Mapping a macro resets its value to zero, any workarounds?

This is a pretty minor complaint but whenever I map a macro in a rack, the value of the parameter resets to zero, so I have to change it back to the value it was initially at. For example, say I wanted a filter cutoff mapped to a macro and its cutoff was set in the perfect place, mapping that to a macro for ease of use/performance later would immediately reset it to 20 Hz or whatever.

There are forum posts about it dating to 2009 so it's not a new issue, I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips for how to work around this so I don't have to re-set some often finicky parameter values. Thank you!

    Hi, yes you can use the option.txt file to implement a feature that the mapped Parameter are mapped with the actually value ... Lock at option.txt Features live 9 .

    you can also edit your midi mappings and set max/min values for each individual parameter the macro is controlling. the macro resets the value to zero because it is taking over for the instrument/effect/etc that you're modulating and it needs to allow itself full range of motion (0-127). you can invert the max and min so turning the macro up turns the parameter down, etc. there are a number of ways to find the value of the parameter, then just set values accordingly. there are excellent tutorials on youtube for this

    So there is no way to do that ? Is there a max for live device that could do it. I keep looking everywhere because i really need this feature for my workflow but I can't find anything. I'm not a programmer by any mean, but it seems a pretty easy feature to implement.

    I would love to be able to map macros during composition without losing the actual value of the mapped cc... the hint manipulating the option.txt is a good idea but ...what should I paste in there?
