Kontrol F1 Mapping

Submitted by inbituin on Wed, 08/21/2019 - 09:02

Hello! Just got CSS last night and I'm excited about the possibilities of finally using my F1 with Ableton Live.

I've been watching the tutorials and followed the instructions but I can't seem to get everything going perfectly when it seems simple enough.

Stevan's CSS Controller Template for DJTT Midi Fighter Twister

Submitted by Stevan on Fri, 08/09/2019 - 05:55

Greetings artists,

I'm posting this here in case someone is looking for Twister template for all four banks. The CSS comes with built in Twister template for the single bank and no side buttons. I expanded controls to all four banks (plus bank side button Notes)

Attached you will find the .json file.
Since it is not possible to upload .mfs files (midifighter settings) ensure to set your Twister to default settings (in MFU) to match channels and CC's for this template.

Switch Action Type is "CC Hold"
Encoder MIDI Type is "CC"

Have fun!

Control Device by Name

Submitted by holltmusic on Thu, 08/01/2019 - 13:40

Hi John,

I bought the CSS last week, totally in love with it! Amazing work.

I have a question about Device Controlling.

For example:

I have a selected track, I need 'Special Effect Macros' to control my 8 macro's and it is on position 1 of the track.
On another track I have 'Special Effect Macros' set to position 3 of the track..

Is it possible to listen to a specific device via Device Name?
So I could say to CSS: Control 'Special Effects Macros' instead of: Device Select: 1 or 3.

Thank you in advance!!

Gr, Jeff

Using encoders with Ableton's blue hand

Submitted by danmundy on Sun, 07/07/2019 - 05:45

I'm really struggling to get my controller's 8 encoders linked to the "blue hand" functions in Ableton LIve 10.1. From what I can tell there's no "mode" to do this, so I'm guessing you just have to add them as Endless Encoder 1, 2, etc, but it's not working. Is there anything else I need to do, to get the encoders to map to the blue hand functions?

How do you know if LED feedback will work with a pedal? Trying to choose...

I'm trying to make a proper grid, preferably not wildly expensive and with LED feedback control.

Novation SL MK2 Template

Submitted by Maikoos on Sat, 05/25/2019 - 05:03

Hi there,
I'm posting my template for a Novation SL MK2 I just made. You'll need to tweak the midi controllers and button/knob behaviours to suit your own setup but hopefully this will save you a bit of time. I've only included the assignable knob and buttons. The XY Pad and the joystick presented some difficulties as there are no objects to represent them. I've approximated them with a crossfader and a slider in a cross position. The SL MK2 only has one row of pads but the minimum in CSS is 2 rows so ignore the bottom row. Perhaps they can represent alternate modes?

Metronome Led Reaction

Submitted by danicroitor on Fri, 03/15/2019 - 18:22

I've managed to get reaction for Metronome by listening to a button. But What I don't know is how to set this up by listening to metronome instead and get the same reaction to that button?

If I choose for the listener: metronome I cannot choose anymore a button for the reaction.

Any ideas how to set this up?

Controller: Vestax VCM-600

Further to a user request, here is an "in progress" Controller file of the Vestax VCM-600 for import direct into Control Surface Studio.

Status "in progress"
The UI of the Controller is built but now needs all of the correct MIDI Message values putting in to each control.
If someone has this controller (or midi message list) and could update the file then upload it to this thread for everyone, that would be amazing!
