Using signals to control rack parameters ignores mappings

Post by mo-seph » Fri Nov 28, 2014 9:02 pm

I've found a strange bug in Instrument Racks.

I assign a control on the device to a macro knob, and set the max/min values
If I control the macro knob using a live.observer, sending out messages, it works correctly.
If I control it using a live.remote~, then
* the display for both the parameter and the macro knob goes over the range I've set
* the actual value used, however, goes over the full range of the control

So, for instance, if I set Operator's volume to be -Inf to -12dB, when the signal is at 127.0, the macro knob reads -12dB, Operator's volume reads -12dB, but the actual signal coming out is at +6dB (operator's maximum).

Anyone else found this? Workarounds?

Got a workaround! Switching off the signal (deactivating the live.remote~) before setting the mapping ranges sets them correctly.
