Fixed: Obelisk not working in Ableton Live

So when using the Frozen Plains Obelisk plugin in Ableton live 10 (I’m running10.1.15) following Frozen Plains instructions doesn’t work.
If you change the 2nd drop down on the synth/instrument track to Obelisk64 instead of Pre FX then it will work.

Additionally, if you don’t want record a whole extra midi track for the Obelisk track then instead of arming both track, just set to Obelisk track to In on the monitoring and then arm the instrument you want to record. This has the added benefit of being able to easily have multiple instruments using Obelisk and switch to record on whichever one you want to play

Ideal Obelisk and instrument settings.
Obelisk midi track set to monitor In.
Two different mini instrument tracks set to Obelisk64 instrument In and Obelisk64 instead of Pre FX or Post FX. One instrument track armed.

Bordering On Obsession Released!

Over the summer I took part in a song writing game/mission with other songwriters on the web and one of the resultant songs that came out of the exercise was Bordering on Obsession, a song about lost loves, aspirations and self examination.
In the wasteland that is the gameified app dating scene obsessing over looks, both your own and other peoples, and casually swiping your way thru an endless sea of fish you’ll never catch is all the more a horrid obsession fueling activity.
