PrEditor 2 – Ableton Live Control Surface Mapping Utility

Price £40.00

PrEditor is an application that allows you to configure how selected MIDI Controllers map within Ableton Live to Instruments, FX, VSTs, AUs & MaxforLive Devices

With a simple and intuitive graphical interface you can:

  • Build up your parameters in banks & customise the name of your banks for display on the Push 1 & 2 screen, with up to 64 banks for each mapping
  • Customise the naming of each parameter for display on the Push 1 & 2 screen, great for VSTs that aren’t developed with the Push display in mind or MaxforLive devices that would only display Bank 1, Bank 2 etc.
  • Re-Arrange, re-order, copy and paste banks
  • Have blank spaces & Map a parameter multiple times across different banks
  • Access all of the hidden parameters of Live’s devices that were previously only available to Push 1 & 2 (awesome when using one of our custom Control Surface Scripts!)
  • Unlock the access to all of the parameters in a MaxforLive device!
  • Create maps for MultiMap VST/AU devices like Native Instruments Reaktor & Kontakt and Diva

Description

One of the beauties of Ableton Live is it’s configurability, add more tracks, redefine your channel strip effects, i didn’t think i’d ever finish the perfect set up. PrEditor 2 makes it possible at last by giving you complete customisation of how your MIDI controller maps in Live!

Some things are non-negotiable though! And even with months of thoughtful debate by the Ableton team they’re never going to keep everyone happy with their map of how parameters are ordered in Live…

Plus the default mappings are all linked to the paradigm of banks of 8, so what happens when you’ve got your hands on 24 or 32 parameters at once with one of our Control Surface scripts for the Novation LaunchControlNovation LaunchControl XL, AKAI MIDI Mix or Behringer BCR2000? Or even with the included scripts for the AKAI APC40, APC40 MKII, Ableton Push 1 and Ableton Push 2!!

With PrEditor 2 you can create your own maps for all of Ableton Live’s Instruments and Effects plus it will allow you to build maps for how your controller AutoMaps with Ableton Live’s Blue Hand function for your VSTs and MaxforLive devices without having to learn a line of code!

All of Live’s native Instruments and Effects can be re-mapped, you can even map the same parameter in multiple banks if for example you always want the first encoder to handle the resonance of Autofilter.

    The PrEditor2 is very useful tool. It is worth its money. After paying I got the download link directly. The LiveMapMode is awesome. It is easy to operate with it. . The mapping goes fast.
    The concept is thought through. At the beginning I had difficulties, but the sevice is also top. The team has taken the time and could help me.

  2. andymacpherson

    Other than the Push 2, easily the best Ableton related purchase I’ve made. This will streamline my workflow a lot better, leaving more time to be creative, bridging the gap between software and hardware on the tactile control side of things. And like the other review said, spot on customer service. Looking forward to the updates.

  3. Dan Evans

    This is how mapping for Push 2 should be! Worth every penny.

  4. TakodaC

    Preditor 2 is a must for those that like to optimize their workflow. Once you get the hang of it, it provides an easy way to set up and control your plugins. A well thought out program that is definitely worth the asking price. Customer service is top notch as well.
    *Special shoutout to the multi-map functionality*

  5. Holocule

    PrEditor2 is awesome easy to use and and maps perfectly to what you want it to along with great support from Isotonik, a great addition to any tool set.

  6. kradlabs

    The biggest missing feature from Ableton, and great support to boot. How can you go wrong?

  7. knkm003

    i just can’t understand ableton developers.

    anyway isotonikstudio did a great job.
    this is must tool for push users

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.

CURRENT LIMITATIONS

PLEASE NOTE:

The following limitations currently exist. We hope to resolve these in future updates:

  • Visual devices (Auto-filter, Compressor, Echo, EQ8, Operator, Simpler, Wavetable) can be customised but visualisations cannot be applied to the customised devices (Push).
  • Extended mapping cannot be used for Simpler (All)
  • There are issues with behaviour of certain parameters when providing custom options (see 9.2) (Push).
  • Having a parameter on multiple banks with options specified can cause incorrect display – it is advised to currently only have one instance of these (Push).
