Can a mutlislider be automated in Max for Live?

I’ve been reading the Max for Live pattr tutorial, but I can’t find anything about multisliders. It makes me wonder why there isn’t a live.multislider object. Thanks for any help.

The live.* GUI objects are used for automation and thus only work for simple int or float messages. In contrast, multislider requires multi value messages, ie. sending a single number to multislider would just set all sliders to the same value.

Thanks broc. That makes sense, that the host automation is not going to handle lists, or break them apart for me.

You can attach a pattr object with parameter enable, setting the parameter type to Blob, then your multislider will be saved with the device preset.
