Re: chain selector and device on/off

...i tried to set up the ranges so that they cover the whole 127 steps but without success...maybe you don't see the behaviour because you've mapped the on/off via the multimapper device since i also don't have it when i select the instruments when the chain selector macro is mapped to a knob (on my nanokontrol) via midi or when i turn the macro with my mouse...

No, the on/off are mapped to the chain selector macro, try with the rack in this liveset : http://adobe.ly/1LcdlOs

…just tested it and guess what?…it's the same behaviour i have with my racks: when selecting the instruments via mouse it works flawless, with push the first step of the chain always opens the instrument in status "off", e.g. in your set step 42 opens the "swept organ pad" in "off", from 43 onwards it's "on"…i reported that to ableton support…it will be interesting to see what say about it…
thanks for your suggestions and for the test-set!!!

Indeed, same behavior here, strange... I didn't noticed it before because i always selected a higher value. Keep us updated when they answer you :wink:

I have a chain selector set up this way, to turn instruments on and off as I scroll. It works, EXCEPT I get audio drops when performing live when I scroll to another instrument. Can anyone explain this?

Do you have some notes still playing ? It could be that

Hope it's alright that I'm bumping this thread. I was following the instructions here and they worked almost flawlessly. The only flaw being that it sometimes seems to be generating ghost notes that I can't turn off when I switch back and forth between a couple instruments. Obviously they don't generate noise while off, but when the chain is selected and they're on: ghost notes. ~spooky~

There's no midi signal going through, so I can't flush the signal and get the sound to stop...

Ideas?
