map VSTs to Push 2 without racks

Post by teknobryan » Tue Nov 10, 2015 11:46 pm

Right now, only the last parameter touched shows up on the Push 2 when on a VST or AU. Is it possible for Push 2 to save and/or show more parameters without racking?

The manual is your friend, read it some time.

Also, pay attention: the configuration can now be saved as default.
A parameter configuration can now be saved as a default per AU or VST plug-in. This is done via a new context menu entry available in Live's plug-in device. The default configurations are stored in a "Plug-In Configurations" folder under "User Library/Defaults".

Neat little hidden feature of Live:

If you're on Windows, create a file called options.txt in \AppData\Roaming\Ableton\Live 9.5\Preferences and do this...

Auto-populates the plugin parameter list if a plugin has a number of less or equal than X parameters

Default = 32
Min = 1
Max = 128

"-1" will always populate the list with max. 128 parameters, regardless how many parameters the plugin has (= similar to Live 7 behaviour)

Supported since: 8.1.1

Example: -_PluginAutoPopulateThreshold=32
A word to the wise - if you set the threshhold too high, it becomes confusing. It sounds nice to have it up at like 120-something, but in practice it's not as great as you'd think. I have mine set at 32.
