Question Num4 as VST in Live

Before I bug Jim with what might be an ignorant question, or user error problem, has anyone had any luck getting Push to work with Numerology when Numerology is hosted in Live as a VST?

I have a very simple set up that I'm testing. One track with Diva; another track with Num4 (Build 122). When I add Numerology to the Live set, the Live Push mode appears as normal -- the grid lights up and "Nmrlgy" appears in the bottom left corner of the screen. However, when I switch to User mode, the screen flashes the "Welcome to Numerology on Push" for a second, and then the screen blanks out completely: no writing at all. I added a few modules, and still nothing.

It looks like the User mode template for Numerology is about to load and doesn't "bind" or "take."

Wanted to see if anything else was having a similar issue before bugging Jim!



Update: it seems that holding the User button for a bit longer than normal, but not so long as to trigger the User settings menu!, helps somewhat. The user mode doesn't consistently appear, however. it takes a few button presses of different lengths…maybe morse code entry?

Yes, that is pretty much how to do it. A few back and forth button presses. Holding down "user" then pressing "browse" after a combination of everything. I generally get it working after around a minute or so!

I've found that if you push the User button really fast, it doesn't 'take' -- i.e. Live keeps control.

In the next N4 build, I've changed Numerology to always think 'user' mode is on, and let Live do the switching (which it does) -- that seems to work better. In particular, that way N4 can't get confused about whether User mode is on or not -- there's actually no easy way to tell.
