Drum Rack for using Microtonic with Ableton PUSH

    I created a drum rack for using Microtonic and Ableton Push. The main advantage of doing this is to see the parameters I want to use/abuse in Push when I load up extrenal VSTi inside Push. Here's a video explaining how I did it:

    Of course, you'll need Live 9 and Microtonic (VST version) to run this file. And if you have a Push, then it gets really fun.

    That was really cool! Thanks for sharing.

    I think I should buy me a Push.

    It's a very very cool tool, Magnus!

    Hi guys,

    I own a Livid Cntrl-R and would like to know if you have any idea of how I could use microtonic in a drumrack for the livid Steppr max for live device? I have tried several ways and can get a drumrack setup, but I would like to control the microtonic parameters in the steppr device with the CNTRL-R. If you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know.

    Oh and also I would like to use 2 instances of Microtonic in the drum rack, since I need to fill all 16 pads in the drumrack for the steppr to work with it.

    Keep It Spinnin'

    I found it better not to rack up the instances of uTonic. Instead I configure the parameters for one patch.

    I organise the controls into 4 groups of 8

    1. Master Controls
    1. Mixer
    1. Osc
    1. Noise

    The advantage of doing it this way is..

    1. When you change a preset the parameters update on the push. In a rack they dont
    1. The paramaters display %, Hz, dB, ms, on/off even wave type (Sine, triangle, Saw) on the Push. In a rack they only display 0-127.

    3 Using Device control on the Push I can select the Bank (1-4) using the bank buttons and then access controls using knobs. So its easy to locate, find and control more than 8 parameters with the Push. With other controllers you have to wade through bank up/down buttons.

    Hello rishi,

    I couldn't agree more that having 8 instances of MicroTonic VSTi isn't as elegant/good idea as having just one instance and then 8 channels. But how can you control each of the MicroTonic drum channel parameters separately with Push? Could you please share the .alp file for this?

    This is easily the best Microtonic device for Push (2) out there nowadays:

    And it's free! (It's not made by me!)

    At least for me, this is the first result on Google for "microtonic ableton push", so this might come in handy for others too. That's why I'm posting in such an old thread... :)

    Brilliant! Thanks for posting that. Clearly my video is way WAY old, so I'm very glad to see this update, and in a nice M4L package.
