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.
Initial Release – March 2022
Just the same as Ableton Live the “Scene Setlist Monitor” can be used in very different contexts. Playback operations for bands, live-electro performances, art installations – you name it. The Scene Setlist Monitor might give you new ideas on how to set things up and enjoy making and perform music with Ableton Live even more.
The Scene Setlist Monitor device can display names and colors from scenes, clip notes and a selection of scenes which you set as starting scenes for songs. This will be shown in a pop-up window which can be resized and positioned to your needs. You can customize the display of scenes, notes, colors and the opacity for this window.
You can also monitor the remaining playtime of the currently playing scene, meaning how many bars are left until the scene has played to its end.
If needed, names of the former scene or of the next scenes (up to 3) can be displayed in the monitoring pop-up window.
The Scene Setlist Monitor device needs to be placed on a MIDI track. Every scene on this MIDI track needs to have a MIDI clip so that the device is able to detect which scene is playing. Those clips need to be set to the right ‘scene-length’ bar time to be able to monitor it.
The MIDI clips can be re-named with the text you want to have displayed as “Clip Notes”.
Within the download there is an iPad version of this device available, this enables your iPad to display scene names, song starting scenes (a “Setlist”), clip notes and more on an iPad. For this you would need an app called MIRA (please check if your iPad is compatible with this app). As this is a second device you would be able to have different “Clip Notes” set up and displayed e.g. this way another musician you play with could get different notes.
