Scripting Clip Launch of Specific Length

Submitted by twistymatic on Tue, 04/20/2021 - 09:20

On the Push, one can hit a button, choose the length of what you want, and it will create a clip, record for that long, and start playing. As far as I can tell, that isn't available on any other hardware. You can't specify how long it will be on the fly on other setups. BinkLooper is a workaround, but a complicated one that requires advance specification of the clip. Is it possible to create this Push functionality with Remotify?


PS - here is a somewhat hastily-searched-for and random discussion of the topic... there are many more online:

How hard would it be to make my own Blackstar Live Logic USB MIDI Controller?

Submitted by twistymatic on Tue, 04/20/2021 - 08:54

I need the functionality of the Blackstar Amplification MIDI foot controller (actually named Live Logic USB MIDI Controller). Actually, I need a lot more, but this is what I need to start. Rather than buy their controller I'd like to build my own. That's how I found Remotify. I'd like to have their functionality to start with, but then expand. I am sure I'd have their thing for a week before realizing I want more capabilities.

Problem switching modes

Hi newbie user here.

I am building a midi controller using an Arduino.

I am trying to switch modes using a single button and mode loop using the 'select mode' option.

Ableton receives a Midi message, but only Mode 1 can be selected successfully.

Clicking the button to scroll to Modes 2 & 3 gives the error message 'snapping is off for this control: check min/max values', in the Ableton message box. Then when I scroll through to Mode 1, it selects correctly.

CSS Select current playing Clip and Duplicate, double and delete

Hi John/everyone

Setting up a cool script for my novation mini, really getting into the groove with the software now

Was wondering if anyone knew what the reaction was to: select the current playing clip and duplicate and then play

There is script on the forum but it doesnt select or play, just duplicates so isnt helpful for what i would like to do.

Additionally if there was a reaction to select within the midi notes section (beleive you can midi map that in Ableton) and double the length that would be super handy for automation recording on longer sessions.

Device Parameter ON/OFF

thank you very much for this very powerful application.
I am using ableton live 11
I have a problem controlling the parameter of a device when it is an ON / OFF button
No worries to control a parameter with a knob with values ​​from 0 to 128 but what to do when it is a switch ?
I assigned the parameter to a button. This switches to OFF but impossible to switch to ON.

In my example the knobs 5,6 and 7 activate respectively the octave, the fourth and the fifth in my harmonizer (Quadravox) and the knobs 5,6,7 control the volumes.

Ipad MIDI Controller Macro Feedback Data

Submitted by jon31 on Mon, 04/12/2021 - 13:54

Hi guys,

I just want to ask if a remotify script is able to send back Information to my Ipad Midi controller ? I'm using Touch OSC and want to see what parameter I am controlling when the Device is selected. For Example I've build a simple script that applies to the first eight macros of a selected device. I just want to see the parameter names under/over the MIDI slider like the on ableton push. If it's possible but with another Ipad App just let me know how.

Kind regards

Newbie, first script isn't working

Just starting with CSS and not having any luck

I'm using a MFT and want to control volume and mute for channels. I've followed the directions closely and also tried to create a script using the web version, but Ableton 11 isn't recognizing the input.

When I load my live project, it says the control surface is active. But nothing works.

I reset my MFT to factory default. I'm just using the first scene or whatever they call it, whre all the encoders are purple.

BTW, I do see this in the CSS log after I try to run things..

Switch On Sending Value of 100, Rather than 127

Submitted by neilb on Sat, 04/10/2021 - 17:11

I set up my encoder switches in Control Surface Studio like any other button. Then used the Device function in each Track to map the perimeter I want them to control (Utility > Mono)..

The issue I’m running into is that clicking the encoder is only setting the value to 100, instead of 127.

Ableton Browser navigation using hardware

Submitted by hamster_switch on Wed, 04/07/2021 - 17:43

Is there a way to scroll through your library of files then load it to the desired clip (if MIDI or audio) or a channel (if .als project file) using a hardware MIDI Controller instead of a keyboard & mouse? For example I have a Traktor F1 controller that has a rotary knob which you can also push as a button, 4 faders and lots of other buttons. Is it possible to map/script this for that function using Remotify? Many Thanks
