Hi -- I have come up with my ideal mapping for Base to use in conjunction with Push for performance, hoping for any suggestions on how to make it happen (or why it is not possible)...
This is my scheme:
Base turned sideways;
Instead of the remote script, using Livid editor to assign the different midi values & LED behavior, then mapping them in Ableton;
Pads in a standard drum pad layout, so they would only be useful for drum racks. (use Push to play non-drum rack tracks);
Touch faders 1-8 (in reverse order) assigned to macros, fader 9 assigned to crossfader;
Track select buttons doing the same, but in reverse order;
Side buttons (now on top) assigned to reserved midi messages that tell a Max for Live device which track to focus for Base.
To make it work I have to figure out:
If Live track focus changes can be assigned to midi messages, for the global track focus buttons.
If I can cook up a Max for Live device to do the Base-only track focus:
Base is set to a channel that is only routed to the track with the Max device.
Max echoes all Base pad & macro data to a specified midi channel. That specified midi channel is set by one of the "Base-only" focus buttons.
Midi input on each of the other tracks is assigned to a different channel, so only the selected track gets the echoed Base data.
The icing on the cake would be midi sent back to Base for LED feedback.
If I can make all that work then I can control Base's track focus independently of Push/Live focus.
I have programming experience but none in Max, so any ideas or suggestions are much appreciated!
