Often I want a single button press to fire several Live parameters. For instance, I might want a button on the Launchpad to crank a send dial to the max, activate an effect device, and mute a track. Paraminator is the tool for the job.
In the top left corner are eight trigger buttons. Map those to your hardware controller using MIDI mapping or equivalent (Midimashinator or Launchpad Mashinator, for instance). When you press one of the trigger buttons, Paraminator checks the grid and wherever it finds a yellow node on the column below the trigger, it fires the parameter on the row to the right. In the image above, trigger 1 fires parameter 1. Trigger 2 fires parameter 2, and so on.
In the image below, trigger 8 fires every parameter (the column below trigger 8 has a yellow node on every parameter), and every trigger fires parameter 8 (row 8 has a yellow node below every trigger). You can customize the grid to fire any combination of parameters.
The Def. button sets the default nodes which is the diagonal distribution of nodes shown in the top image. The First button fills just the first column, and Clear removes all nodes from the grid. When you're working with the grid, note that you can click and drag to create or remove nodes.
The Paraminator also features a global/combo parameter at the bottom. When the C switch (on the bottom left) is turned off, the parameter is a global. When the C switch is on, the parameter is in combo mode. The global parameter is fired whenever any of the other buttons is fired. The combo parameter is fired only when the particular configuration of buttons (defined to the right of the C switch) is active.
If eight parameters aren't enough, you can use one Paraminator to link eight Paraminators. This gives you up to 64 parameters to play with. And if that is still too puny for your mighty controllerism routines, then you can use one of the eight linked Parminators as another master Paraminator and link 8 more Parminators. The mind boggles.
The Paraminator isn't very fancy, but it is a controllerist's work horse. Don't leave home without it.
