And how do you use them?

I just wanna know what they are and how to use them...Not how to make my own. I'm assuming that they are pre mapped templates for your midi controllers knobs/pads/faders etc to integrate into different areas of Live? Is that what they are?

And also how do you use the Midi Remote Scripts? Do you drag them into the clip area or something?


thank you for any help!

You are correct at what they are. When you download one, they typically come with instructions on how to install them.

On a Mac, you find Live in your Applications folder, Right-click to "Show Package Contents", and then Contents/App-Resources/MIDI Remote Scripts. You put your downloaded Remote Script folder in there. Not sure how PC setup differs.

Then you select the scripts as a Control Surface in Live's preferences, and choose the corresponding MIDI device as the input/output device.

Good point! Remote scripts are the most powerful thing I'll never learn how to program myself, second only to Max4Live.

there's a page on making user remote scripts on my website. Ready made ones for sophisticated controllers eg ones with Automap, but for basic controllers you need to be making your own. I dunno about others, even with automap I had to devise a way for it to recognise different Live devices. I have a Nocturn with Automap, and a basic M-audio keyboard, and Live thinks I have 5 of them.
