Now updated for Live 11, these devices generally do one thing and do it well, you can use them by installing the .alp file from your download and drag then drop them from the packs section of Ableton Lives Browser.
Intended to appeal to the “Ronseal” principle (it’s a brand of outdoor varnish here in the UK) these devices do exactly what they say on the tin!
They’re designed in some cases yo focus on the currently playing clip within a track so will automatically update their focus when a new clip is launched, you can then MIDI Map the controls within the device to give you control over your live performance.
MODULAR SERIES LE PART THREE CONTENTS
I always struggled MIDI Mapping the Live tempo to a dial or a fader, unless I set the range to exactly the number of steps of the dial then I couldn’t accurately predict what changes I would be making, if only I had a load of endless encoders to be able to map…. Sadly not so that’s where this device comes in.
It allows for you to control with a dial or buttons incremental increases and decreases of the tempo on a relative basis top the current tempo!
SET TIME SIGNATURE
Many people like to set their time signatures by triggering a scene containing the information, but what if you want a set of buttons to be able to trigger the change on the fly, well here you go!!
SOUND FILE RECORDER
If you’ve got into streaming over the last few years you’ll probably be familiar with the Twitch feature of capturing clips of your performance. Well this device does exactly that without needing to set up a resample track in advance, just drop the device on any track, set the file location and choose the file settings.
Then with one press of a button you’ll instantly record a clip onto your hard drive!!
