Device Overview

Name/Version: MIDI Controls 1.3
Author: killihu  
Description: This plugin sends MIDI control change messages. It allows easy selection and naming of controls.

When using a compatible control surface for Ableton Live:

- Bank 1 controls the knobs.
- Bank 2 controls the MIDI CC selector.

The colors of the plugin automatically change to match the color theme of Live.

This plugin is free. Consider making a contribution if it is useful for you.


v1.3 - Added control to limit the rate at which MIDI control changes are sent. Useful when working with MIDI hardware that doesn't support receiving MIDI control changes at the rate Live sends them. Thanks to Gerrit Elbrink for implementing this feature.

v1.2 – Added “MIDI Controls – MPE” plugin for compatibility with MPE instruments in Live 11.

v1.1 – Now when automated, the automation lane matches the height of the track.

v1.0 – Initial release.

I made for use with my Novation Launch Control. Will be great to receive feedback from Push users.

Hi, a Push user here (both), works flawless, thanks, only the names on the screen do not adopt to the names on the device, it's just knob 1 to 8, I would definitely pay for a commercial device that can do that, anyway,, great device.

Thanks for the feedback Marcus. Send me a message through my website and tell me your email. I will send a modified version for you to test and confirm that the names are shown in Push.

Great, thankyou!! I just send a message.

In case anyone is interested in displaying the names of the controls on the Push diplay, this can be accomplished by using the plugin inside an Audio Effect Rack. A Push user tells me that the macro names of the Audio Effect Rack are displayed in Push.

A simple useful MIDI device. Thanks.
