Description: How to control Ableton Live via an electronic drum pad?

You don’t want to buy or bring a trigger-to-midi interface when you just need one drum pad to trigger one function in Ableton Live. You might have an old rubber drum pad laying around or wan to get a Roland BT-1 trigger and just set this up to trigger through your scenes in Ableton Live’s Session View. This is now possible via a collection of Max for Live devices of mine. This pack will let you control Ableton with drum pad without the need for any extra gear. IF you have an external sound card, you can plug your pad(s) into that.

This is a really good idea! Could it be used to trigger midi notes, with amplitude controlling velocity?
I?ve been looking for a way to play drums with an edrum kick pad and push 2 fingerpads. Right now, the only solution seems to be getting an edrum module just for 1 pad. It?s a bit overkill!

HeyHey - this is not for MIDI note but 'controlling' purposes only. I have some MIDI note device in the pipeline, not set release day set yet. Make sure to b signed up to my newsletter @ to get notified bout that. Cheers Tobi

Hey, thanks for getting back to me. I've signed up for your newsletter.

I'm really hoping theres a way to avoid buying an edrum 'module', just to get kick input. They take up so much space (and money!).
