Hi egnouf

The device looks great, good work!

I tried putting this on a MIDI track to control some devices on a different midi track and I had a problem.

The map button works but the 1st step sequencer would not play. So I tried the second one, the step seq played and it was mapped, but the target device was not being controlled by the step sequencer.

My previous setup was using the the Live 9 Max Essential Control devices - LFO,Envlope on 1 midi track to control a different midi track - but it seems I can't do this workflow with this device, right?.

Thanks for your comment.
I will try to reproduce your issue on my setup.
I come back to you asap with a solution :-)

Hi egnouf,

I trully love the device you have created. It's exactly what I was looking for.

Only what I don't understand is, why the target parameter stops to be controled when I change a value of some step in the sequencer. If I remap the parameter, then it works again. Is it issue on my side or it's been made like this ? I'd like to use your device for live performances, but when I have to remap evrytime it slow me down.

Thanks for answer and greetings from the Czech republic !
