Loading presets via program change disables clip automation
I have the following problem with Audio Unit instruments: when I load presets using the bank select and program change properties of an ableton clip, automation for this clip gets disabled. I can reproduce this e.g. with TAL Bassline and Zebra2.
My hypothesis is:
1) Clip launches
2) Clip sends bank select and program change to plugin
3) Plugin loads preset, therefore triggering a change in many parameters
4) This change is interpreted by Live as a manual change. Therefore, automation is disabled.
This is a major bummer since you cannot combine preset loading and automation.
Any ideas for workarounds?
