Ableton Live 11 Device Parameter Numbers

A couple of quick questions from a new user:

1) It seems like the device parameter numbers have been changed from what they were in Live 10. The documentation here doesn't have an updated list for Live 11, and I can't seem to find one in my searches on Google. Is there an updated list available? I'm trying to map my Midi Twister to the parameters of the Analog synth.

2) This problem is compounded by the fact that I seem to need to restart Ableton every time I make a change to a script. Is this dumb of me? Is there a work around? Shooting in the dark on parameter numbers will be impossible at the rate I'm going.

I found this resource but when I attempt to sync this script to live I'm greeted with this message:

Error
The 'Controller Input' selected for '' mapping no longer exists in attached controller. Select an available controller input in the mapping's settings form.

I assume this means that it was designed for a different midi device than the device I'm using? I can't figure out how to get past this message.

Fixed that error. Script assumes Button 1 was pressed. I changed it to Knob 1. Seems to export to live now, but after turning knob 1 I checked the log (controlling for Ableton version number) and nothing seemed to be there relating to the parameter mappings in Ableton.

Is there a more user friendly way to determine this? Would querying the Ableton API directly somehow yield this data to me? Not knowing the parameters seems like a show stopped for the product.

Ha. Found them in the log finally.

I think the barrier to entry here would be a lot lower if Ableton API values were somehow incorporated into the application. It's pretty difficult to find these I think for a non-technical user.

Hi Ziggomatic,

When you go to the 'Import script' page from CSS, you can import the 'Log Device Parameter Names' script.
It is my favorite script, it show all the parameters for your selected device (not only Ableton devices but also VST's) :-)
You can watch a tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDHH5-TdE1M

Success!

@Ziggomatic,
We have just updated the device parameters tool, all parameter name/numbers should now be correct for Live 10 & 11.
