hi first of all great job with ccs!!
so my question is if is possible to arm a track when is selected and unarm it when u select another?
i am using a rotary encoder to navigate between tracks.
hope is possible, if not would be nice to be able in the future.
greetings from chile!

Hi there,

In response to this we have added a piece of code to make this possible.
Currently it will need to be done via a 'Reaction' mapping and you will need to tweak a line of code directly inside your script.

Here are the steps:
1 On the mode, Add a 'Reactions' mapping containing 1 Reaction
2 Open the reaction mapping settings form, for the 'Listener' select your rotary encoder which navigates between tracks.
3 In 'Reactions' select 'view' and then paste this into the input box next to it:
Set the next option as (), and leave the next 2 as input and empty.
4 install your script
5 Open the script .py file located in your MIDI Remote Script folder
6 Search for this line:
and replace it with this
7 open Ableton Live and the assigned script will now auto arm the selected track and auto remove arm from all others.

Sorry it is a little bit long winded. We will try to optimise this asap.
I have attached my test script which has this working, you can import it and copy the reaction mapping into your script.
