save MIDI-Mapping in devices and/or tracks

Post by warper » Mon Jun 18, 2018 10:28 am

would be very helpful to be able to safe MIDI-mapping in devices and tracks.
In my live setup I am using several hardware controllers with special midi mapping. In sum, there are nearly 1000 MIDI-commands I use. So, when I start creating a new song, there is only one way to work: loading a setup song with all my stuff (devices, tracks) with all their mappings, wether I need them for the new song or not. So, my "template" realy needs near one minute to load... I would like to have the opportunity, to load devices and tracks with special mapping WHEN I need them, not every time from the beginning. I am aware about the problem, that, if there are MIDI commands are used in a song, and a device with same mapping would be loaded, there would be a controller conflict. But, may be, Ableton Live then could start an option like: "Device loading will overwrite existing MIDI mapping. Are you sure?", or so on...

+1000000 for this. I have about 200 mappings across 2 devices I use regularly. I also resort to including all midi-mapped devices in my default template and just removing whatever I don't want to use in that session. Saving mappings with devices (or device racks) would significantly improve my workflow and reduce my template load times.

If it's Blue Hand Automapping that you want to save and you have a supported controller like the Push 2 then this could be very useful.

Any news about that? This feature would improve my workflow so much!!! We need this feature.

Save Midi Mappings with Tracks and Devices in Ableton! So you can combine two sessions without starting mapping from the beginning. I want to be able to drag and drop my preconfigured Tracks and Devices with saved midi mappings.

I did not check the isotonik studio PrEditor device jet. Did this work for you guys?

I cannot stress enough how much i need this to be implemented. I haven't found any good workarounds yet.

can we not just make an instrument rack for instruments and then save a mapping for the rack. The activate or deactivate what instrument rack we need working? its not a complete workaround, but laying out the parametrers in a rack might be faster than just redoing everything.
