• Up to 8 NRPN messages per device
• Multiple devices can be stacked
• Setup parameters in NRPN or MSB/LSB
• Bidirectional control and visual feedback
• Record automation directly from your
• MIDI Learn function for easy parameter and
data size setup
• Adjustable data rate and redundancy filters
• Configurable MIDI Thru Filter

NRPN Gen 2 is the sequel of the previous version for which I got great support from the Ableton Live users community. Thank you for that!

Also big thanks to Ableton and Cycling’74 for such wonderful and inspiring tools.

I wrote this new version from scratch. It includes many new features. Some of them was already planned since the first version, some are new ideas, and some was requested by users.

Please read the user guide in full. You will find essential information needed to success on the utilization of the NRPN Gen 2 Max for Live device.

All the best,
Gustavo Bravetti

Very nice indeed!

@S4racen, thanks! Specially consediring yours ;)

Super nice and helpful.
I'll receive a Prophet Rev-2 tomorrow, that's what I call perfect timing !

Oh and this manual is a jewel of explanation about MIDI and about how Live handles it. Thanks again.

@chapellerfou, enjoy your Prophe Rev-2! And glad you found the user guide useful. :)

Great Tool! Cheers!

Thank you so much for developing this. The manual is so good in explaining the NRPN in the midi world!

Does this work with ableton 9? :)

It would so cool to have this device (or a similar device) also manage SysEx messages. It would be the perfect complement not only to hardware synths that use SysEx, but also to Omnisphere 2.6 hardware integration!

Thank you for creating this very useful and flexible tool! It works very well with the Prophet Rev2, and since it's scalable, you can easily expand the number of controls when needed. Great work!

Nice utility! Was looking for something to test out the NRPN control of my Electribe ESX, and this device made the mapping super easy! Thanks for the efforts!

( And for anyone who might be interested: It was possible to control the Electribe ESX Part parameters through NRPN, but due to the lacks of NRPN protocol, it wasn't possible to say, map LFOs to multiple parameters for simultaneous automated control, at least not without weird things starting to happen! Still, very much usable if you just want to control the parameters from Ableton and only want to automate one thing at a time! )
