parameter values are not correctly restored upon save

Post by jayemell » Thu Jun 12, 2014 6:03 am

Apologies for cross posting.

I'm having the following issue:

Has anyone come across this?
I'd imagine that most people who have worked w/ M4L have come across it in one form or another...

Thanks,
jml

Not sure if this is the exact same problem you're experiencing, but I've had lots of trouble with values/mappings being retained when using M4L devices. For example, I'll map several parameters of various devices to an audio effect rack, map a randomizer to the 8 macro knobs of said rack, and things will work dandy during the session. But if I exit Live, and re-open the set, I'll often find that the randomizer is only mapped to 6 of the 8 knobs now for whatever reason. The parameters are still mapped, but the macro knobs have been reset to 0 and un-greyed. More often than not it's the macro which I've mapped a ping pong Dry/Wet control to (not sure why it is this more than other parameters... same with feedback).

Anyway, it's really tedious to re-map certain parameters each time you load up a session. I posted about this elsewhere and got not responses. I've searched online for answers but found nothing so far. It's really frustrating.

In your cycling74 post you state that you're editing the device, then parameter values get lost. This has to do with preview mode, for more details see viewtopic.php?f=35&t=204700#p1609050 about workflow in M4L.
