Sometimes when you are working on a live set there are little hacks you would love to see. Like a button you press that changes all your effects to a certain mix you like, or plays your clips in a sequence as well.

Last week I found an AMAZING hack that does just that and way more! Oh and it’s free!

Clyphx

ClyphX is a MIDI Remote Script for Live 8.1.5 or later that provides an extensive list of Actions related to controlling different aspects of Live. These Actions can be accessed via X-Triggers (Session View Clips, Arrange View Locators or MIDI Controls). Each X-Trigger can trigger a single Action or a list of Actions.

 

Here is a video demonstrating just one of many cool features.

ClyphX also includes a component called Macrobat that adds new functionality to Racks in Live such as the ability to control Track mixer parameters or send MIDI messages from Rack Macros.

ClyphX also includes extra preference options for changing some of Live’s default behaviors such as the ability to choose to have Track’s automatically Arm upon selection. It really is a rad program that can help you hack some of the functions of ableton. Highly suggest checking it out.
