'Relative' Takeover Mode

Post by Internet Culture » Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:34 am

Instead of relying on Value Scaling, why not just have a Takeover Mode that adjusts your encoder value relative to whatever the macro is set at? That why it's always accurate and you can avoid jumping values.

When you're in MIDI map mode and you click on a parameter to map in Live, look at the status bar at the bottom of Live. You can select all sorts of things like relative, 2's compliment, inc dec, etc.

Thanks Erik! I know about the little status bar, it's good for manual mappings. I think a relative mode would be handy for control surfaces that automatically map their encoders to Ableton's macros.
