HELP : I edited an .amxd in a text editor and now the device is corrupt
Jul 25 2021 | 11:12 am
Yes, I should have been more careful, but I simply expected that editing a few initial parameter values in Atom would not be a problem. Now, when opening the device in Ableton it says this:
A serious program error has occurred. Live will shut down after this message box is closed. Please restart Live and follow the instructions in the 'Report a Crash' lesson that will appear in Live's Help View. And Max just won't open the device.
Does anyone know how to repair this? When I look at the JSON nothing appears to be different from non-text-edited devices.
Also, for a specific use case I would like to be able to edit M4L init values in a text editor. I have several clients that use the same device, but require different values. Editing these in text would be the most straightforward as it also enables the client to do this without opening the device and going into edit mode etc.
