Yamaha 01X / Live Emulation

Post by chris_dan » Tue Sep 12, 2006 11:43 pm

I'm attempting to use the 01x and mouse to control all the parameters that I use in Live. Needless to say, vendor supplied controller emulations for the 01x are far and few between if you know what I mean.

I'm using Bome's Midi Translator to do the mapping. Midi-ox is another good midi tool but Bome's has the smoother interface as far as midi mapping is concerned. I just got into the live 6 beta circle and I do recall reading that Live 6 has a midi mapping function...once I get through the veritable plethora of new features in L6 I look at that as well. See http://www.bome.com/ for Midi Translator. If your interested I've posted a few of the files that I have been working on to accomplish the above task. You'll find 2 files that pertain to Midi Translator...one is the actual .bmtp file and the other is just a graphic of what the MT interface looks like. You can open the .bmtp file with notepad but you'll need MT to make things happen. MT is available as postcardware FYI. I've still got a number of additions that I want to add but it will give you an idea of what can be done. The items that you were looking for could easily be added.

I've also included a couple of pictures of a keyboard that I found at my local computer clearing house. The product is made by a company called Blaze and it's less that $20 CDN. It's both "cute" and functional. My audio workbench (Amiga rules!) contains both my laptop, desktop and 01x. The standard keyboard for my desktop was dead weight as far as Live is concerned. I wouldn't want to type a 50 page document with it though.

Oh yeah...the link to the above files is http://home.golden.net/~chris.

Hope it helps........
