snapshot better than signal rate? live.remote

September 18, 2013 | 7:27 pm

Hi,

Im automating lots of parameters at once, very fast in ableton using live.remote. These dials tend to go from 0 to 128 in a loop. Ive tried using both snapshot and signal rate to automate these.

From what Ive read on the forums it’s better to use signal rate rather than snapshot in these situations. However, im finding the opposite is the case (with live.remote).

When I use signal rate there are occasional random jumps. Is there something I might need to do to get signal rate to work better? Ive tried downsampling by 512, but nothing seems to be better than snapshot.

I’d just run everything through the speedlim object. I have mine set on 30 ms with almost all objects. It’s fast enough and stops the system getting bogged down with too much information.
You should also try putting the update rate of live parameters on 30ms instead of the default which is 1ms (inside inspector settings)
