Futility v3 is a MaxForLive device that gives you very handy shortcuts that aren't natively implemented into Live.
It works on the selected track:
- un/mute the selected track
- un/solo the selected track
- un/arm the selected track
- unmute, unsolo, unarm every tracks
- show/hide the envelope/modulation tab in the detail clip view
- un/fold the selected track
- un/zoom the selected track vertically and horizontally in Arrangement
- toggle play/stop the selected clip (in Session)
- automatic track arming option
- focus to the browser/arrangement/device view (useful for navigating with your keyboard's arrow keys).
- quickly move your selected clip to a new Take Lane (requires Live11)
- Save your Live set from your midi controller / midi map.
Load the device (preferably) on your Master track (it works on any track, but it's just more handy to have it on your Master); map the buttons to your keyboard and/or midi controller; save as new template in Live's preferences and you're good to go!
As always, simply hover over any button/text to know what they do.
Be aware that this device is not meant to record e.g mute/solo/arm automations.
Make sure to not trigger any actions from the device when you're recording something in Live if you have the global automation active otherwise the automation would be recorded for Futility and not for the track itself resulting in weird actions or conflict (Live's "back to automation" triggered/automations disabled).
Live 8 + MaxForLive needed.
Free updates, for ever ;-)
- muted tracks could get unmuted when opening sets.
- Live's Save dialog was opening on load.
- new feature: key/midi mappable "move selection to a new Take lane" automated process (only available in L11).
- "toggle sel. clip" is renamed to "Play/Stop selected clip"
- some clean up
- AutoArm was blocking Live's Undo history
- fix "needs to press kill/mute twice"
- fix using (kill)mute blocking Live's undo history
WARNING: the « show envelope » action can crash Live 11beta (due to the WIP new detail clip tabs. Hopefully Ableton will fix this before the release)
- fixed Live's undo history being "blocked" after using the Mute button.
- added a midi mappable cmd(ctrl)-S to save your project from any midi controller.
- patch clean up
