How can I filter instrument rack macros to control only the devices pointed by the chain selector?

Hi! I'm currently working on a live-looping template for my apc40 and impulse 61 with Ableton 8. At the moment I setted up live in this way: each midi channel of my impulse is routing to a specific instrument rack containing all the sounds of a certain type (Pianos, Leads, Pads, drum kits etc), and then I switch trough them with the chain selector controlled by a specific midichan, and this is working great, also knobs and buttons are mapped in this way. But the problem is:

I want to live manipulate the sounds I'm currently playing, so I take 8 controls by my soft synths and midimap all of them to the 8 macros in the instrument rack, but in this way every change I make to the sound I'm currently playing reflects also on the other ones in the rack, messing up all my presets... So I need a sort of filter, because I want the macros to control only the device pointed by the chain selector, and not all the other ones... I think this is possible only with max, but I'm quite a nooby with it so if someone could suggest me something this would be very appreciated...

Excuses for the bad english...

    Same problem here... And the "chain selector filters midi control" option doesn't solve nothing for me... In fact, it looks like it has any effect you can notice.

    If someone could provide a filtering solution, I would be very pleased !

    Edit : I'm using Live Suite 9.2.2
