MIDI Remote Scripts - Introduction to the Framework Classes

Post by Hanz_Petrov » Mon Mar 15, 2010 8:27 pm

Hello all,

These forums have been a great source of knowledge to me, so I thought I'd try to give back by putting together a short introduction to MIDI remote scripting, using the new Framework classes.

Enjoy,

Hanz

this is fantastic. Really thorough intro with documentation too! I'm trying to convert user 2 of a launchpad to being an instant mapping device controller. Any clues to what framework module i should use. No worries if this is too big an ask- the hunt will be good for me. Cheers!

oddstep,

I suspect that you'd really need to examine the launchpad scripts, and create a custom version which suits your needs. Unfortunately, the launchpad scripts are rather complex and make extensive use of custom classes which build on the Framework base classes.

Alternatively, you'd have to create your own scripts to handle some or all of the functionality you're looking for. Might be possible to load a custom script on top of the built-in scripts (although I'm not sure how Live decides which script to listen to, when it gets the same MIDI data from two control surfaces using the same input). By the way, Novation has published a programmers reference guide, which could be useful:

Best of luck,

Let me preface my question by saying I'm awful at computer languages. They're slowly making more sense to me, but I wanna run before I walk.

Does anyone know if it would be possible to use two devices in conjunction with each other with the same script? For instance, I'd like to get my Launchpad and my Kore controller to function as one. If I press a button on the launchpad, the focus shifts on the Kore controller.

Thanks for your help!

I know this is very late, but try the LPC Live 2 template from NativeKontrol, gives you all the necessary control you need on the launchpad and you can still keep the native user 1 and user 2 mode active.
