Max For Live parameters don't save

Post by jon.orsi » Mon Aug 03, 2020 3:42 pm

Hi,

Been using Ableton Live Suite 10.1.9 for a few months now.

Every time I use Max For Live devices, save, exit, and reopen a project, there seems to be a random assortment of device parameters that either are set to default again, or 0. This is the case for at least the Color Limiter, (ceiling, release, saturation, color), Convolution Reverb (width, dry/wet), LFO (rate, wave, depth).

I know the parameters are wrong because if I change them and then use the undo command, they snap back to their original parameters. E.g. if I have the Color Limiter on my master bus, I won't hear anything when playing because the ceiling for some reason is now at the lowest value, but if I change the parameter slightly then undo, it will snap back to -1db or whatever setting I had it before.

Thanks.

Yes, it's a known issue. It doesn't happen to everyone; what OS are you using Jon.orsi?
Make sure to report: support@ableton.com

Of course this is annoying, but unfortunately everything takes more time thanks to the Covid... sorry for the hassle :|

All those devices and parameters save just fine here, in the latest Live 10.1.17 and beta 10.1.25b1 versions, on Windows 10.

Why not updating to the latest Live 10.1.18?
