Is there value Feedback for motor faders or endless encoders with led rings with remotify! I am thinking about bying a motor fader DAW controller, but this would only make sense if the faders will move to the right position, when moving the session box... Thanks!

Hi

I'm almost 100% sure other people have successfully used motorised fader feedback with their scripts.
Maybe someone who has already tried it can chime in :)

is there anybody out there..., using MotorFader???
So how about endless encoders with LED ring(must be the same principle), does the LED ring reflect the new value, when moving the session box to another position,or do you have to move the encoder to bring up the new value?
Is there noone using such equipment?
Or are my English skills that bad, so nooneunderstands (so sorry for that)?
Please, someone doing a little test for me...

I use a midi fighter twister which has LED rings.
The rings auto update when the linked parameters change inside Ableton or when you turn the encoder.

YES buddy, it certainly does!

I'm using a Motor61 - EXCELLENT for this, except i wish the pads had led feedback so I could see the session clips lit up.

Although my specific keyboard seems to need a constant panic or reset to stay Motored (changing power might have helped and there's a firmware update before I try service) as long as the ports are correctly set I get instant feedback on the LED rings AND the faders.

For example, when I move the session box or my tracks the faders move to show the current subset of tracks.

In addition - using the "Tour of Live" demo (you can load it from 'Take a Tour of Live' in the help window) there's a swell that uses 'automation.' That means there are recorded device changes and volume changes.

Well, as it plays, you can watch the fader slide up and abrubptly drop every two bars or whatever, and the LED rings also show the twisting effect changes.

If you move the session box, you'll see the fader that swells move over and continue it's automated movement.

LOVE Remotify. I'm making scripts (sometimes I add things after I have the finished script) that are WAY more advanced than I would have the patience to figure out!

Just want DRUM pads or Instrument! PLEASE!!! lol

Enjoy it and

best,

Wow that sounds amazing, would love to see the faders moving and led rings changing along with the session playing.

I'm gonna do a video showing Remotify's magic on the Conspiracy AND the Motor 61 simultaneously (cause the sessions are linked, so I can start clips on either device, and move the session box from EITHER device) and post you a link.

John!

I did that video the same week, but I've been having trouble figuring out how to load it up so I can post a link here. I'll try to work on that this week.

Best,

Hi, I also have a question.
I have a behringer cmd lc1 controller with encoders with led feedback
but the value in the endless encoder moves slowly mapped in SEND
I do not know what to do

Have you tried changing the encoder type to a different option such as 'relative smooth two compliment'?
