Controller Template change updates

Submitted by matthewjschultz on Sat, 05/01/2021 - 19:17

I'm working on an DJTT MFT + Ableton script. I've changed the default MIDI CCs and channels for knobs => 5 and buttons => 6 to isolate the MFT. Instead of going through the 128 controls in the template, I'm updating the knob/button cc info as I go.

It seems that the only way to get the cc template changes to Ableton is to manually delete the target CCS script folder from MIDI remote scripts and re-push it from CCS; an typical overwrite doesn't seem to work.

Is that right?

Location of custom controller templates (on a Mac)?

Submitted by matthewjschultz on Fri, 04/30/2021 - 22:10

While using CSS it crashed and when it recovered I discovered that I'd lost a custom controller template created for the NakedBoards MC-24

Since the software auto-saves I didn't think to export it to save it. Is there a location on Mac Big Sur where that template might live and be recoverable?

If not… lesson learned and I'll have to recreate it.

Are there any templates for a McMillan Quneo or QuNexus so I don't have to create a layout from scratch?

I spend ages last night creating a script for my Korg NanoKontrol.
I wanted to add a couple more functions - the transport buttons.
I opened CSS this morning and the only Control Template available is AkaiMIDImix.
I'm very confused!

also.... I downloaded ControlSurfaceStudio and the exe file is sitting in my Downloads folder. Should I move this exe file to my Programmes folder??

About the accuracy of Endless Encoders

Submitted by Simon Absent on Tue, 03/23/2021 - 01:02

I am using an Autaria Beatstep and in the process of building a Sampler / DrumComputer of sorts.

So my plan is to switch / choose Samples with an Endless Encoder which I manage to do.

Unfortunately if I have 128 Samples ready in Ableton and turn the Endles Encoder by one "click" I donst get just one digit but several.

So if I want to switch from Sample 3 to Sample 4 it will jump from 3 to 5 or 6
This is frustrating because I can not accurately select sounds I pre chose.

Cant Target 2nd Device - please help

I have a Simpler and control it with Parameters that works fine or me.

Now I want a grouped MIDI-pitch before the Simpler

Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to control it now.

Tried device number but whatever I try I am told "the device I want to control does not exist" by Ableton.

See screenshots or details.

Thank you!

I'm very new to remotify and just bought CSS, however my controller is the Push 2, I was dismayed to see there are no templates available for it? Is it not supported by remotify?

Axiom 49 Classic

Submitted by Agreaves on Thu, 01/28/2021 - 21:12

I'm trying to create custom script for my Axiom 49 Classic. I have 8 knobs set to control selected track sends in Ableton. However, the script doesn't work. I tried changing the pickup from non-value scaling of which none worked. If I map the knobs in Ableton directly they work, but I want to control selected tracks, and not just one track. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Use two controllers in one script

Submitted by Park Hyunsung on Sat, 01/09/2021 - 18:40

I have a controller that only has a lot of knobs.
And there is a keyboard with 16 pads.

Your answer has shown that you cannot change the parameter bank based on the device name.

So I tried to solve it using my limited controllers.

Here's how I thought.

Pads : Assign 'parameters banking' to each pad. (Allocate two bank numbers for each pad and change mode to allocate a total of 32 parameterbanks.)
Controller (knob only) : Assign parameters to knobs for 32 devices. A total of 32 'parameters banks' were created.
