Thanks for the input, thunderfingers!
The two pins connecting the left side of my cross fader came off while I was working this past weekend. I would like to buy a new replacement to solder back on, but the Livid store doesn't have an option for it anymore. I submitted a support ticket and was told to buy:
Hi Moon - Thank you for the response...further to the LIVID email 10 days ago:
I apologize that we did not ship your order.
I'm sorry that we missed your refund request until your forum post.
I'm transferring you to Rachel, who can get this sorted out for you.
As David was a Kickstarter backer #202, yet to receive my minim. Emailed via Kickstarter and heard nothing. Opened a support query and have heard nothing. Please inform me of the situation.
OH never mind, I had it backwards. On the advanced digital Input File:AdvancedButtonHeader.jpg the positive side #2 can be a common ground for buttons 1-8 on the neg side!
I've had a Cntrl:r for a while now for DJing and it has bee great but I want to move more into live stuff triggering drums. I've added the Drum Steppr but having a few problems with it.
@PremEyE: I can confirm #2, and I think it's the same issue as #1 at it's root. I'm not sure if it's the script causing this or a firmware problem, but I'll get it sorted and get back to you. Thanks for reporting :)
Hi, I just purchased a Base controller to use with my lighting software. I'm new to this midi stuff, and i'm still learning the editor. I'm having an issue making the buttons do what I want them to.
Hi all, I have build a custom controller with the brain2 and i m modifying amounra`s script. I m no programmer.
session = SessionComponent(15, 3)
session.name = 'Session_Control'
matrix = ButtonMatrixElement()
matrix.name = 'Button_Matrix'
scene_launch_notes = [31,47,63]
scene_launch_buttons = [ ButtonElement(is_momentary, MIDI_NOTE_TYPE, 0, scene_launch_notes[index]) for index in range(3) ]
#track_stop_buttons = [ ButtonElement(is_momentary, MIDI_NOTE_TYPE, index, 52) for index in range(8) ]
for index in range(len(scene_launch_buttons)):
scene_launch_buttons[index].name = 'Scene_'+ str(index) + '_Launch_Button'
#for index in range(len(track_stop_buttons)):
# track_stop_buttons[index].name = 'Track_' + str(index) + '_Stop_Button'
#stop_all_button = ButtonElement(is_momentary, MIDI_NOTE_TYPE, 0, 81)
#stop_all_button.name = 'Stop_All_Clips_Button'
#button_notes = [15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,60,61,62,63]
for scene_index in range(3):
scene = session.scene(scene_index)
scene.name = 'Scene_' + str(scene_index)
button_row = 
for track_index in range(8):
button = ButtonElement(is_momentary, MIDI_NOTE_TYPE, CHANNEL, (track_index * 3) + scene_index)
button.name = str(track_index) + '_Clip_' + str(scene_index) + '_Button'
Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance !
Been a slight change of plan, looks like I could be doing some capacitive sensing stuff with Arduino with the Livid using more traditional control surfaces, although a friend did mention to me about the Sharp GP2D12 and then using that with a 5v power supply, although I'm slightly apprehensive about adding a power supply to the board but the idea of being able to control filter/amplitude in such a way is appealing.
Received this advice from Cell DNA developer at
Livid Peter Nyboer a few years ago:
All the data from your session is saved to a user's preference folder.
On Mac, it's : <harddrive>:/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Livid/CellDNA/Defaults/
Try deleting this folder : <harddrive>/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Livid/CellDNA/
Delete CellDNA folder to Trash & re-start Cell DNA
Give that a go as a temporary fix.
btw - 1024 X 768 photojepg files might be bit too large. Maybe try 640 x 480.
I put it in my user directory and it shows up (after a BWS restart, the user directory isn't scanned automatically) and I can select it in a track, it shows up as "Code" and "CodeUser1".
But since I don't have the controller, I can't do much more with it...
No problem with freezing on close either.
In the console, I see an error: "Reference Error: "encs_buttons" is not defined. (Code.control.js#250).
I think you should contact the author/manufacturer.
The readme is not helpful either. Since there are livid scripts in the factory folder already, it's not clear to me if these scripts should replace them or how they are supposed to be installed/used. They point to their website but there is no entry for Bitwig/Code...
Hello amounra, can you explain to me step by step how you do this to access the script and change it? I'm having a hard time trying to find it and it would be very useful to me. Thanks
You can find the color map here. What are you using it with? http://wiki.lividinstruments.com/wiki/CNTRLR#22_:_Color_Map
