Device Overview

Name/Version: ST909 Novation Drumstation v.2 909 Control 1.0
Author: Jinx  
Description: Get proper control over your Novation Drumstation rack with this beautiful Midi Device!

If you own one of these devices, maybe you already have noticed that the individual level parameters, sadly enough, does not answer to MIDI. All other parameters responsive to MIDI information has been made available in the Controller.
This Device is mainly for the 909 part of the Drumstation. I Also made an equally beautiful device for the 808 (ST-808), so check it out.

An advice is to put both these devices in the same track and group it together with a General Midi Drum map and Live's External instrument device. You might have to change some of your Key zone settings.

And also:

PS. I havent named each parameter properly so it's a bit tricky automating at the moment. feel free to change this. I will propably do this soon and upload an updated version. DS.

Are you going to make one for the TR-909?

Hi Jinx,

amazing that you made the effort, really nice device!

the only thing that makes it hard to use is that Midi-Mapping seems not possible, i cannot select it in Midi-Map-Mode.

Any way to change that?

i got it working.
sometimes it accepts the mapping, sometimes it doesn't.
it seems to help if the device is selected before you type CMD-M.


I going crazy looking for a sequencer for this drum synth that sounds so cool, but i hate to sequence in midi clips in ableton.

Does anyone have seen in the site a sequencer kind of the 909, or something similar to the Drumazon plugin from d16 group?
this one here sends midi out to the unit and can be used to sequence but not really precise.

by the way this max is great and very handy!
