ForumsSoftware ← Kaivo Patch resets to "a" in Ableton Live 11 on Windows 10


Apologies if this has already been posted but my browse of the forums didn't reveal the exact same issue.
My issue is that if I select a patch in Kaivo, it will play until Ichange locations in the DAW timeline, in which case it resets to a patch labelled "a." Returning the DAW to the location where I selected my patch does not reinstate that patch. Basically, the only patch that can be used for longer than a few seconds is labelled "a."
Any help is appreciated.



It sounds like you are selecting a patch via a MIDI Program Change message. By putting patches in the ".../Madrona Labs/Kaivo/MIDI Programs" folder you make an alphabetical list of patches that the plugin switches to when it gets that message. So: a.mlpreset for Program 1, b for 2 and so on. It doesn't have to be "a" and "b", whatever the patches are in the in alphabetical order will be loaded.

So, Kaivo is getting a Program Change. Maybe you are in Ableton and have a Program Change message set for the clip? More info here:

Hi Randy,

Thanks for the quick reply. Program change data was in fact the cause of the patch switching issue. I deleted that unnecessary program change data and now things are working perfectly.

Thanks again!
