Midi Remote Scripts (Transport Buttons) ABLETON LIVE
« on: June 14, 2012, 06:50:21 pm »
Hi to all,

Here it is, an ableton template using the user remote scripts for ableton live to automap the controller transport buttons to the ableton's live Play, Pause, Record, Forward, Backward and Loop!

My setup is this:

Name               Mode       Channel            CC Number
Host Ctrl#1    Control       1                    52              Play
Host Ctrl#2    Control       1                    53              Stop
Host Ctrl#3    Control       1                    54              Rec
Host Ctrl#4    Control       1                    55              Bck
Host Ctrl#5    Control       1                    56              Fwd
Host Ctrl#6    Control       1                    57              Loop

And This is the User Remote Scripts:

Code: [Select]
# Config File for User-defined Instant Mappings

# We assume that the controls on your MIDI controller
# send CCs (except for pads). All controls that do not have
# an explicit channel setting are expected to use the
# global channel. CCs & Notes are counted from 0-127
# and channels from 0-15.

[Globals]
# The channel that the controller should send on
GlobalChannel: 0
# If your controller is connected via USB, replace ControllerName
# with the name of the respective port. Live will then try to
# recognize the ports for you when you select your Instant-Mappings
InputName: 0000.001d.0000.001.004.000.000.000.000
OutputName: 0000.001d.0000.001.004.000.000.000.000
# If your controller has pads that send notes, you can use them to
# play the visible pads in your DrumRacks. Just replace the -1 for
# the note (and channel) of the respective pad. The arrangement of
# the pads in the DrumRacks is as follows:
#   1     2     3     4
#   5     6     7     8
#   9    10    11    12  
#  13    14    15    16
# (If you leave the channel of a pad at -1, Live will assume that
#  the pad uses the global channel)

Pad14Channel: 15
Pad15Channel: 15
Pad-1Channel: 15

[DeviceControls]
# The Encoders will control the device parameters (you can also
# use knobs or sliders). Replace the -1's with the CCs sent by
# the respective controls on your controller. You can also set
# the channel for each controller if it differs from the global
# channel (if you leave the channel of an encoder at -1, Live
# will assume that the encoder uses the global channel).

# - Absolute
# - Absolute14Bit
# - LinearSignedBit
# - LinearSignedBit2
# - LinearTwoCompliment
# - LinearBinaryOffset
# - AccelSignedBit
# - AccelSignedBit2
# - AccelTwoCompliment
# - AccelBinaryOffset
# Consult the controller's documentation to find out which mode to use.

# Buttons used here are expected to not be toggles (i.e., sending
# value 0 every second time you press it).

[MixerControls]
# Again enter the appropriate CCs for the respective controls.
# If all sliders use the global channel to send their data,
# you can leave the channels at -1. You can, of course, use
# encoders or knobs instead of sliders.

In the attachment there is a ZIP file with MIDI Control Center template and the user scripts.
The user script folder The_Laboratory must be copied to:


On Windows Vista/Windows 7:

[Windows boot drive] > Users > [User Name] > AppData > Roaming > Ableton > Live 8.XX [your version] > Preferences > User Remote Scripts

On Mac:

[Library folder] > Preferences > Ableton > Live 8.XX [your version] > User Remote Scripts



Here it is a screenshot of the ableton prefs:

My setup is this:

Name               Mode       Channel            CC Number
Host Ctrl#1    Control       1                    52              Play
Host Ctrl#2    Control       1                    53              Stop
Host Ctrl#3    Control       1                    54              Rec
Host Ctrl#4    Control       1                    55              Bck
Host Ctrl#5    Control       1                    56              Fwd
Host Ctrl#6    Control       1                    57              Loop
...

Hi mauronedj,

I don't know much about remote script code and therefore I can't help you with this, but I recommend using Control Toggle for Host Ctrl #3 and #6 and maybe also for Host Control #4 and #5 because it makes much more sense to press those buttons once instead of holding them.

You can't hold the Record button while you record. Or do you play one handed?  ;)

You can find a table with the right settings for the Transport-/Sequencer-Buttons here.

Best regards,

Manuel

Hi Manuel,
as you can see I've edited the first post, I've solved all the problems so now the scripts is fully functional!

I've tested it and for the midi remote scripts the buttons are only recognized if they send simple control settings, the rec and the other buttons work in the right way!

The forward and backward buttons is not avaiable in the simple midi map way, they are one of the secret function of live, reached with this special scripts!


I've added the folder for the mac users to use this scripts in the first post!

This is totally unofficial, but I have all Ableton Live 9 python remote scripts sources. I didnít have any help from Ableton here, and I didnít ask help, by the way. I decompiled them, unmarshalling some part of codes etc.

Iíll modify them quite soon in order to improve and change some PUSH behaviors in next days/weeks. The first idea is : find the way that fits my needs the MOST!
