Mad Zach's Handy Dandy Twister Ableton Device Control Script

Invalid YouTube URL

Description and Instructions

This is a simple Ableton Live Script to allow Twister's bottom 8 knobs in bank 4 control any live device, effect, effect chain, or instrument which is selected (with the "device focus" blue hand) in Ableton Live. I've used it only with Live 9 and Mac (though it should also work for Windows) – sorry Live 8 people.

It is a modification of the LPD 8 live script, nothing too complicated – enhancements/improvements are invited and encouraged!

To install, just unzip, and drop into the live scripts folder. You can find this folder (it is hidden sort of) by doing the following:

right/ctrl click the Ableton Application Icon > Show Package Contents, then Contents/App-Resources/MIDI Remote Scripts/

Once you've done that, restart Ableton, and load the script in the midi preferences, setting Twister as your in and out. If that is confusing... check out this article which explains how to install a custom live script:
