I want to hook up two Nanokontrol2 controllers - ideally, once remapped, together they'd emulate certain functions of my APC 40.
I'm looking for someone to help me write a custom script for this.
I tried the MapEase
series - it worked well for some functions, but can't help with remapping the nanokontrol2's Rec/Mute/Solo pads to emulate clips slots, which is one of my key goals.
i basically use the APC 40 like a real-time live recorder for looping & layering guitar/bass/synths etc. My focus at live gigs is playing the instruments, and my laptop is off to the side and not really visible, so my controller needs to be laid out in a way that makes sense so I can stay focused.
- Nanokontrol2 #1
: all 3 rows of buttons to work as clips slots w/ lights ON / OFF when active/empty.
Track 8 for scene launch and its fader is Master Vol.; a few other functions mapped to available buttons on the nano.
- Nanokontrol2 #2
- the other things i use mapped to the nano 2... see attached image.
I tour alot, and the APC40, while solid and dependable, is too large.
I've done alot of research on controllers.
Launchpad is not ideal, i need real faders, and it's larger than I need, layout is not intuitive.
Nanopad : buttons don't light up.
Livid stuff is beautiful, but large, and really expensive.
Vestax PAD-One only has 6 buttons across and no faders. I need all 8 across (9 would be better, like the older nankontro, for scene launch + master fader)
Same goes for the Akai LPD8, but even more limited w/ pads to map clip slots to.
Not going for Push/Live 9 yet.
I thought the 2 nanos, once scripted, seemed ideal.
instead of writing it all out, i made a diagram of how it could be mapped. Hopefully this makes it easier to understand.
The Green sections on the attached image of the APC40 are the only functions I use.
Totally open to ideas and input. I am new to scripting and thought to reach out to the community for ideas. Thanks for your consideration!
