When we first released our script for the Novation LaunchControl XL we were taken aback by the positive feedback for our extended parameter mode allowing up to 24 parameters to be controlled at the same time with the available encoders. Our Channel Strip Upgrade takes things one step further.
Next we took the feature to the BCR 2000. We sure we’ll be adding more control scripts in time having got a MIDI Fighter Twister and Native Instruments Maschine Jam sitting in the Lab….
Now to follow up on our PrEditor Mapping utility upgrade (that allows the user to define exactly how each Instrument, Effect, VST/AU and MaxforLive device is mapped with the BlueHand AutoMapping feature of Ableton Live) we bring you the Channel Strip!
When performing Live with multiple tracks sometimes Ableton Lives paradigm of only being able to control the Rack in focus can be limiting, for example if you want to adjust the Bass of one track against another at the same time you have to play Track Focus Tennis and bounce around your set making small changes. It’s hardly organic…
With the Channel Strip Upgrade you simply drop in a rack to each track and call it “Isotonik”, switch into the Channel Strip Mode from the controller directly and you’ll take control of all of the Isotonik Racks that are in focus of the RingFocus Box. Just think, you’ll have EQ control across 8 tracks at the same time!
You can bank up and down through the 8 available Macros in the Rack, just have a look at the screenshot at the top for an idea of what you could control and then watch the walkthrough video below to see how simple yet effective this new way of control really is!
