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:

Hello all, Did Ableton Live 10 break this? Because it doesn't seem to work any more.

Under Control Surface just select Twister Device Control - then for your input and output select Midi Fighter Twister. I have Track and Remote "on" for the input and Remote "on" for the output. I just reinstalled on my brand new Ableton 10 and it still works!

This is great. 8 faders are mapped to the current Live device, leaving many other encoders free to be mapped to whatever you want. Currently have this set up in conjunction with my MFT Diva map. Thanks Zach!!
