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!

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.

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/.

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

Does not seem to work... must be missing something. Mad Zach's version has many files..... What do I need to do?

Alex Grabiner over 5 years ago

There is only one file, but make sure its in the USER remote scripts folder, check out this article for instructions on how to find it
