The Ableton Push is possibly the most integrated Live controller out there, we wanted more though. The ability to create custom mapping whilst retaining Clip Launching ability whilst adding banks of control to the powerful encoders and display, OktoPush is what you’ve been searching for!
OktoPush Scene ONE
Our popular set of Isotonik Effects, each of the Encoders controls the rate of an effect with the Track Select Buttons acting as effect on and off controls…
The Track Select Buttons work on a momentary basis allowing you to punch in and out of effects, you can set a Toggle time however so that holding a button down for a certain time will change its behaviour to work on a Toggle basis…
We’ve used the display to show the effects that are assigned to each control so you can further move away from the laptop screen and concentrate on your performance!
We’ve included a Rewind effect, Turntable Brake, Low and High Pass Filter with Resonance and Overdrive control along with a Cutter effect and our Smart Effects are incorporated within the template.
The Button matrix has dual functionality dependent on whether the Shift Button is pressed, with it released the buttons control our Slicer effect allowing a quantised beat repeat type effect. You can re-trigger any 1/8th of the previous bars audio and control the rate it’ll repeat at down to 1/64ths and then combine this with other effects like the momentary control of the Low and High Pass filter assigned to the touch strip!
With Shift engaged the matrix will now work as a playable Buffer Shuffler effect with running light metronome and visual feedback of which order your slices are in and the direction in which each slice shall play…
OktoPush Button Matrix Editor
With these two scenes we’ve created an editor for the Button Matrix allowing you to map any of the buttons to parameters within Live, you can even choose to not map a button and leave it with it’s default Clip Launching Functionality…
Each Scene has Dynamic Mapping that follows the onscreen Red Box and options which allow the buttons to work on a Toggle or Momentary basis, with Glide & Velocity Control allowing you to play effects expressively…
OktoPush Encoder Editor
Pressing SHIFT and one of the six encoder function buttons (Volume, Pan & Send, Track etc.) will disable the standard functionality and switch into the chosen Isotonik Bank, these are configurable to be mapped to any parameter within Live.
The default template assigns these to DJ EQ and Lo and Hi Pass Filter control across the eight tracks of the Push’s Ring Focus Box. The mappings again can be set to be dynamic and follow as you navigate around your live set.
All in all it’s a pretty well featured template which is also compatible with the LaunchSync Series if you want to sync a Novation LaunchControl or other similar MIDI Controller to add knobs to your set up!
NOTE: This template is not compatible with the Ableton Push TWO
