Hi, I just unboxed my CNTRL:R and downloaded the Script V2, will try it for the first time, I have Live 9.1.1 though, I saw it on Wiki that it's required like 9.1.5 and up so my question is, if I install V2 will it not work at all or will it just not work it fully (i.e. will it work like V1 perhaps..) I'm wonderign if I should just stick to V1 for now before installing anything at alll...
Ok.. thanks.. one last question.. sorry for the bothering... do I need to have Max for Live installed to run V2 once I update Live to 9.1.5?
You don't need Max for Live for the script to run, but if you want to use the Stepprs (drumsteppr, synthsteppr and accent) then you need Max for Live, because they are Max devices.
I update to the latest live 9.1.6 x64 on windows 8.1 and installed the new V2 script BUT
now my controller wont recognized at all from live!
I don't even have the red square around the clips :/
and when I return back to v1 everything is back to normal... when back to V2 nothing
at the wiki:
...and select "CNTRLR Control Surface" or "CNTRLR Control" as the input and output ports.
to me is just the classic "Cntl r" on input/output ... no "CNTRLR Control Surface" no "CNTRLR Control"
don't know if that matters at all. for now staying with v1 but im very very hot for v2
Unfortunately I am using a Macbook and not a Windows machine, but I will have look at it on my windows laptop that I use for work and try it out. I'll let you know when I have tried this out.
I have try everything without any luck at all!
even left contR v2 alone in the folder after a deep clean-up/reboot of the system! the same problem!
v1 still flawless!
OK Give me a few minutes and I'll see how it works on my windows laptop.
still nothing here! also after the many many tests (from firmware reupdates to system cleanups etc) i lost the lights off the encoders completely and couldnt get them back! even v1 stopped responding!had almost a hart-attack with the thought that my cntlr could be dead! thank god when i hook it on the macbook (live 9.1.5) everything worked perfect inc the v2 script! on my pc i have the latest 9.1.6.so it is me the problem (PC) and not the script!thanks very much for trying to help Mike, appreciated!
Can you please send me the log.txt from Ableton's preferences? Here's some info on where to find it:
Are there any sends in your Ableton project? If not, can you try adding some sends (make sure there's at least 1) to your project before adding CNTRLR_2 as a control surface? Please let me know what happens....
everything works perfect after deleting live's pref. files and re-set the program from scratch!
happy mode on!
and v2 is so so so AMAZING!!
thanks guys :-)
Glad you got it finally working, have fun with the script, it is indeed amazing.

Thanks for the reply. I updated i to live 9.1.6 and installed it now. I'll be in Austin on December 2nd and would like to know if you guys have any kind of "crash training" on site for the CNTRL:R.. or..in case you don't... is Livid instruments open for visitors?
We don't have any formal training available, but yes I can give you a tour while your in town!Contact us through our support portal to set up a time:http://lividinstruments.com/helpdesk/
Thanks! Ticket # 970915 opened! Hopefully we can make it for Dec 2nd!
I plan on implementing a user mapping and using only that- as I understand the guide, I push the top right encoder to activate user mapping and go from there. Will I have to push that encoder every time I load up my template?
You can try changing the script, line 459:
I'll have to experiment a little with @mikebosch 's template and the new official scripts to see what sticks for me. Thank you very much for mentioning this Mike, I'll respond in the corresponding threads as questions come up.
If you have any questions feel free to ask. Another template is coming soon with some advanced features to combine DJing with Live performance.
I think I'll just stick with a user mapping for the official MIDI remote script now- I looked through the python files and the LED lights seem more straightforward to set up than before.
I'm not sure if that can be done. I guess you need Amounra for this one. He knows more about how to do it, if it is possible. The thing is that the user mappings are using different channels in Ableton, and these are virtual channels, so I think you would need to do some python scripting in the remote script to get this done.
First of all thanks for the tour, it was very nice to meet the people over there. Now back to the learning curve...
I had exactly the same idea. I found that it is better to have the encoders move the red box track by track or scene by scene, instead of 4 tracks at a time. This way you could scroll through your set in an easier way and if you would want to move in steps of 4 tracks/scenes, you could always use the shift option.
Really loving the new script! There is a small problem though : the scene select and track select knobs move to high in value so whe you move the dial it bugs and goes way too far rather than to the next track.....
