I'm trying to design a DIY MIDI controller that will have: an 5x4 arcade button matrix for launching clips and scenes in Ableton Live, 4x1 buttons for arming channels, 4x1 buttons for soloing channels, 1 "stop all clips" button, 4 channel level sliders + 1 master, 1 crossfader slider, 8 potenciometers for fx. I want to add 1 encoder to control the tempo, 4 up / down / left / right buttons to move a clip launching "redbox" (like the one you get when you use Akai's APCs for example). If I'll add the said buttons I can reduce the clip launching matrix to 3x4 instead of 5x4. Another thing I might add is 1 / 2 buttons to switch between presets (if possible).
And now for the questions,
1) Is it possible to use an endless encoder with the Brain V1 (I already ordered one)? And if so, can I automatically map it to Ableton?
2) Does anybody know of a remote script the allows for clip launching in Ableton Live? I found 1 but it only shows the red box and I can't move it around and can't launch clips.
3) Is it possible to switch between presets in the Brain V1? meaning, preset 1 sends a certain cc number for button X and preset 2 sends a different one etc.
4) Is there a way to automatically map a crossfader via some remote script or another way.
Thanks a lot and sorry for the long post and my broken English :)
