Yes - it is the limit for scripted control surfaces.

It's proving a limitation for me since I have
- Push
- Mackie Control Extender
- Mackie Control Extender
- Mackie Control (master unit)
- TouchAble
- BCR2000

That's all six slots gone right there!

I now want to add Selected Track Control ( but there are no further slots available.
; /

Dear Abletons, it would be great if you could address this in a forthcoming update.
I can't be the only one finding this to be limitation.


-Live10.1 |Push2|Maschinemk2|KeyLab61|LaunchPad|MCUpro|MCExt|MCExt|iPad2|TouchABLE2
-Mac Pro 5.1 (dual hex core Xeon 3.46gHz, 28Gb RAM) running MacOS 10.13.6
-Universal Audio Apollo Quad (firewire)

Tested the malstroem map yesterday which worked fine so far. It has 32 controls atm (will hopefully be 64 in the end) and when i change a patch in Reason all controls in Ableton move to set their values :P I am really happy to finally found a way to have the both work together really as one system. I still have to look how to make it a bit more pretty and tabbed (it is one long device atm) and then i will post it somewhere. Priority after that would be Combinator,Thor,Antidote,Kong (if i find a way to mute over midi in drumrack), Subtractor. Hope i dont finde any other barriers.

I would also like to name the banks but i think this would mean, i have to dig into the Push remote script :/
