I have been using Kapture by Richie Hawtin and Liine. Its a very cool max for live effect that allows you to instantly recall the exact settings of a live set including vst's. You do this by taking a 'snap shot' in much the same way as you would save a patch on a synth. However with this you can instantly recall for example track volume, panning, sends and vst settings by clicking on the snap shot you have saved. Dead simple and really cool.
What it cant do is respond to midi program change messages say from a clip. Neither can you automate any of it in midi for that matter which is quite ironic since it's such a powerfull parameter controling device.
What I would like to do would be to have a sitation where i can launch a scene and it would recall for example the exact send/return and volume settings. Then continue to move through scenes in this way bringing up different snap shots of abletons parameters as you launch a scene.
Frankly for me this would be pretty mindblowing stuff in terms of the live implications and it could be done I think if the Kapture liine effect's drop down menu where you save all of your snap shots of your live set's responded to midi clip program change messages.
If its not possible, then unfortunately this thing is limited to things like comparing different versions of mixes which is cool as you can do it by just clicking on the snap shot. But i think this is something that I want to utilise for performance and I'm left scratching my head as to why Richie Hawtin didnt think of this as he designed it for performance. Am I missing a trick any one?
