In Live 9, my Akai APC40 MK II would recognize the controls of a custom Max for Live Device. Now when I load a custom device, the Device Control section of the APC has no dials that are lit up. Also, turning dials has no effect on the highlighted device.
To replicate the issue with an APC in Live 10:
1. Add a new Max Instrument to a blank track.
2. Click the edit button to modify the device.
3. Delete the default objects.
4. Create a new [live.dial] Max object.
5. Save and close the device.
In Live 9, these steps would create a device in which the dial that was created would map to the first dial on the APC40 in the "Device Control" section of the APC's knobs.
Older Max for Live devices like Chamberverb also have this problem. The controls don't automatically map to the APC. Newer devices like Convolution Reverb Pro don't have this problem and the device controls map to the APC knobs automatically.
Is there a setting for a Max for Live device itself or individual objects like each dial that needs to be set so that hardware controllers recognize it when the devices become active/selected in Live?
