MF Twister Ableton Sequencer

Description and Instructions

To maximise Twister's sequencer functionality I made a special Drum Rack that allows you to route each column's audio into an internal track so you can expect the same workflow as you get in Traktor's Remix Decks. This allows you to not only add effects per sample as you would expect in Ableton but have column specific effects, mutes and filters.

1. To install this Drum Rack simply download the attached zip file and uncompress it.

2. Open the contained Ableton Project.

3. Open Ableton's preferences and navigate to the MIDI/Sync tab.

4. Enable TRACK and REMOTE Inputs.

5. Enable SYNC and REMOTE Outputs.

To enter the sequencer layer simply hold down both middle side buttons on your device and finally press the top right side button to start Twister's clock. If can't get it to work make sure the project is running.

If you want to save this project as your template so it loads each time Ableton boots then open it's preferences window and click SAVE in the File/Folder tab.

NOTE: The Ableton session needs to be running in order for the sequencer to work since it relies on Ableton's Master Clock.

Hi, The sequencer is running at 1/32 how do I change it to 1/16? Thanks!

Padi, holding down the side buttons to resync the internal clock is not working in Ableton Live 10. Can you update the script to work reliably with the latest version of Ableton Live 10?

This is a traditional mapping which doesn't rely on scripting (it's using Twister's internal sequencer). Make sure the project is running (play button is lit green in Ableton) and that SYNC out is enabled for Twister in the MIDI/Sync preferences.

How do you get it to sync with the click? The twister sequencer runs on it own and it's impossible to play with other stuff because how it is not syncable

Side buttons can be used to resync the internal clock

Is the sequencing somehow saved into the Twister? I ask because I have started different projects using the Twister Ableton Sequencer Project as a template to begin from but it seems like changes I make in one project cary over into the other. Thanks!

Yes, the sequencer itself lives inside Twister, this template just makes using it in Ableton easier. You can use the lower right side button to enter the Snapshot page and save different states there by pressing an encoder. If you need to delete one hold that lower right side button and then push on the encoder you want cleared.

Is it possible to add more than 4 channels like using banks? Is possible to play samples together like using a window of samples with an apc ? Thanks a lot for you really nice map ! Musically

Sadly not using the built in sequencer since it's limited to 4 voices. You could potentially use a Looper or something along those lines to record a voice and then replace the original with a new sound.

No way :-) Can you tell me how did you built this project? I can't think we cannot remove the filters and volume and place 4 more sequencers channel instead fighter is new to me but i am sure it can be a big tool for my new project thanks a lot for your time

This just make me keep my MF. I was gonna return it as the knobs are waaay too stiff on mine, but I opened a ticket to see if there is a way to get them looser maybe some silicone spray or something. I want to turn them easily with one finger on the side like a Moog synth. But fuck that now. This is a whole new world. I somehow missed the fact there is a BUILT IN SEQUENCER and Your Project sealed the deal. Wow. CAN YOU MAKE A VIDEO ON HOW YOU CAN MAKE MORE AND CAN YOU MAKE ONE FOR LOGIC 10.4?
