I'd like to make a really simple version of something like this, that would allow for CC control of just sends on the current track. Anyone seen something like this? Or could you gimme a hint on what selector I need? :D

Check this out, hacked it up in about 10 minutes:

Not sure if this is exactly what you're after, but this will map to up to four sends (can easily make it 8) on the selected track. You can MIDI map to the dials in the device to use CCs to control the sends.

Woo! Glad I could help.

That sentence with the glasses was meant to read:

"can easily make it 8"

Awesome yeah I just did! Ambitions have expanded... Now trying to figure out how to make it extend to volume, pan and mute, and work for any track (with track number selector) :mrgreen:

Rad.

It wouldn't be tough to do either of those things.
Just copy the code that looks for the send control, and change the path to the volume/panning/etc.
Instead of mixer_device sends 0, it would be mixer_device volume, or mixer_device panning.

And the path would change to live_set tracks X, where X is the track index (use $1 for variables in message boxes).

Brilliant, thanks Evan! You just answered most of the questions I've been pondering!

Well out of my depth with this one! My question is - is it possible to get the track name, and map the faders without actually focusing Live on a track? (so changing track away from the mapping plugin).

If possible I'd like to make the selections without having to run everything in a pop up.

Hah.. underwater might be more accurate. OK, so here's what I'm trying to achieve - a MIDI-Remote-control-mixer for Live, to be driven by Reaktor. (Reaktor build is pretty much done now).

I have about 12 tracks to handle, each with 7 sends (yeah I know), so with all parameters for each track that would be about 150 manual mappings, if I just used an expanded "JGJP-CCmapper12-v2" and got on with it. However I'd rather just be able to tell Max - OK map this track, then that track, then the other, (and click once for each track :D ).

So! I'm now trying to figure out the basic principles of Live.API... and come up with something in-between these two great patches - "Select_Tracks1" and "Selected Track V1.2" that does the above! (Screengrab https://ibb.co/inRbhQ)

Yeah that's possible. If I understand what you are asking. But I'm not really sure. Almost anything is possible with the API.
You want this to be one device that can control the mixer of up to twelve tracks? With no floating UI? Just need a more clear description of what you're after here.

Yep that's exactly it. I just need the controls in Live- The UI that links to them is all in Reaktor (proto-mixer https://ibb.co/jTpfRk)

Wow... well I cracked the bulk of it. Just need to RTFM a bit :D ...

Question is now - live.remote vs a live.observer / live.object combo. Which is better for performance?

Code:
