Ableton and Novation are happy to announce that starting with the beta of Live 5.2 and Live Lite 5.0.5, Live will support Automap for Novation's ReMOTE SL keyboard.
To utilize Automap, you'll need to first update your ReMOTE SL Firmware to version 5 by downloading and running the installer. Click here
and follow the instructions.
Next, you'll need to download the update to the beta of Live 5.2 here
. or Live Lite 5.0.5 here
Have fun with this powerful combination!
We are aware of the issues here, and we hear you and are working with Novation to do what we can. Let me address a few of the issues here:
Regarding moving between instruments without a mouse:
Unfortunately, this is not as easy to logically implement. Which control/knob/button would we use to select between devices? We could not find a straightforward way to implement this when we were developing the mapping, and there is no clear solution here without dedicated buttons or arrow keys on the hardware.
Regarding jumping faders, etc.:
Unfortunately, at this time we don't have pick up/soft takeover mode in our software, and without motorized faders or endless rotary knobs, this is a problem that will be around for some time. However, it is on our wish list and we hope to develop this feature in a future update of the software, but we don't have an exact timeline at the moment as this is not an easy thing to implement.
Regarding the bug on PC only, regarding stuck selected instruments:
This has been fixed, and will be available with the next bug fix update to Live.
Other than this, we are working to get any other bugs out of the way, please make sure to post in the bugs & problems forum, and we'll have software fixes as soon as we can in the next update.
