Automation Recorder

Record parameter automation from any Ableton Live control device (LFO, Envelope, Envelope Follower etc) to a MIDI track or MIDI clip. Movement of _every_ knob that is mapped can be recorded.

Usage: put Automation Recorder ‘between’ the knob you want to automate and control device of your choice. Load Automation Recorder to a MIDI track and map it to device parameter you want to automate using Automation Recorder ‘Map’ button, then map the big ‘Map Me’ dial from the control device. While the knobs are moving press ‘Record’ or ‘Session Record’ buttons to start recording the automation to a MIDI track/clip. After the recording is done you can disable Automation recorder and the control device and manually edit the recorded automation if needed.

In the Automation recorder GUI you can set mapping’s Min and Max value range and specify the rate of the recorded automation in milliseconds (the bigger is this value, the more stepped is the recorded automation and vice-versa).

Automation Recorder was tested to work in Ableton Live 9.7.5/Max 7.3.4 and Ableton Live 10.1 beta/Max 8.0.3 (macOS Mojave).
