I’ve been using a Max For Live device I made that ‘shows’ me the id/path of the currently selected parameter (by monitoring the observable ‘selected parameter’ property of the Live API).
I’ve just made the device ‘release worthy’ (i.e. tidied it up) and added the ability to additionally monitor the currently selected track/scene/device. It should be ideal for solving this and similar problems….
The device is called ‘Where Am I’ and can be downloaded for free from my site here:
