I just tried out the color picker one and I think this might very well be one of the most useful m4l push plugs to date!

Yeah, liking this device. But I often seem to get stuck in the colour-chooser mode, unable to revert back to any other mode. Can't replicate now, at work, but can test tonight. Anyone else getting stuck with the multi-coloured display to choose from?

Glad to read, I guess even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. :)

This happens when you release the Select button before releasing the Add Effect/Add Track button. To get back to the default mode just press Select + Add Effect/Add Track again and make sure you release Select after releasing Add Effect/Add Track.

I'm working on the device right now and will have an eye on it.

Actually I rewrite a big part of the device because I made some poor decisions early on. During this process I finally took the time to build a patcher which might be of interest for aspiring Push m4l developers:

-----------end_max5_patcher-----------
The interesting part is the "p GrabReleasePushControl" patcher, a universal Push control handler. Send the path id of Push into the right inlet, grab a control by sending "grab [control name]" to the left inlet, send messages to the control object through the middle inlet and release the control by sending "release [control name]" to the left inlet. From the left outlet you get the value the control is sending when grabbed, the right outlet gives you the output of the messages to the control object.

The patcher makes sure that you only get a value from the control when it's actually grabbed. It also filters out the messages you send through the middle inlet if the control isn't grabbed.

Please write me a feedback if you find something to optimise.

Just uploaded Push Color Picker 1.1. Setting the color for all the clips in a scene and the scene itself is now possible. Beside that a lot changed under the hood. E.g. I added an observe routine to "p GrabReleasePushControl" (see above for details) for cases where I need to observe a control but don't want to grab it.

The color picker is great ! I always thought you should be able to choose the color of your clip from push when creating clips... Thank you, this is really useful

This happens when you release the Select button before releasing the Add Effect/Add Track button. To get back to the default mode just press Select + Add Effect/Add Track again and make sure you release Select after releasing Add Effect/Add Track.
I didn't looked into your device yet, but if you use "pak" and not "pack" before going into your "if" object (I suppose, maybe I should first have a look at your patch!!! ), you won't have this problem.

Because789 - thanks again, simple and very useful devices. It's working as expected now (user error before pertaining to the colour picker).

The color picker is really cool. I'm wondering if it is possible to do this with drum/instrument racks?

The eb-touchstrip-crossfader does just what the name implies...maps the touch strip to the crossfader...very useful for me.

Possible without M4L (for Push 2)

Oh Ya, thanks, I saw that but am looking for my Push 1. So far they have kept this functionality exclusive to push 2. My 1 is still in great shape and I don't really see the need to upgrade, but it would be nice if they supported a few of the new things with the push 1.

Nice sequencer and free.
But....
I can't record midi notes from this sequencer onto a track. Is that normal? What am I missing?
I load it on midi track, for sound I loaded Battery 3 and it plays notes and recording leaves empty track?

The search in Ableton gives no results ...

If you want to record notes to a clip simply create a MIDI track and set it's input to be the output from the Kepler track, this is the same process for all MaxforLive sequencers.
