TWISTERCONTROL

Description and Instructions

Built off the UserConfiguration script included with Ableton.  This script has the same functionally as Mad Zach's with the addition of bank controls, now you can access every parameter in Ableton devices.  

Last 8 encoders on Bank 4 control devices, bottom right and left side buttons toggle through banks.  To install, create a folder in the USER remote scripts folder (not MIDI remote scripts) and name it whatever you want this control surface to be named.  Then copy this file into that folder.  Feedback is always welcome!

Hi! I get only automating on the bottom 8 knobs of the bank 4. VERSION 10.0.5 Should it work for this version as well?
Alex Grabiner 4 months ago

Yes, only the bottom eight knobs, bc Ableton only displays 8 macros at a time. But you can page through to the other parameters using the bottom right and left side buttons.

Newest Ableton 10 .1.25. Windows 10. I see the script in ableton and it loads up and shows the yellow bar and even shows MIDI coming in when I twist the knobs. but none of the parameters change no matter what menu on the twister I try. I had Zachs script working perfect before I updated ableton and now it doesnt work (I cant find that script in the menu). So now I need some help here. Truly no idea.

CONFIRMED TO WORK ON ABLETON VERSION 10.1.25 (Mac OSX) Just spent the last hour and a half trying to get this shit to work and the install instructions are FUCKING CONFUSING but I'll try to recap in a (hopefully) clear concise way. - Go to finder - Find and click on hard drive icon -> users -> home icon (with ur user name) -> right click on a blank space between folders and hit - show view options -> "show library folder" (for some reason it's hidden by default, and there are 2 different library folders, make sure you followed my initial directions and you will be in the correct one) - Preferences -> Ableton -> select current version of live -> inside current version of live, create a new folder and name it whatever and drop the downloded "userconfiguration.txt" file inside (I named mine MIDI FIGHTER TWISTER) in all caps so that when I'm in ableton I can tell I'm actually using the correct file I created. - Load up live -> preferences -> midi connections -> control surface -> choose folder name you created - Then when your shits loaded use the right hand side middle button to click 3 times to the right, till you get to the 4th bank, then on that last bank page you will have auto mapping, and you can use the right/left bottom side buttons to change parameters Thank you to the creator Hope this helps you fucking assholes

Confirming this works on 10.0.6. Very handy! Wish i had seen this earlier have been using the Mad Zach script for years. I use this Max Audio Effect Rack that has a total of 16 macro knobs instead of Ableton's default eight, so this script is perfect for accessing those other 8 macros! http://www.maxforlive.com/library/device/1813/multimapper16 My description (for osx), especially for those that aren't long time owners or are new to their Twister/User scripts/messing around with library settings... as even I had to read over it a couple times to get it going. 1) Open finder, click go. Look for Library (which won't be listed until you hold 'Option' key) and open. 2) Scroll to "Preferences" folder, then to "Ableton", find the folder that is your current version, then onto "User Remote Scripts". 3) Create a folder and name it whatever ("Twister") just no special characters at the start of the name. 4) Put this downloaded script into that new folder. *There is another "UserConfiguration.txt" file, you don't need to do anything with this. It's just a template to get you going. You can read the "InstantMappings-HowTo.txt" if you are interested in digging deeper. But leave them there. 5) Start up Ableton and open Preferences to "Link/Midi" and go to Control Surfaces. Under Control Surfaces, find an empty drop down menu and look for the name of your folder ("Twister") 6) Set up the Ins & Outs as you would for the Mad Zach script. 7) Drop whatever you want to mess around with. First 8 knobs act like the Mad Zach script, but with this version adds more "Banks" or "Pages" for those bottom two rows. Using the bottom right button will move you to banks 2 thru 3 giving you even more knobs automatically assigned! Hope this helps some folks.

I seem to be having trouble accessing the extra banks. I keep pressing the bottom right side button but it just cycles me through all the regular banks normally.

Seems to work, thanks for the instructions!!

Hi Kai, What I don't understand is how you get this script to automatically control the 8 other macro's. If I install this script I can use the 8 bottom knobs to control the 8 first macro's of the multimapper, but the 8 other macro's are not automatically mapped. I still have to map them manually. Could you explain to me how you get this working? Thanks!

Where is the User Remote Script folder? I can't seem to find this in Ableton 9.7/Contents/App-Resources/.
Alex Grabiner about 6 years ago

It not in the app content, it should be in the user library
