MF Twister Ableton Script

Description and Instructions

This script requires Ableton 11 or higher, if you are running an older version grab v2.1 from the sidebar


This mapping was originally made for Ableton 9.6 and is fully compatible with the Midi Fighter’s sequencer mode.

This guide refers to the 2.0 version of this mapping and it will be updated to reflect changes in following versions. 


  • Track Select/Solo/Arm/Mute
  • Track Volume/Pan/Sends
  • Device control and navigation (On/Off, Next/Prev Bank, Next/Prev Device, Device Lock)
  • Focused Track Controls
  • Transport controls


After downloading Twister Ableton Script from DJTechtools and unzipping it a folder will be created with the same name that will contain this guide and three more files: Twister_Ableton.mfs and a folder named Script.

1. Open the MF Utility and import the Twister_Ableton.mfs file via File > Import Settings.

2. Copy the contents of the Script folder (_Mono_Framework, _Tools and Twister) to your Ableton Live's MIDI Remote Scripts folder.

  • WINDOWS - Located in “C:\ProgramData\Ableton\Live 10 Suite\Resources\MIDI Remote Scripts”. Program Data folder is not visible by default, you might need to enable "Show hidden folders" as shown here).
  • MAC -  Right click on your Ableton's app and click "Show Package Contents” and navigate to “\Contents\App-Resources\MIDI Remote Scripts\".

3. Launch Ableton Live and the script should detect your device and set itself up. If this doesnt’t happen go to Preferences and under MIDI Sync tab select Twister in the Control Surface drop down list and set the correct input and output MIDI ports.


  • Requires August 13th 2014 firmware or higher
  • Changing the side buttons’ order will break this mapping so avoid it to prevent losing functionality: If that is the case, reload the .mfs file.
  • If the script doesn't show up make sure you copied over all contents of the Script folder to the intended destination and NOT the Script folder as a whole.
  • This script was originally made by Amounra for the Livid Ohm64 controller and has been edited to extend part of it's functionality to Twister and PY files are included in this release. If you mod the original script or this one in any way don't forget to credit the original author.

Hi, do you have a button layout that you could send me? One that shows me which encoder does which function? That would be really helpful. I can print and put on the wall.

Hi, I'm using Live 11.2. It seems I'm stuck in Bank 1 and can't switch to other banks, even the lights change.

I also tried 11.0.1, the behavior is the same. Any idea what could be the problem?

I've tried Live 10.1 with v2.12, the behavior is the same. When I press the side buttons, the color scheme on twister changes to the corresponding banks, but pushing and tuning the knobs only acts as the function of what Bank 1 says in the manual. I've also tried different USB ports, I'm using Win 10. Could it be the problem with device itself?

I'm unable to open the utility app on Monterey 12.4, is there a solution to load the mapping into the Midi Fighter twister without it ?

Have you tried this?

Hello, it looks like there is a need to update install and set up instructions. I cannot start anyway after downloading the latest script package and applying the instructions here, as well those, contained in the manual from the .zip package.

Hi, this is working great for me on 11.1.1. Feature request: Is there any chance you could add a Bank 4 with 16 Macros? Thanks!
