Saving Key Mappings in Default Device Presets

Post by tmech » Sat Nov 07, 2009 8:53 pm

Chapter 16.1.1 of the manual describes how to save a default preset for a device by selecting "Save as Default Preset" after right-clicking on the device header.

I would like to save key mappings in a default preset, but this doesn't seem to work. For example, I might wish to map the "l", "m", and "h" keyboard keys to the low, mid and hi cut of EQ Three, and save that as a default preset, so that every generic instance of EQ Three is loaded with a built-in keymap. This does not seem to work.

Am I missing something?

This is not possible.

key-mappings and midi mappings can only get saved in a set, not in device-presets.

Only thing you can do is to save them into your default set:

You drop your eq3 into a channel, assign the keys as you like and then go to the preferences, "file-folder"-section and hit "save current set as default set".

Now everytime you open a new fresh set you will already have your eq3 with the key-assignments there.

HI there. I' simply am a 95% satisfied customer, a long-time ableton defender - who desires& politely demands audience and respected consideration of the below - 'pent up/yet appropriate, yet mild spew of what I feel are greatly unrepresented and overlooked efficiency utilizations of all daws, ableton including - #CHANGE.

Ill tell you something Mr. Ableton, if a menu optimizing customizable key-binding - for basic actions/selections-kinda stuff, was to be added via next update, or any update within the quadcentrium...I would , boy oh boy, be *ing bricks in amazement and awe. I toss and turn every night by the "Inception w/Leonardo DiCaprio" type- intensity dream-states that are simply traumatizing reminders of the "why is this still not a thing".
It is rampantly absent phenomena that almost all design/editor/application softwares - not just you fellas...Correct me if I am wrong but I imagine it can't be such an "asdhajsdhakjs?" sort of concept, or an "Einstein/potatoes = MC2(squared)" type of scenario. I'm no programmer but almost every Video game sure makes it seem like cheese cake easy.
-(no offensee) #Ilovableton
here is another.

#Ableton.theDAW.that.discovered.LIGHTSPEED - 'Just think about.

!!!FAIL!! - ewww now imagine if Fls or logic did this first. You'd be like 'that one person with clothes hanging out of their suitcase who arrives to their departing flight 5 minutes after the plane made airspace.

if that is too hard to wrap around the program or considering it could..maybe....potentially create a cluster* through the different menus,Aunits, ploogins etc.. try leaving maybe just One key. 1. UNO. ONE singular keyboard key. #1 , uno key available with ...one ...simple function - 1.alternatively functions as a left click. // An alternative to Left click, #carpaltunnel


Also another INCREDIBLE idea, easily applicable too... from urs truly. - If all of the following mentioned above is for whatever reason unable to implement..at least- for my sake & the other 1.35 billion underrepresented victims of pointer-finger abuse & decimation from arrangement grid passes (grid yoyo-ing), clip shifting, intractable buttons that are small and hard to click on sometimes(blessing in disguise because able-ton interface is perfect), and others....
is
- add a simple co-functional button for the mouses' leftclick that would serve as an alternative option for all the single/incremental clicking actions , not requiring mouse-holding / toggle functionalities . #Relieving.pointer.finger.abuse

Also what would be not as amazing as the other two incorporations above but still viable- ^providing a toggle for keys1-9(num1-9) of your "typing" keyboard allowing the 10% incremental values for each key relating toward its paralleled fader/knob representation. ableton fader/knobs' - toggle of course to that

yours truely,

Bombshell
