Hi again :)

I have been searching and decompiling push python scripts before realizing that they just changed the files location :)
skin_default.pyc is in "pushbase" folder now and not in "push" folder anymore.

I modified a bit the .py file I created from here, copied it to pushbase folder and it worked like before :)

I don't know if they made any modifications to that file structure so i don't know if your old .py file is working yet. ( I m making myself a new push with some new colors by the way :) )

I will also try to investigate for new RGB colors :)

Thanks for reading and i'll inform asap :)

Would it be possible, using code from the Push2 folder, to allow the color palette to be determined by the armed track?

On Push 2 all of the colors on the device come from whatever track is active at the time.

Also, Jesse from Ableton said in another thread they expect more changes coming to the python scripts shortly, so people might want to wait a bit before they start hacking.

Yeah it would not be possible to have the track color on many things on Push 1 mainly because of the screen.

Maybe it is possible to have a nice behavior with white pads for scale notes and track color pads for base notes. It should be possible to recuperate the track color like on the session view and to initiate base notes color with it when displaying instrument note view. It would require a bit of investigation :D

By the way i will give a link to the file i made for Push 1 custom colors if it can please someone.

I saw what Jesse said but decompiling is not that of a deal :)

What are you using to decompile scripts out of interest. I see julien has uploaded the 0.5 versions to his github. I have checked out the pushbase skin_default.py from there and changed my push1 colours using this.

Thank you for pointing that i did not see :)

So for push 1 users who want to have their favorite colors with live 9.5 back below is the link to get the skin_default.py original file to modify and copy in the pushbase folder. Don't forget to save and backup the pushbase folder before doing anything. And while manipulating push and live you may take care of having push selected in the midi preferences.

just use the skin_default.py in pushbase

i changed the pulsing startscene-selection to red
the notegrid to blue, the noteindicator to white and the rootnote to orchid.

what was not working is to change the startscene-selection to orchid
because for this colour is no biLED in the colour.py and i am too lazy
to figure out how to add this.

what really would be usefull for stacks is
to colour the scales of the stacks in a symetric way

woud be greate if we could just colour the noterange
in the rack and reflect this on the grid...
but what happens with overlapsing stacks ?

oooh its working now, file was badly named skindefault instead of skin_default :oops:
Those white pads are just killing my creativity when I'm looking at them, blue is much better, don't know why ableton won't set it as default.
