Control single VST based on selected track - Possible with Remotify?

Hi,

I need a way in Ableton that I can use to control a specific plugin from a MIDI controller based on the selected track. So when I select a track my MIDI device will automatically control the VST instance on that track, is this possible with this software please?

Many thanks,
Bill

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your question. You can't currently select a device based on name, but you can control a specific device number on the selected track. The device number being its position in the device chain.

I hope this helps.

Hi John,

Many thanks for your response.

I don't think that is going to work for me as this plugin will always be the last on the track, and there could be any number of plugins in between. Do you have any plans to implement selecting a plugin my name, if this is even possible?

Cheers,
Bill

Hi Bill,
Yes it is possible but requires quite a bit of custom functionality in order to achieve. We will be investigating this along with updates to our 'reactions' mapping type which we have in the pipeline, I can't say when this will be available though sorry.
