Device Overview

Name/Version: Keep Follow On 0.5
Author: dennisdesantis  
Description: When the device is on, Live's Follow button will remain on, even when zooming or scrolling within clips or the Arrangement.

Turning the device off turns Follow off, and allows you to resume manual control of the Follow button.

It will work in any track, but probably makes the most sense in the Master track (since it's a "global" utility).


Known issues: when zooming in clips or the Arrangement during playback, the screen may jump between the area you're zooming to and the current play position.

I'd like to fix this by allowing Follow to turn off while zooming, but I haven't yet figured out how.

Nice one Dennis!

Brilliant, Thank you !!

10 out of 5 !
Actually tried it only after I commented above and it's really one of these usefull features that are otherwise lacking in Live.
It also keeps following in the edited clip window, fantastic!
Thanks for sharing!

Problem: it cannot be turned off if you're not on the track it is on.
ie. if you put in on master and you've assigned a shortcut to the [on/off] button, you need to select the master track to turn the effect off.
Can that be fixed with an update to max 7 ?
