commands for options.txt file

Post by moodyman » Thu Apr 23, 2009 5:53 pm

Hi

has somebody a list with all available commands for the options.txt file and what you can do with the specific commands.
At the moment i have nearly 10 commands in my txt file, which are working great. I have found a old list, but i don't know if they are all up to date.

thanks

i'd love to see your list and what they do, i couldn't really find any useful ones searching google.

-NoVstStartupScan is very useful because if you have two folders that contain VSTs and you put a shortcut to the second folder in your default VST plugins folder it takes FOREVER to scan everything in the second folder each time Live starts up.
