Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.
.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.
.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.
Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download, an abridged version of the installation will be shown further down this page.
ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.
Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.

Spurred on by the popularity of Sigaborts BCR XL Control Surface Script we grabbed a Behringer BCF 2000 and went about sprinkling some Isotonik magic on it…
With it’s motorised faders and LED ringed encoders it’s a surprise to us that no-ones yet come up with a definitive script for it, we’d like to think that we’ve solved that conundrum and with this script the oft forgotten controller can once again have the dust brushed off it and take pride of place in the Ableton Live Performers set up.
MIX CONTROL – The Push Encoders at the top of the Behringer BCF device can be used to select tracks as well as being switchable between Mixer Mode, where you can choose which Send is being controlled for each of the eight tracks, with our Config.txt you can define whether this mode switches to control Pan on each track instead. The Buttons beneath give you Mute and Solo, or if you prefer you can switch configuration to look after Solo and Arm instead.
DEVICE CONTROL – Device Mode is switchable with one of the Control Buttons on the Controller and the Push Encoders will change to Device Control focusing on whatever is Blue-handed within Live, the buttons beneath then allow you to switch between the first eight devices on a track with the the bottom row of buttons giving you device on / off…
The Control Buttons to the right of the BCF 2000 give live control over various functions, whether it be moving up and down the banks of the controlled device, and device lock, in the Device Mode or Folding.Unfolding Tracks and moving up and down the available Send that’s being controlled in Mixer Mode.
Our Config.txt options include switching into 14_Bit mode for even finer control, various Returns Modes allowing return tracks to be controlled by the controller either when in view or permanently taking over the right hand side.
