Helo Guys, i would like to have a simple ableton live controller running on my grid 128 ( i guess could run on any grid ), the idea is:
- 1st row: SOLO track
- 2nd row: MUTE track
- 3rd to 8th row: VU of the track
For scrolling horizontally, holding a button on columns_total -2 and pressing columns_total -1 would go 1 track do the right and the reverse ( hold -1 and press -2 ) would go 1 track to the left.
Specifically speaking, some features that would be nice to see an example:
- Display the VU on the grid
- Bind / Unbind VU to different tracks
- Syncing button states with ableton ( for instance you mute with the mouse and the monome updates )
- Pressing and holding buttons
Due to my way of working, i believe i would probably have a few javacript objects to handle the “application logic”, for instance holding and syncing button states, instantiating a dynamic number of VUs and Buttons, […] depending on the size of the grid and hopefully in the future saving and sequencing presets.
Since i’m very new to monome, i’m wondering if i’m re-inventing the wheel or if there are patches around that should work well as reference and make all this jazz much easier ?
Thank you very much, i really appreciate what i’m finding here and how people are friendly and open about stuff.
I’ll definitely share all the work i create for the platform.
