Device Overview

Name/Version: MPKmax 1.0
Author: theape  
Description: Control Ableton like a groovebox with the Akai MPK mini. This should make you able to throw out a rough but full grown beat in less than two minutes after instrument preselection. Makes me do at least ;)

Put it on a MIDI track, set in & out ports to the mpk.
Get the full package including a nice live set preconfigured with all the tracks and instruments, a filter for the instrument knobs and the CC presets for the mpk mini editor here:

Pad Bank 1: Play Clip Track 1-6
Pad Bank 2: Play Clip Track 7-12
+ 2 scene pads for selecting clip # to play
CC toggle: Rec ready Track 1-6/7-12
Prog Chg toggle: clip length etc.
Sustain + upper left pad: knobs control vol. 1-6 + master
Sustain + upper second left pad: knobs control fx1 1-6 + master
Sustain + upper second right pad: knobs control fx2 1-6 + master
Sustain + upper right pad: knobs control instrument knobs (apply mpkmaxfilter.amxd, select massive & midi learn them)
Sustain + lower left: play/pause
Sustain + lower second left: overdub
Sustain + lower second right: metronome
Sustain + lower right: undo

Have fun and post some videos :)

Hello Theape,

Liking the concept for your plugin. I know I may be perhaps not just missing something but I cant get it to work. Can you help please?

Could you do a video perhaps?

I have put MPKMAx on midi channel in ableton. Set in out to mpk. how do I launch the clips? I have put them on audio track 2.

Anyway great concept and one I would use as its how I use my MPK to.
