«Basic Ableton Push control with Modality» by LFSaw

on 29 Jan'17 14:07 in modalitycookbookableton push

Example on how to interface SuperCollider with Ableton Push via Modality toolkit. (I only have the first version here, send me a second version and I'll make it compatible with that ;) )

// create Mktl for the Push controller, it has two ports, the 2nd one is the "default"
// make sure, ableton is not running (it grabs the device)


// there is a specified class that simplifies use of LEDs, everything else is the same as in MKtl
k = MPush('push');


// standard method
k = MKtl('push', "ableton-push", multiIndex: 1);





k.trace(true);
// wiggle some pots / buttons

k.trace(false);

// set an action to post aftertouch values

// remove action
