Re-enable automation keeps turning on and off in arrangement

Post by m.nash » Thu Oct 02, 2014 9:58 pm

Anyone know how to fix this?

Disable/Re-enable Automation button turns on and off all the time for me. It happens in the arrangement view. Anyone experience this and know the cause/solution?

It happened to me for a while.

- Do you have any external scripts running (E.g. Selected Track Control)

- Does it happen with /without Max for Live? (Some M4L advices will send automation change messages to Live without you knowing)

- What version of Live are you running?

Have you added time changes to the arrangement, and are you "breaking" those by changing time via session?

Also - if a plugin or effect sends a parameter change, it can override the automation (and then automation turns itself off).

just in case someone stumble upon this problem again. it happened to me when I mapped one of the controls inside Kontakt via right click (Learn Midi #CC Automation). I "unlearned" the button and it didn't happen again.

Did the trick for me. Ghost assignments when autolearn is on in a studio full of bass. My midi keyboard just ghosted an assignment.
