Device Overview

Name/Version: Automation Capture 1.0
Author: SimonR  
Description: Use this device to automatically create automation breakpoints of various MIDI data in your clips.

Automation Capture stores the last values of CCs and/or keyswitch notes played on your track before recording, and then sends all those values again when you start recording in order to create breakpoints as well as KS trigger notes. This can save a big amount of unnecessary time when the state of some controls weren’t stored because they weren't moved during the recording.

NB : You need to put this device in a MIDI track and have your instruments pick up the MIDI input from that track in order to have the information stored in your MIDI clips.

CC Min-Max : Select the range of CC numbers for which you want to store values

CC Repeat Interval : those values can be sent at a repeated time interval. A small nudge (Nudge button) might be necessary to create new breakpoints each time.

KS Min-Max : Select the range of notes used as keyswitches. MIDI Capture will trigger the last played KS when the clip starts recording.

KS Repeat Interval : The KS can also be triggered repeatedly at the specified time interval.

Latch : The KS note can be sustained indefinitely.

Clear : Manually clear all stored values. MIDI Capture automatically clears all data every time you arm a track.

Thank You Simon! works fine, and I must say it's a shame that Ableton Live don't do what this thing do out of the box, it will save me so much time when recording

I changed the repeat interval in the inspector to meet my needs (0.01)... by the way you have put an exponent that constrain the intervals values at 0.5 or 10, intermediate values won't work unless you put back the exponent value from "4." to "1." in the inspector...
