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.

It seems to me more like a firmware issue, so not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but in this demo of the sequencer with Traktor, around 4:25 mark: https://youtu.be/bvgVgrtc1oc?t=265 the top row of encoders work in Shift Encoder Toggle mode, allowing you to apply effects on top of sample selection. When I try this in Ableton Live, they only work in CC Toggle mode, so the most you can do is enable/disable some effect when you map this to some device's on/off button, but you cannot modulate the effect. Is there a way to make it work as in the vid?

I'm also curious about using this in Live 11.

Hey there! Thanks for putting together. Doesn't seem to work on Ableton Live 11 Intro; any insight as to why? Is there any work arounds I can try?

Hi. This is great, it works really well. Took a bit of fiddling but got there in the end.

I've been trying to get this to work in live10 for three days. I'm moments away from driving to DJTT main office and chucking this device through their goddamned window. I've installed MFT8.mfs, set inputs/outputs per instructions, and fiddled with every setting in between to make this work as a sequencer...NOTHING WORKS. A little help here?
