In this quick tip, I am going to show you a great MIDI remote script which I found that can greatly enhance your Ableton Live experience both during production and live performance. MIDI Scripts are compiled Python scripts that provide custom support for various MIDI controllers by allowing you to map MIDI note, Control Change and channel messages to common parameters in Live.
The script I am going to show you is a configurable MIDI remote script for Live 8.1.3 or later that allows you to define default settings to use for inserted Tracks. Unlike other remote scripts, this one actually doesn’t work with a particular MIDI controller. Instead, it changes default behaviors in Live that apply when you’re using any MIDI controller, a QWERTY or a mouse.
