Unable to undo more than one step at a time

  • Live Versions: 8.1 - current
  • Operating System: All

Certain Max for Live devices use the "Auto-Dice" function (“Buffer Shuffler” is one such device). This creates many undo steps in the undo history. This makes it difficult to undo any other actions in a set.

The “Auto-Dice” function randomizes all steps (“live.grid” objects). As the live.grid objects are bound to Live's undo function, each change in these grids will add to the undo history.

Example solution

  • Open the Max for Live device editor.
  • Right-Click on one of the live.grid objects and select “Inspector”.
  • Set the “Parameter Visibility” option from “Stored Only” to “Hidden”.
  • Repeat this step with the other live.grid object.
  • Save the Max device, ideally under a different name.
