Avoiding undo points with [live.object]

January 3, 2011 | 2:43 am

I’ve done a bit of searching around, both here and elsewhere, so forgive me if this specific issue has already been discussed, but if so I certainly did not find it.

The M4L documentation from C74 and Ableton suggests setting a device’s parameter as "Stored Only" or "Hidden" to avoid creating needless undo points.

However, this does not seem to address my situation, in which a [live.object] within my M4L patch can be set to automate various Live tracks’ volume and panning levels. Since, strictly speaking, Live’s mixer and not the M4L device itself is generating the undo points, the above method has no effect.

Is there any way to suppress Live’s storing of these kinds of M4L-based automations?

Many thanks in advance!

Try live.remote instead of live.object

Couldn’t see the forest for the trees… Thank you very much — indeed that works.
