Device Overview

Name/Version: Trigger 3.2
Author: calvinlanz  
Description: This device triggers midi notes (C1-G3) / auditions sounds in Ableton drum racks for example.

In combination with the Envelope Follower (EF) this is a drum trigger / replacement utility for Ableton. Works great with synths too!




Best result for replacement when peak in the EF goes above half of the screen it's displayed in.

Please note that the button can react glitchy when it is linked up with the EF, which can be a cool thing creatively. Just be aware of it!

It works great to record the output to another channel!


- v.1.2
new design and randomise buttons.
- v.1.3
fixed bugs, newer design, better randomise buttons.
fixed the issue with samples being repeated when sliding
major UI update, found that the size of the button was obsolete and now takes up less space, while still maintaining all functions.
compatible with synths.
exact slot (type or drag) added, random duration, dials to manipulate randomness.
severe layout issues where fixed. usable again.
updated for "dark" theme in ableton. removed the "exact" feature, since you can just use the keyboard for that ;) slight layout tweaks
