This M4L midi device lets you save your Behringer Neutron patches as presets in Ableton Live and also gives you access to the extra parameters/settings found in the official Neutron app (since firmware v2.0, which you need for this device to fully work). In other words in acts like a plugin version of the Neutron app.
Knobs are just visual elements, they act like a patch memo/sheet.
Buttons and menus control your hardware via midi (but it's one way only i.e your hardware doesn't control the M4L device) and are automatable and saved too.
The device automatically connects to your Neutron so you don't need to set your midi track output to your Neutron to control it. As a result you can directly put an External Instruments behind it and have everything in a single track.
On Windows, you might need to use a dedicated midi track for this device though (and set its output to your Neutron via the track output chooser).
When loading a saved preset of this device, click the "Dump" button to send its settings to your Neutron. I've intentionally avoid this to be automatic in order to avoid inadvertently screwing up your current settings.
Make sure to activate "Neutron" midi ins and outs in Live's midi preferences.
Just point your mouse over a parameter to know what it is doing.
The little cross next to each knob is to visually bypass them, to e.g reminding you that this parameter isn't used or important in your preset.
You can save presets/variations of your patch within the device (the squares on the left side).
I've omitted a few less important options (imho) from the official Neutron app, but I could add them in a future update if asked.
I've tried to make the device as ugly as the synth, but I'm colourblind so please excuse any bad UI choice.
(Update: I've just noticed after plugin my Neutron to another computer that, for an unknown reason, it was not anymore referenced as "Neutron" in my midi preferences but as "Neutron(1)". It means I needed to tweak my patch. If you're observing such thing please let me know).
Ableton Live 10 minimum. Make sure you're using Max 8.0.2 minimum (otherwise you might not see the oscillators' big knobs correctly)
I consider 3€ to be a fair price but you can grab it for free by using the "free" discount code (first enter 3 on this page, and then the discount code on the next page) when ordering, or pay more than 3€ if you want.
