Re: DIY Ableton foot controller build thread!

In regard to electronics experience; I had pretty much NONE before I started this project. I had to learn to solder (and solder VERY precisely!); I did a lot of research and tried many dead ends when figuring out how to attach the aftermarket footswitches to the keyboard controller card. The projec...

Re: DIY Ableton foot controller build thread!

And eleven seconds and one search later, this post here, I believe, is what you're referring to. Ta.

Re: DIY Ableton foot controller build thread!

Ah cool, I'm not completely off the planet then :D

I'll try and track down some references to it to further nut it out.

Re: DIY Ableton foot controller build thread!

Here's a crappy diagram of what I'm talking about: http://lh3.ggpht.com/_dBm5d2z3wmo/SvOVzatuigI/AAAAAAAAAJc/vBYTyDTF1Uw/keyboardcontroller.JPG The black lines are the outside box, the grey lines are the keyboard within, the red lines are some sort of connector (like some pretty solid wire) to actua...

Re: DIY Ableton foot controller build thread!

This is a really interesting thread, and I'm dying to try it out. However, I'm not that confident with the electronics side of things, although general hardware and construction I can hold my own (I built a nice foosball table a few years back). With that in mind, how about this for an alternative i...

Hey Tone, I got it working! I pasted in your text version into a new patcher and made a new collective. Followed the instructions and it all works reasonably well. Lots of fun it is too. :D The only issue I have is that my midi keyboard's single pedal which I'm using as my stomper seems to send out ...

Ok, I've had a reply on the MaxMSP forum that in XP the window opens up really low on the screen. I've sneakily just installed it on an old laptop at work to check this and I can verify that this is the case, although you can drag it back into view. I don't think this happens on OSX, because on OSX ...

Thanks Mike. Yeah that'd be great if you could put the file up in another format, like just the .pat file or something...? From what I've read, the collective just bundles together the .pat file with its dependencies, which theoretically makes it easier to transport, but obviously in this case my ma...

Yep, I've tried with the 4.6.3 runtime and also with the 4.6.3 full version running in trial mode. i.e. these two http://cycling74.com/download/maxmspruntime463.dmg http://cycling74.com/download/maxmsp463.dmg I've also tried their previous versions with the same effect. I don't need the SDK as far a...

Does anyone have any of the other versions of this patch file? There are mentions of a StompLooper_1_0_5.mxf earlier in this thread, but the only one that seems to be available is the 1_0_3 version (http://alexisforge.co.uk/StompLooper_1_0_3.mxf). I'm now convinced that this file has to be corrupted...

Sorry to be the bumping kind, but this problem is really infuriating. I simply can't open the patch in MaxMSP, and I don't get any errors whatsoever. Am I missing anything? I'm just running MaxMSP and then doing a File/Open, but when I select the file, I get nothing, meaning MaxMSP is still open, bu...

Hi, I'm really interested in getting this set up, and have downloaded MaxMSP and your StompLooper_1_0_3.mxf file, but when I run Max and open the file, nothing happens. I'm left with a seemingly happy application, but what looks like just an empty text area in Max. I can open the Max samples and the...

Yeah, but surely other people have run into this problem haven't they? I don't remember reading that the EIC was a requirement in the magazine, and I would have thought they would have included a self-contained tutorial set for the purposes of following along. Anyway, if the EIC is needed then ok, I...

Running the tutorial Live Sets

I have a technical question regarding the files on the CD. I load up the Tutorial's Live Set called ReadyToArrange.als (excuse mistakes in the filename, I'm at work now and can't remember the exact filenames), but I get a few errors about Audio Units not being found, and then it says (on the right-h...
