo history should only include changes I've made myself.

Ah, I recently noticed this too, very inconvenient.
Sorry, no solution, just a +1 from me

They had the same problem with m4l's LFO & envelope follover back at version 9.0.
it was fixed in the next beta... but probably they overlooked buffershuffler...

Thanks for the feedback, pleased it's not just me. Think I'll get it logged with Ableton as a fault.

Same here, really a pity, since I just discovered the new one and adore it.
The previous version (Ableton 8, Max 5) was fixable as described here https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/buf ... ndo-steps/, but it didn't manage to figure it out with this version. Can't see the object that generates the changes.
Any advice from someone who's more in-depth familiar with Max would be appreciated.

Is there really still no fix or workaround for this, 2 years later?

No, unless the whole way that M4L works changes... You can't have something that's MIDI Mappable without it writing to the undo history....

If you can live without it being mapped then open the patch to edit, locate the Auto Dice button and change the settings from Automated and Stored to Stored only...

You can then click on it with the mouse...

Cheers
