Ideas for a custom APC20 remote script

Post by SBRK » Wed Feb 09, 2011 10:33 pm

So, as you can see in my other topic (http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=158643) I've been fooling around with the remote script from the APC20, in order to get the Arm buttons having the shift mode and normal mode inverted. I could accomplish that thanks to Hanz Petrov's blog, and his sources of the APC20 scripts.

Seeing that he made an hybrid of APC20 and 40 scripts for the APC40, I had the idea of doing the opposite : pushing some APC 40 functionnalities to the APC20, like for example using the User 1 Bank as the "Device Control" section of the APC40.
I could directly put the tempo control with the Cue Level knob in the script, since I use it for that in my set.

Any other ideas ?

Device control would be the winner. Can you skip left amnd right through the devices or lock onto one on the APC20?

If not those are handy functions to have too.

Not yet (no blue hand when you select a device). I guess if I do device control, I'll have to find a way to change the selected device with the APC too... Maybe re-assigning track selection to shift arm buttons and device selection with shift + left/right ?

Worth a go. now you've got the hang of the scripting i think the possibilities are there for you to explore.

Would it be possible to invert the line/columns of the live view with a custom script ?
I'd like to have 5tracks*8clips instead of 5clips*8tracks on the launch grid.Something like this setup:

(but here it seems that you can't use the up/down/right/left buttons to navigate through the clips)


Thanks !
