2 Questions: ShowDeviceSlots and multi Midi editing

Post by nicogrubert » Thu Aug 28, 2014 9:12 am

Hi there

I got 2 questions:

1)
I have enabled the secret option "ShowDeviceSlots" in "Options.txt" to show the names of all devices in a channel when in session view.
See this pic:

Good idea (this should be enabled by default I think). However, why is it not possible to double click on the device name to open the device like it is common in every other DAW? Did I miss something?


2)
While editing a midi notes, is it possible to see midi notes of other tracks in the same window? Bitwig, Reaper and Presonus got this very helpful feature but I could not find out, if this is possible in Live 9.

Thanks in advance
Nico

1:
No, because they never finished the programming of it. That's why they left it as an option.txt only thing.
Why?! Who knows

2: No can do (except somewhat in Arrangement)
