I made a small patch using "key" to trigger presets of another live device (e.g. change feedback parameter of a delay from 69% to 96%) with keystrokes.
works fine, but it is only responding to the keystroke if the m4l device is active – meaning I have to click into the background of the m4l device. if I click somewhere else, it doesn´t respond to the keystrokes.
yes, the ableton key mapping works but only for 2 values – the minimum and maximum range that you can set.
but my idea was to have 3 or more values mapped to keys – like key a = 0% key s = 25% key d = 67% and so on…
