midi map a button but not record automation?

October 2, 2013 | 6:55 pm

Im using a live button with a bang after it so that it functions like a trigger (momentary button). The problem is that its recording automation into my loops and then the bang after the live button disrupts said automation which causes the rest of my patch to not function properly. So, is it possible to be able to midi map the button but not record automation for it?

If there was a more eligant way to do a momentary button this would be a non issue. Seems like the available momentary buttons arent mapable to midi, am I right?

I solved it myself. After reading about how the live button doesnt work properly as a toggle I was all confused. But my midi controller can send momentary cc presses which work just fine.

Thats always been my solution but a drag if a user cant define with their controller to send cc’s…. Still awaitinbg an update to live.button to allow proper momentary behaviour!

Cheers
