Certain plug-ins don't allow parameters to be configured
- Live Versions: All
- Operating System: All
For most VST and AU plug-ins, Configure Mode works without problems. Some plug-ins, however, don't correctly notify Live about their parameters. Here are some potential problems and workarounds:
Certain plug-ins (such as Reaktor and Omnisphere, or BFD 2) use their own system of parameter configuration. In these cases, automatable parameters must be set up in the plug-in first and then can be automated in Live. To do this:
- Open the plug-in's 'Utility' menu (in the lower right corner of the plug-in window)
- Click 'MIDI Learn' → 'Enable Host Automation'
- Click any parameter in the plug-in GUI to enable it for automation
Certain plug-ins do not send specific messages (called “BeginEdit” and “EndEdit”) to Live. In these cases, try adding this line to your Options.txt file:
Please note that with this option enabled, plug-ins may need more time when switching presets.
Please refer to the following knowledge base article for more information about the Options.txt file.
Certain plug-ins send no automation information to Live. In these cases, there is currently no way to automate the plug-in parameters in Live.
Note: the last two problems are caused by an incorrect implementation of the plug-in. Please contact the developer of any affected plug-in and encourage them to fully support plug-in standards.
