PLEASE NOTE: THIS INITIAL RELEASE IS PROVIDED SOLELY AS A MAXFORLIVE DEVICE THAT CAN BE DRAGGED INTO ANY AUDIO TRACK IN LIVE.
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.

The more I worked with MaxforLive and the Push 3 Standalone the more I realised I wanted to build a massive performance template for it!
You can join in as I build OktoPush THREE in public by following the playlist produced in conjunction with Create Digital Music, the basic device will continue to be released for free and contain the theory behind the interactivity between the Push and Live. The concept being if you’re into programming yourself you can get hold of the code and build your own devices.
Not everyone wants to do that though so OktoPush THREE is the alternative, a premium performance template that we’ll be building over a period of time, increasing the price with each new release. We’ll be adding new features via MaxforLive devices and including performance effect racks courtesy of effects wizard PerforModule!
Our intent is to use MaxforLive to create 8 separate modes of control to the Push 3 that you can switch between by pressing SHIFT and one of the SCENE LAUNCH BUTTONS.
Switching into OktoPush mode can be done with a variety of methods, as time progresses we may add or remove from these options based on users feedback, we may even make it a user definable option? We’ll take customers votes into account for this…
When active the Push Button Matrix will be reconfigured to control a rack named Isotonik on the selected track, based on the settings detailed below the top two rows of the button matrix will be assigned to control the 16 macros of the Isotonik rack which can be in any position within your device view
When selecting a new track and engaging scene one OktoPush will automatically light the third and fourth rows to indicate the number of Macro Variations available for the Isotonik Rack, up to a minimum of 16 variations. Pressing these buttons will switch between each of them.
Whilst in this scene pressing the SHIFT BUTTON will change the third and fourth rows to display the available chains, up to a maximum of 16. Pressing these buttons will switch between the chains
Not every Isotonik rack has to be identical, it just has to be named Isotonik!
CONFIGURATION – USING YOUR OWN EFFECTS RACKS
This initial release contains no audio effect racks so we’d love to know what you come up with whilst PerforModule gets busy in the laboratory!
Check the change log to see which features have been added to see the progress.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS TEMPLATE HAS BEEN TESTED TO WORK WITH THE PUSH 3 STANDALONE & CONTROLLER. WE HOPE TO EXTEND THE TESTING TO PUSH ONE & TWO FOR FUTURE RELEASES
