Auto select and CUE the next scene in Ableton Live Session view

When using Scene Follow Action in Ableton Live the selection of scenes is not changing – you could say this is a missing feature which is crucial for running a setlist in session view and being able to trigger the next song or scene after a break or when a song ended. This Max for Live device will auto select and cue the next scene of the current playing.

Just drop it onto a MIDI track and set up a MIDI clip for every scene – DONE!

Please de-activate “Select Next Scene on Launch” in Ableton Live’s Preferences (-> “Record/Warp/Launch”) to have only the “Auto-Select and Cue Next Scene” device being in charge of scene selection.
