by John Carney last updated Jul 03, 2018

Remotify is pleased to announce the release of Session Box 2.0, a collection of free updates designed to improve how users can integrate and control session boxes with their hardware.


Combination Mode

Use the all new combination mode options to link session boxes together from multiple midi remote scripts and move them as one unified controller.

Custom LED Feedback

Add a selection of custom LED feedback colours for 10 different session box related options. (beta)

Individual Midi Message Button Options

Each individual button in a session box now has options for its own Channel, CC/Note, type and momentary selection. Leaving them blank will use the ‘default’ options set in the ‘midi controller values’ box.

Session Box Requirements Removed

The requirement to add all session box elements (clip launch, scene launch, track stop and stop all) has been removed. Users can now just use the elements of the box they require and leave the others blank.

Session Box Navigation Update

Session box navigation now has the extra option to move in any direction by 1 clip at a time or by page (the width/height of the session box).

Offset Options

Use the new ‘offset’ options to set the starting location of a session box when the script first loads and also when switching to a new mode.

Increased Maximum Session Box Size

The maximum size of session boxes have been increased to 16 width (in tracks) and 16 height (in scenes) of session boxes.

The new ‘duplicate’ UI button allows users to quickly duplicate multiple session boxes (and any other mapping type) containing the same midi messages.

"If you’re new to scripting in Ableton, this tool is a must.

It will not only save you a massive headache, but also allows you to learn how it works as you go since Remotify also gives you an uncompiled “.py” version of the files so you can have a look at the code.

This app will make basic mapping tasks a breeze."

"Controllers are great! But sometimes you wish to customize a few knobs.
Before Remotify, you had to be a programmer to create an Ableton script.
Today, us mere mortals can go online to Remotify and use their dead simple, drag and drop script creator.

It literally takes a few seconds to have custom control of Ableton!
In the time it took you to read this, you could have created your own custom Ableton Script for that controller sitting in front of you!"

"Thanks again. It is working great! I'm running 2x DS1s to extend control over 16 channels and your Remotify app has enabled me to tailor the functionality and workflow in a way that I couldn't achieve otherwise. Thank you!"

"Thank you so much for your support! It's nice to see how active you are and willing to help out customers on an individual basis. Can't wait to see how this project will evolve with all those exciting possibilities coming up. It has already evolved a lot since a few weeks ago when I discovered Remotify."
