MAX4LIVE & THE LAUNCHPAD TAKE CONTROL
Max4Live & Oktopad take control of the Novation LaunchPad or LaunchPad S whilst leaving the the default functionality intact. Using the side round buttons you can navigate between 8 different scenes of effects and control. Oktopad is one of our most comprehensive live performance templates!
Scene One – We start with a controllable Buffer Shuffler effect that slices incoming audio and allows you to rearrange, reverse and mute slices on the fly
Scene Two – Brings DJ effects including Hi and Lo Pass Filter Sweeps, Turntable Rewind and Brake effects along with a Slicer that lets you repeat slices of incoming audio on a momentary basis to create drum fills and stutters
Scene Three – Consists of a fully configuarable page of buttons that can be set to control any parameter in Ableton. You can configure their on and off values. In addition decide whether they behave as a toggle or momentary and even how long it takes to reach each value. We’ve built it to allow you to instantly recall up to 8 banks of mappings
Scene Four – Gives you 8 pages of Faders that move smoothly between values instead of jumping instantly. The rate of smoothing can even be adjusted to your own taste and mixing style
Scene Five – Takes control of the Send Volumes and Return Track Devices, again with the smoothing of value jumps set by the user
Scene Six – On the fly looping control for the playing clips within the Ring Focus Box (Red Box). This allows you to set pre-defined sizes of loops, move them and double or halve them. As Oktopad an be set to follow another Ableton Live supported controller you can launch your clips with an APC40, Push or Second Launchpad and control the looping of these clips with your Oktopad Launchpad…
