Launchpad95: Instrument, Scales, Step Sequencer, Device Ctrl

Post by mots » Wed Aug 17, 2011 6:23 pm

Hi folks,

Looking at what is available for editing midi clips on the launchpad, i could not find exactly what i was after.
So i put some energy in improving the existing Python scripts for the launchpad and added a step sequencer in the mix !
As this wasn't enough I also added a Device Controller. I also Recently added an Instrument Controller aiming at replacing the user mode 1 (plain old user mode 1 is still available as sub mode of the user mode 1 button).

You can download the package there :
http://motscousus.com/stuff/2011-07_Nov ... hpad95.zip (Launchpad, S and Mini. MK2 RGB supported)
http://motscousus.com/stuff/2015-12_Nov ... _Pro95.zip (Launchpad Pro)

The documentation is available at : http://motscousus.com/stuff/2011-07_Nov ... e_Scripts/
and here for the Pro : http://motscousus.com/stuff/2015-12_Nov ... e_Scripts/

for the coders out there, i try to maintain an up to date version of the code on github :
https://github.com/hdavid/Launchpad95
https://github.com/hdavid/Launchpad_Pro95

i also opened a slack channel so that developers that want to join the effort can. feel free to request access: https://launchpad95.slack.com/messages/general/

feel free to comment, test, bug report ! have fun with it !

Henri

nice!

The only thing I spotted that if I have two bars I can actually only scroll to first 3 sets of 16th notes instead of 4.

For the rest very useful,

Thanks for doing this. Really cool. I might use this instead of Numerology some day, if it gets more similar. :) (would be glad to pay for a similar version btw)

thanks! :)

i don't own live 7 to give it a shot. There are some differences that will prevent it from running (in the _Framework package that ableton provides as interface to live api).

you can try it, but don't give it too much hope. :/

Hi all,

I've been working on my script for the Novation launchpad and added a device controller to it ! it allows you to edit the parameter of any live device on any track of your arrangement.

of course the step sequencer is still in mix !

you can get the instructions and download the package from there :

feel free to report comment and bug.

cheers

Probably a long shot....

But I'd LOVE a script that changes the 8*8 grid matrix on the main page to a 8*7 grid matrix that has the mute on/off for each track on the last row. I know this it possible with Max4Live but it seems so much easier and efficient to have it done via python scripting.....

Any insight into how I can do this? I've looked for the original python script online but can't find it anywhere....

Thanks!

you can find the orginal 7.0.14 scripts there : http://remotescripts.blogspot.com/p/support-files.html
http://hanzoffsystems.tech.officelive.c ... 7.0.18.rar

the original APC40 step sequencer i based my script on had such feature. i would not go for 8*7 matrix has it is quite an uncommon signature, but rather use the side buttons for this in a special mode.
