Midi Fighter Twister Script for Ableton (selected track)

Description and Instructions

Control Surface Studio from Remotify made this script possible without any coding required. It works great and it is super fun working on this build. You can edit this script to your own liking within the Control Surface Studio App (using the provided .json files) Check it out!


This mapping consists of all four Midifighter Banks which are mapped to corner side buttons.

Upper-Left side button = Bank 1: Selected Track and 8 Macros

  • Track Navigation (Scroll)
  • Scene Navigation (Shift Encoder Scroll) (press Enter on your keyboard to trigger selected clip)
  • Track Volume-Mute-Solo-Arm-Pan-Sends
  • 8 Macros (Parameters)
  • Device Navigation (Prev/Next)

Upper-Right side button = Bank 2: 16 Macros

  • 16 Macros (Parameters)
  • Track Navigation (center side buttons)
  • Device Navigation

Lower-Left side button = Bank 3: Not assigned

  • User Map (feel free to assign any functions via the MIDI button in this bank)

Lower-Right side button = Bank 4: Twisted Gratification effects

  • Track Navigation (Scroll)
  • Scene Navigation (Shift Encoder Scroll)
  • Twisted Gratification Effects!
  • FX Kill Switch
  • Mouse Emulation Rotary Encoder ( macOS only feature)

Installation Guides and Infographics are included in download. Choose either Mac or PC version and follow all steps.

Also, included is the Ableton Project with custom mapped effect devices and a couple of loops to test effects right away.

If you need support or have ideas for other cool mappings for Ableton, let me know.

Layout is great and there's even a detailed infographic. I've been using the 16 automapped parameters so much and it's such a blessing. Stewe, you're the best!

hey thanks for the great work. only thing that's weird for me is that on bank 1 the 1-8 control the macros 9-16. any idea what's happening there (ableton11)?

It is Control Surface Studio issue - a known bug. Definitely removing this until it's fixed by Remotify.

Works great, any chance you could add a way to switch banks of device parameters? 16 is great but 32 or 64 device controls would be amazing.

Parameter banking does not work properly, it is Control Surface Studio bug.

It does the weirdest thing for me. The Bank 1 device parameters control the 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 ableton device macros but the led lights responses to the 9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16 ableton device macros. So when I click on a device like and Audio Effect Rack the led lights show the wrong value. Very nice script tho! Would be nice to solve this problem.

*** I'm on Ableton Live 11... Also the 8th knob of Bank 2 controls the Send1 function not the device parameter.

Thank you for reporting this. I was able to duplicate the issue with LED feedback on Macro knobs there is an issue with Parameter Banking inside CSS application - currently it is displaying both parameter banks and that's the reason why you are seeing macros 9-16 displayed on macros 1-8. I will delete the parameter banking until it's fixed by Remotify. The other issue with Send I couldn't duplicate at my end, need more info there.

Really great job on the setup. Do you happen to know if Remotify fixed the LED issue with the parameter banks?

It would be interesting to add in bank 2 the possibility of activating the random and new functions on the variations, as well as the navigation and the triggering of these variations.

I need to check it out. Thanks!
