live.remote~ and track mute

March 6, 2010 | 1:30 am

Hi

Is there any way to use live.remote~ to control the mute parameter of a track? It seems that it isn’t actually listed as a parameter, but as a property of the track. Basically I’d like to automate this control without it affecting the undo history and without allowing me to accidentally click it.

Many thanks

Interestingly, the mute button within racks can be mapped to a macro and then controlled with live.remote~. In some cases this may be used as a workaround.

Also interesting (but disappointing); it seems you can only modulate macros when racks are involved. At first I thought this might be an Ableton limitation, but you can still directly automate any parameter within a rack. Seems that the MFL API is blind devices within any of Abelton’s racks.

It would be lovely if this changed, particularly if all the devices on a track were directly accessible so that racks and devices within and without them were shown side by side. This would fit best with the current paradigm and look exactly like the automation list.
