This has just killed me.

I cannot undo anything anymore in my Live 9. Only thing available in Undo is "Change Voice 1 Level." No idea what that would be in relation to my track.

What is going on???!!! I would be incredibly grateful for an answer on this. Undo is just fundamental. Can't work effectively/quickly without it.

Did you Save your project while you were working on it? In Live 9 that will reset the undo history, in Live 10 this is no longer the case luckily.

Had something similar awhile back where I couldn’t undo anything I wanted. Instead it kept saying it undid some volume parameter. I remember finding it was related to a plugin. It kept trying to undo changes to the plugin even though I did not touch it or made any changes. I eventually just deleted the plugin. I remember the developer said it had something to do with Java. Never tried to resolve to resolve it and just stopped using that plugin.

I was having much the same problem, but with a different item in the undo list. I found the problem - a Max for Live plugin that's recording every time it triggers. I've got it on several tracks, which means it's as many as a hundred events every second the transport is running. I found a video talking about the same problem with a different M4L plugin, so it seems this is not uncommon with M4L plugins. Someone commented on the vide that it's possible to edit the plugins to remove the unwanted changes from being recorded as events to undo. I'm looking into that now. But I'm also going to alert the creator of the plugin to the problem.

Don't bother. Its a bug in MFL and has been there for about 10 years now. Ableton doesn't see it as a bug. The plugin creator can't help.

It depends on where the issue is coming from the device. In many cases a simple non-persistent mapping solves this kind of issue.

There are workarounds, but unfortunately they come with trade-offs. Turning off the persistent mapping means you can't store the ID inside the mapping object. In the cases where UI elements are the culprit, the suggestion is to turn off the parameter visibility and subsequently turn off the automation and MIDI Learn function.
Another culprit is rounding errors. If you switch between the amount of decimals in between an observer, ui element and remote, you can get imperceptible changes that trigger undo.

That all said, there may be another way because of dict, live.banks and maybe Max 8's own MIDI Learn. Store paths in a dict blob, limit UI parameter updates with live.banks or avoid them entirely by using Max's MIDI mapping. I wish I had more free time. Live.banks seems perfect for dealing with a load of custom mappings.

I have had a similar problem which I eventually traced to a plug-in (RX6 De-noise). If I use it in real time, I can't undo anything -- the only editing steps I can see under Undo in Live are (e.g.) "Change threshold 5". There are too many to wade through, and they aren't recorded in the Live undo data file. If I disable the plug-in, Undo starts to work again (but I can't recover older editing steps). You might try turning off your plug-ins one at a time and trying some edits and undos, to see if your problem is something similar. Hope this helps.

brockmra,

Thank you so much for posting the culprit and solution to this problem! It was coming from my RX7 Voice De-noise running in real time. I was having the problem with a huge live session and have been trying to figure out what plugin was causing the undo "change threshold 6". Saved me an extensive drag back to the browser and delete process of elimination.

Greatly appreciated!!

AJ

actually, deleting rx6 out of the project didn't help, still no undo

new empty projects, undo no problem

I thought reinstalling helped briefly, but now no undo again on same project
