    Is it possible (and I'm only really asking because I'm not at my desk to try for myself) to link more than one modulation to a dial on my midi keyboard within Ableton? Say for instance I want to automate the dry / wet of a chorus, size of a reverb and opening of a filter, and I want them to all move together at the same point. Is it possible for me to link all of them to a singular pot on my controller?

    Yeah, route each thing you want to mod to one of the macro knobs, then route that to your midi controller. You can also set how much of each variable you want to move, so you might want a subtle move on your filter, and a big movement on your reverb, done in the mapping mode.

    Yeahh indeed, the macro controls in the Ableton instrument rack makes my automation tasks so much easier. Throughout the years I've saved all kinds of instrument rack presets with my favorite plugins already mapped out to macros and to my MIDI controller. This saves me so much time doing all kinds of mapping and get me straight to the production process. No creativity killer anymore! :D
