Device Overview

Name/Version: Pause Button 1.1
Author: jeffcaylor  
Description: Ableton Live's transport is designed to play from the last start point persistently. Usually it's convenient, but sometimes it would be nice to pause and continue where you left off. This is possible using SHIFT+SPACEBAR but there isn't an in-built way to do this with any mappable functions in Ableton Live. 

Pause Button solves this problem. Drop this lightweight, processor friendly MaxForLive device into any audio or midi track and once your transport is playing, you can use the button to pause and continue playback. You can also stop the transport using the spacebar and then continue playback using Pause Button. 

Map the MAP ZONE on the device to midi messages or your computer keyboard for remote toggle control. Alternatively, you can map separate midi notes or cc messages to the play and pause buttons independently.

Version History:

1.1 - Updated interface and cleaned up code. Added midi mappable play and pause buttons.

Seems like a handy little tool. Since its free, do you think you could host it here so we don't have to signup for an account / enter in a credit card number on your site?

Thanks for the feedback, Broah. The device is free at the moment, but I don't know that it always will be. As long as it remains free, users can bypass that form field on the site. Self-hosting also allows me to update users via email if I make significant updates in the future.

so it cant be downloaded I registered for nothing
don't send me any emails it was a good hook tho
