Device Overview

Name/Version: MIDIdifferentTWO16 0.08
Author: synthesizerwriter  
Description: Kind of an 'Old-school' step sequencer for 'map' control of parameters, but with 16 rather than 8-steps (gasp!). The rotary controls are intended to be controlled via Ableton's 'remote control' mapping - from a set of MIDI Controller sliders, for example.

Inspired by Johan Wallen's question on Max For Live Users group on FB recently...

Two channels... The top channel's 'Not Synced' menu option uses the free-running oscillator with the Rate rotary control, or the other menu options allow Note On messages, Note changes, and various other MIDI messages from the MIDI clip to advance the counter (so any sync is entirely under your control!). The lower channel always syncs to Live's clock (the red/green dot indicates if Live's transport is running (green=running), and you can choose timing values from 'Every Quarter Beat' to Every 8th Bar'.

Note that, the rotary controls (and Step skips) can be used as map targets for Ableton's 'remote control' 'control voltage' system - just take the Map button on an LFO, or the Learn from a MIDI controller, and click on the rotary controls or the 'Skip' square grey buttons (under the step lights) - for these then a multiple slider device like the Novation Launch Control XL would be a very good choice!

When you have the sequence steps controlled, then you can use the 'Map' buttons to control parameters in other devices!

Having separate 'asynchronous' synced and unsynced 16 step parameter-controlling sequencers in one device is the sort of thing you might expect to find in a modular synthesizer, not a DAW!
