this looks great. I put an idea similar to this for Lives suggestions, can't wait to try it.

thanks ! hope they'll hear you, a native (dynamical) version would be so great.

Hello, can a macro control multiple parameters? Are assigned parameters disabled for further assignment? (like in a normal macro) or doeus your device allows for example 2 diferent macros to access to one same parameter? (that's what I'm looking for).


let's say MB is my macro, M the ableton live native's macro, and P a parameter.
- One MB can grip only one P, or only one M.
- A second MB can grip P or M too, so they can be controled by different MB, etc...
- If P is assigned to M, MB can grip M but it can't grip P.
- One MB can grip another MB (just let the "set" button "On" to let the pink live dial appears, this one is grippable).
Hope it helps, let me know !

I'm having some issues with bugs in general. It doesn't seem to save my names or colors between project reloads and sometimes things that should be clickable aren't clickable.

Could it be an issue in using max 7?

Hello !

could you tell me for which macrobs ? Have you got some issues with the single one ? For this moment I didn't upgrade to max 7 but I'll do soon, I can't say but a priori there should not have big differences from 6 because the device gets parameters ids. Maybe you could send me an email to tell me more ? Let me know with more details :) : flo [at] szk . fr
