Save midi mappings in plug in preset ?

Hi there 

Maybe I'm overseeing something ... 


When you change midi mapping settings is there a way to store them in that plug in setting when you save that plug in ?


I have some presets with changed values for Beat Repeat but when I reload them in another track I have to reset the Midi mappings again ...

I thought this was stored when you save the group or plug in itself but it doesn't .


Any help on this would be greatly appreciated .

    seems a much needed setting to have unavailable within Live.

    if you're mapping a VST directly you can't save the map settings within the VST but if you drop your VST into instrument rack and map to the macros you can save the instrument rack and those mappings will be saved as well. I have many instances of Fm8, massive etc mapped to instrument rack macros that open without issue all the time. the same goes for audio effects rack if you're not using instruments. I don't know how many parameters you're trying to map but the 6 macros should provide plenty of flexibility

    ALL above is incorrect.


    Open an Instrument rack

    drop for example arturia jupiter 8 into it

    Map all your settings using configure 

    Save the instrument rack as Jupiter 8 mapped.

    Now add new midi track, open your Jupiter 8 mapped instrument rack file you have just created. Everything works. I have mapped all my plugins like this for use with Push 2.


    Your welcome

    No, you have to map the set each time usually.

    I have never done this, but you could try to create a set with just the plugin inside of it, map that plugin, then drag that track into each set that you are working on. It might work, i have just never tried it.

    Hey, So I'm still a rookie at this but if I understand your question correctly this is what I did. I just selected the entire midi clip, went to the midi clips box on the right and dragged the clip to a folder on the left I titled presets. Then it created a .als file and i dragged that file to an empty midi clip line and had a saved replica of my midi clip.

    not possible as of now using devices (adg). I'm also very interested in a solution to this issue.

    Hi, you overseeing nothing, all is corect . Thats Live, Ableton Live 8 or 9 both can't do it..
    Its hard to believe but its normal,
    its a complett missing part in Live
    & in a workflow with VST total time cosuming process again and again and not user friendly

    other programs master this task with Sharm like Bit wig.

    Best regard
