Topic: Tutorial for writing custom control surface scripts?
Replies: 59

For instance, on my Axiom49, the encoders are not mapped correctly to the macro's on Lives Racks/presets. You control the top left macro with the bottom left encoder. So, using this as an example, I could rescript? the CC messages to permanently fix this? You won't change the CC message being sent ...

hey, just a question: would automap let you use a not listed by Live midi controller as a "control surface" ? I don't believe so, the scheme is Device(USB port)->Automap(Internal)->MIDI; I'd imagine the hardware and Automap have some kind of handshake that's proprietary. It would be smoother than l...

I did a collect all and save and was going to just copy the "recorded" folder, but each sample has a generic name such as 001 1-Audio-1.aif. Do I have to rename each one individually? What's the best way to do this? Any input would be appreciated. Depending on how specific you want to get with the ...

Some features (basically all the ones I thought were interesting . . .) aren't active in the beta, they'll be included with purchase of Automap Pro. Someone on KVR said it will be a paid upgrade (₤20), which would be a little disappointing given that you don't usually have to pay to cut and paste or...

Now would be a good time to edit the link, and it would be especially dramatic for those brave enough to click.

How do they compare/contrast to the live effects? (to lazy to download demo. also do not want to get plugs and use in demo mode and then have a track I like and then be forced to buy them) Philosophically they've just got different aims. Ubhiks are intended to be botique-ish effects with a lot of t...

Replies: 59

I'm 50/50-ish on using presets in terms of building an arrangement for a track, not every element of sound design can be done before a lot of the elements are in so it's not worth micromanaging too much that early on. If a preset is as close to what I could get in a few minutes, that's fine, it will...

Good luck with this, I've been poking around LiveAPI a little bit this week, I'm not aware of any code out there that really handles devices well even though it's fairly evident that there are methods of doing things in there.

Someone posted this on KVR . . . http://music.metafilter.com/2943/Runnin-With-The-Songsmith I wonder how much the vocals on the promo video got processed, and if the software processes vocals. I'd check myself but I'm afraid my MIDI gear will spontaneously explode or I'll have seizures if I run this...

And I didn't understand: If it works, is it then possible to drag in one of abletons effects and have that properly assigned to nocturn's controls? Or do I have to use the learn function again?

As far as I'm aware, there are no small units that have a pitchbend / modwheel - I think one of the faderfoxes has a mini-joystick but the best pitchbend/modwheel controllers are pretty solid and fairly large (and attached to a keyboard . . .). I would like something like that. Of course a lot of th...

It will automate the orange bar in the [Sel] zone display, which functions a lot like a chain selector in a rack.
