So I just bought a CNTRL:R and I love the Live Remote Script. There's a few things in it I'd like to tweak, but one thing is driving me crazy.
I did some digging and found that the scripts are all in Python! This is fantastic news for me as Im a hobbyist programmer and python is the language I'm most comfortable in. That said, I'm still kind of overwhelmed by all the annotation-free scripts.
What I want to do is simply to remove the auto-mapping that the top 12 encoder buttons do. When you switch tracks or click a plugin, right now the encoder knobs all auto-assign to that plugin. By turning 'Track' on in Live, I've overwritten most of them, but the trouble is that when I focus a new track or plugin, the encoders' forget' where I am on the manually-assigned ones.
Example: I use one of them for a high-pass filter sweep. I'll be sweeping up when I'll click the track I'm mixing into to see where I am in that, and the filter encoder's LED rings disappear, and as far as the controller is concerned, the knob is back at 0. When I go to keep twisting it to continue the filter sweep, it jumps back down to 0 and the filter vanishes. Terrible sounding when I'm using it to effectively fade-out a song.
I thought changing takeover mode to pickup would help, but for some reason this doesn't work.
Anyway thanks for reading all my text! If anyone could even just let me know which python file to modify/delete, I'd be grateful!
