More than 8 parameters?

I have a controller that has 32 encoders and I would like to be able to use most them to control device parameters. There is currently a limit of 8 in remotify. Is there any plan to add more or is this a limitation of remote scripts?

Hi there, The 8 limitation is something imposed by Ableton's own API. We have tried to get around this once before but were unsuccessful. However, it is a priority to us, so hopefully we can get a workable solution together in the near future. John

If u want to control the parameters of more than one device at a time, you can use more than 8.
Track Type: Selected
Encoder 1-8 for Device 1
Encoder 9-16 for Device 2
Encoder 17-24 for Device 3
Encoder 25-32 for Device 4 or selected device
