I posted a thread in the help section but it may be more appropriate to post here:

Can somebody help me understand how to do what this guy did in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YE78r2MEtjY I know you download a script from remotescripts.blogspot.com (which I dont know) and tweak some of the code then put it into a folder for ableton but I don't understand python so im not clear what to change to map my apc40 similar to this. Also when he mentions "having 4 audio and 4 return tracks in ableton..thats it." Can someone explain why you have to do that.

He mentions going to his site but there's nothing helpful there. Thanks to anyone who can help!

You can continue to use the arrow keys to move past 125 scenes, sequentially or by bank, you just won't have the zoom-out banking selection beyond that. We argued long and hard over how to address this, and went for the way that makes the most intuitive sense: 64 tracks by 125 scenes.

With Max for Live, you could switch this to 200 scenes by 40 tracks, 1250 scenes by 8 tracks, but while all these modes are useful for some users, they are much more confusing in terms of how they are laid out. We went for the most common/easiest to understand method here.

how can having only 5 or 6 songs is the most intuitive, i don't get it, what if i need to go from scene 40 to scene 800 to switch song? i need to go down 5 by 5 for 10 minutes?

Yeah, have you checked to make sure you are running the Live 8.2.5 version of the script? Hanz updated it to match the new Live update.

[EDIT - crap, I see that Ableton is now version 8.2.6. Possibly you have the 8.2.5 or earlier remote script and the latest Live version, and that's where the problem is? (Changes to the framework can affect scripts).

I created a custom APC-40 template for DJing with Ableton aaaages ago, but been so slack at getting it online, I really need a kick up the ass so if anyone is interested in checking it out send me a message, would love to get some peoples feedback before I make it official.

It has loads of effects, instant looping (similar to traktor) and a ton of other stuff.

Hi! I have a very large Ableton file with many, many rows of clips... going from top to bottom with the shift + bank select buttons doesn't go fast/easy enough and so I was wondering if it'd be possible to map the cue level knop to scroll the bank select up and down through my ableton file (without max for live)?


Hi mate, not sure if you still need this, but the custom midi template I created for Ableton does exactly this if you are interested. Drop me a message.

Help! I accidentaly unplugged my APC40 and it damaged physically the usb port. I would like to open the unit with a screw driver but there is a sticker that says : risk of electric shock do not open. It is really dangerous of is it just a thing to avoid trial? (or both!)

its just there for legal reasons, if it's unpugged from the AC there shouldnt be any residual current in there as there is no tubes or transformers inside

:(

any help appreciated


which version of 64-40 do u use? as far i remember he updated this script after 825, cause it was incompatible with the "new" version.
im running 833 with the latest 64-40 and it works fine. except the extra-modi of trackcontroll-knobs are sometimes buggy, so i dont use it. but even this never crashed the whole live, it only dosnt work as expected (sometimes the wrong modi, no way back, etc.).

download an actuell version, delete the other one and try again.

Gltich Factory (mrbill and will marshal) APC 40 question-

Im using the above template, want to know if you can cue tracks up with this template? (eg, cue up tracks in the headphones, before sending to master out)

I ask here as I only have a 2 in 2 out sound card wich does not facilitate cueing, so I need to know if this function is available on this template before buying a 2 in 4 out soundcard.

thanks in advance!

No, it's ironic.

WTF this "firmware erase" trick is at the top, 1st page ?

For clever guys like me, who despite being skeptical and +/- clever, also have moments of extreme LORD-Moron-to_rule_over_morons behavior ...

like checking if it's a joke, because damn, Akai pro, the tip isn't quoted anywhere but here in fact and btw

SHIT, APC40 DEAD :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Hey,

i'm new to APC40 and have a problem with it. Everything seems working fine but when i push "Shift" and "Bank Select" down button to get to the bottom of the Session View and when letting that button go it's automatically goes back to the top. It' happens everytime i push Bank Select down button. Would be thankful for any tip couse it's making me going nuts.

I'm working on Ableton 9.0.4
Thanks
