Device name conditional

Hello, I wondered if there is a way to program a conditional IF if the selected device is named as specific string before applying everything underneath? I have programmed Max 4 Live before and each device has a "system name" (usually similar to their display name, and is unchanged if user renamed it or not)

Example use case : A tailor-made device responsive control! Currently in a selected track and selected device, then I have to use "number" to refer to a parameter. Each device has its own parameters linearly assigned from number 1 onwards. And as a result for example, each device has its Dry/Wet parameter on a different number. If I could put an IF on outer level, then I could make Compressor's Dry/Wet on the same knob as Drum Buss's Dry/Wet. Of course I have to go and add IF exhaustively on every Live's built-in devices and maybe some of my VSTs but I would gladly do so.

Please see the attached image. I made it in Max 4 Live before finding out about Remotify. When I click on a specific device, the light would match the device's layout more intuitively. (So the Dry/Wet often lands on the bottom right corner, but not this one) I would love to remake this entirely in Remotify because I would like to utilize built-in effects more.

Also an option to not use the system name but a user-renamed name would be extremely useful for device group where user likely rename it. For example when I select my SFX Creative Effects device I would like my entire Twister to change to something very optimal to work with just this big device.

Hi,

Although this isn't currently possible with CSS, we are / will be working on improvements to the Reactions mapping type and will investigate the possibilities of controlling device parameters based on names rather than parameter numbers.
