Another edition of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable Redux, this time at the beautiful Rolex Learning Center at EPFL in Lausanne Switzerland. Together with Marcel Andreas Reimer and Simon Schubiger, on October 20 2017.
Here’s a little fun my son Romeo and I had during school holidays: A Lego stand for Ableton push. Inspired by the awesome Lego DJ Booth recently posted here. Our brick collection’s a bit more limited tough.
Amazingly, the Push perfectly fits into the Lego raster. Coincidence, Ableton engineers / designers?
Next step, make it height adjustable, etc. – and – use it!
I quickly coded a small utility for Ableton Live that allows mapping of controller buttons / keyboard keys to increment / decrement tempo. There are other ways to achieve this (e.g. https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/tempo-mapping-buttons/), however for those with M4L this seems easier and more flexible. It’s obviously not very generic, but can easily be modified to increment / decrement other live parameters in a similar way. Just drop it on an empty MIDI track and map the two buttons.
