Relative modulation for Live macro knobs

    Nov 24 2013 | 3:55 am
    I am trying to create a Max for Live patch that sits in a rack (instrument rack, drum rack, effects rack whatever) and generates modulation for the macros of that rack relative to their current position (so that the user can still twiddle the macro knobs live while the modulation runs). There are some cool devices out there like the global LFO device in the M4L essentials pack, but as far as I can tell they all move the parameter absolutely and I have not yet seen something that accesses the relativistic modulation that you can draw in as an envelope when you right click a parameter and click "show modulation". I am aware of modulation modes for live.dial etc, but even then how do you point something in a max patch rather than the envelope editor to the modulation?
