and ALSO
modified PUSH script mod that adds the following:
- Allows Drum Mode to work on Drum Racks that are nested inside of Instrument Racks.
This will apply to the first nested Drum Rack.
- Allows step-sequencer input to be velocity-sensitive so that steps turned on will have the velocity that the corresponding button sent.

good man! Care to do a write up about what aspects of the push scripts you modified?

Cool! Now if only I had my hands on a PUSH :D

I love the fact that the product hasn't even officially shipped yet and its already getting hacked and modified. This type of community offerings is one of the reasons I chose Ableton over other DAWs.

The script being talked about here is for the Launchpad though, right?

I was referring to the modified PUSH script.

Awesome! These are the very two things that I was wishing for with Push before even getting it! Nice!

Thanks for spreading the word, 3dot.

Also, just for the sake of clarity, virtually any controller can emulate Push. Instructions and docs are available in the 3rd link 3dot posted.

There really isn't much to it. For the first modification, the script only looked for Drum Racks that weren't nested, so I simply modified it to check inside of Instrument Racks. For the second modification, the script ignored velocity from the pads used to activate steps and strictly used a default velocity (100) or accented velocity (127). I modified it so that the velocity from the pads isn't ignored and the default velocity is never used. For the technically-minded, the modifications I posted are *.py files, so you can take a look and see how I did these things. Changes I made are all commented.

Thanks Metastatik, i grokked what you did, just wasnt sure which of the .py files you actually modified for this. I'll just dig through them looking for your comments then.

There's just two *.py files in the zip I posted.

Push.py - Contains the changes related to Drum Racks in Instrument Racks.
NoteEditorComponent.py - Contains the changes related to step-sequencer velocity. You'll also notice that this has some changes related to assertions as I couldn't get Live to compile it with the original assertions in place.

Whoa, I guess I have been mixing up accented notes with ghosted notes.. it would be more helpful for me to place notes that have a velocity of like 70-80 to achieve ghost notes, and that is what I assumed accented notes were :oops: .. Well with this mod I guess I can do that can't I? just hit the pad softly when punching in my notes!

Thanks again for all your hard work, can't wait to get my Push! But I don't need to because I can use the APC40 to emulate! WUUUUT, so dope!

as usual: you are the best
just one question: do you already own push?
