Ableton - Double macro automation recorded, keeps triggering re-enable automation toggle?
Is there a way to disable the double macro automation?
By that I mean, if you record macro knob movements in Ableton Live, the original knob automation also gets recorded TWICE, so they conflict with each other and it repeatedly resets the state. This makes it hard to use. Ableton describes this here.
I have not found a good workaround for this. I've tried deleting the individual knob automation (clear the whole lane) so that only the macro one fires.
- I load the Crazy Talk preset.
- I record and move Macro 8 - Mouth.
- I look and see both "Talk Wah Wah" (the component) AND "Macros Mouth" have automation recorded.
It gets more tricky when multiple knobs are mapped to a macro, too.
BUT then, and more confusing, if "Automation Arm" is on, then it'll write more automation while I'm recording to other tracks. Even if I FREEZE that track.
Usually with other plugins, individual control automation is disabled is a macro is overriding them.
So unless there's a better way, I need to write automation using individual non-macro knobs, it seems.
Could this can be considered a bug to be fixed?
