MF Pro Launcher
Description and Instructions
This is a Ableton Live MIDI sript made for the MF Pro to mimic some basic behavior of the Launchpad or APC. Like launching clips, arming, muting tracks, etc. The mapping consits of 4 pages. First make sure that you have enabled the 4 Banks mode in the MF Utility app. Page 1: is the General control page and consists of tempo controls, global play, stop and record and the controls to move around the "red box" Page 2: is the Track control page. Each row corresponds to one of the rows inside of the red box. And it consits of Track select, Mut, Arm and Solo. Page 3: is the Clip control page, you have a 4x3 grid and the top row is the stop button for each track. You can find more details and demonstrational video on my website
Page 4: is the drum rack pad. It plays the highlighted 4x4 grid in the drum rack. Make sure that the drum track is Armed and the Track input is On in the Midi preferences page. Also the knobs and faders get automatically mapped to the first device of the selected track, "blue hand" http://tomashg.com/?p=663 and http://forum.djtechtools.com/showthread.php?t=54533 PS: thanks to gonecrazy3000 for pointing out that the preset buttons on the Beat Masher are arranged differently so the pages would be like this: preset button 1 =>page 3 preset button 2 =>page 1 preset button 3 =>page 4 preset button 4 =>page 2----- SETUP ----- 1. Make sure that your MIDI Fighter Pro is set in 4 banks mode. 2. Extract the zip file inside Ableton's MIDI Remote Scripts folder. Located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Ableton\Live x.x\Resources\MIDI Remote Scripts\MIDI_Fight_Launcher under Windos or \Live x.x\Live.app\Contents\App-Resources\MIDI Remote Scripts for Mac OSX 3. Rename the extracted folder to 'MIDI_Fight_Launcher' 4. Launch Ableton Live and go to Preferences. Under MIDI Sync tap select MIDI Fight Launcher in the Control SUrface drop down list and set the correct input and output MIDI ports. Also make sure that the Track is set to On for the Drum Rack page to function properly.

Forgive me but I downloaded this and I see absolutely no way of opening this map... according to the ableton forums there is no way to map to ableton. How do I use these files?

I seriously tried to figure this out without having to ask :P I get to the part where I'm attempting to import my settings into the MF app, once I navigate to the MIDI_Fight_Launcher I don't see any aplicable files for the launcher to use for settings (.mfs) here's an example: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6097909/1_W3B/midifighter.mov

Hey I'm really digging this mapping template--especially being able to navigate in clip view. But a lot of the mappings seem a bit off. I'm on a beat masher (one less knob), so might that have screwed up the mappings? Is there any way to manually edit either (1) the midi CC notes in the MF utility or, (2) easily change your script to account for the one less rotary knob? Don't get me wrong, I GREATLY appreciate this template, I'm just trying to figure out if the problem is because of user error, or just the one fewer knob that's mucking it up. Any suggestions--or links to beatmasher mappings :) would be awesome--thanks dude!
