  1. 'Deactivate Notes for selected pad' button for monophonic sequencer

    If a clip contains notes that are both muted AND un-muted you can use the 'Deactivate Notes for selected pad' as a sort of A/B flip. As an example you could have two different kick patterns in the same clip, within the same note lane, and alternate between them with the 'Deactivate Notes for selected pad' button. The activated pattern would deactivate, and the deactivated notes would become active.

    It would be a button you could press and hold. While pressing and holding this button, when you press a pad to select it all the active notes corresponding to that…

    • Shift State Session Navigation in Mixer and Meter Modes

      One has to switch to session mode and press shift to move the mixer and meter mode grid over by 8 tracks and then back to Meter or Mixer mode.
      Since work is done in Mixer & Meter mode in groups of eight, maybe the arrows in Mix and Meter Mode could become 'bank by 8' arrows?
      Left moves grid left 8 steps, right moves grid right 8 steps, etc...

      An option to switch arrows from single track movement to bank x8 movement would be excellent.

        If the controller has dedicated arrow buttons, then shift + the arrow buttons will move in increments of 8 in these modes.

        If the controller doesn’t have dedicated arrow buttons, I suppose an option could be doable. However, that option would likely affect all modes that navigate the grid selector. Would that be suitable?

      • matrix meter and fader improvements

        - Velocity sensitive adjustment of faders on the matrix by holding a button and tapping the next button to send a value in between.
        - For non-velocity matrix controllers, double buttons to access values in between the 8 buttons.
        - Invisible faders on top of the meters in meter mode.

        • Arsenal Editor

          Arsenal Editor ( like D.D.C editor ) that has all every txt files for settings.
          but it's more user friendly.
          I can change every txt files's settings in this Arsenal Editor at once.

            The settings files used in Arsenal are very simple to edit so they’d don’t require an editor. DDC settings files, by contrast, are extremely complex and so they do require an editor.

            That said, an editor would be convenient, but would add cost to the products and so it isn’t justifiable as a standard feature. It may be possible to offer as an optional add on though.

          • Ability to do Step Automation like in PXT Live

            I would like to be able to use a step sequencer on the push 2 and automate parameters with step automation like in PXT Live on the Push 1. Extremely handy.

            • HazMap Track Modes: Add paged variant

              This would allow for multiple pages of track-based HazMapping in each instance of a HazMap Track Mode.

              • Modular Session_Split Mode or Variations

                A slew of _SPLIT Modes would be very useful.
                All the modes are so useful, more _split combos would be very helpful.
                Modular _splits would be epic for modes that are applicable, allowing for user customization.

                Examples:
                1. Mix_Meter SPLIT Mode (would be literally the best clip grid midi mixer on the market when using a controller with faders and grid such as LPC MINI.)
                Just think about how useful all those functions and visual feedback would be together on one page!

                2. Chop_Mix (view play location in clips and mix /mute /solo / arm controls all on the same…

                    • Option to have step-sequencing apply to the playing (not the selected) clip on the current track

                      This would allow to stay focused on a step-sequencing clip, like in pxt-live.

                      • Matrix vertical split option to configure a mode for the top lines and another for the bottom lines.

                        I would like to use 4 lines of global user matrix mode at the top and 4 lines of cue snap mode at the bottom. In fact I only use 4 lines of each but I would like to display all at the same time without the need to change the current mode

                        • Do not display all cues on the Matrix Cue Mode : only those filtered by name

                          Not all the cues are relevant to be launched in Cue mode. Some cues can be used only as simple information or ClyphX X-Cues.

                          A simple usage could be to previx with "_" the cues to be launched, and ignore the others.

                          I suggest a global parameter editable by the user :
                          FILTERED_CUES=_*

                          For more general usability, I suggest using regular expressions matching (https://docs.python.org/2/library/re.html) or at least joker style : '_*', or name begin filter '_'.

                          If not set, cue filtering is disabled.

                          • Song mode : Identify Specific Cues for songs to split the whole set, and use them to filter Matrix modes

                            I would like to split the whole set in songs. When playing a song I would like the matrix modes only to display elements related to the current playing song.

                            To achieve this, I would like to filter cues related to song start time, for exemple with a prefix "s_".

                            With two songs "song1" and "song2", I would create a cue for each at begin time named "s_song1" and "s_song2".
                            When playgin song1, only the cues between 's_song1' and 's_song2' are displayed on the Matrix Cue Mode.
                            In Matrix session mode, If I name a scene "s_song1" and another "s_song2",…

                            • Choose color for cues in Matrix Cue mode

                              I would like to choose a specific color for each displayed cue in Matrix Cue mode.

                              This is very helpful to identify a key event like song start or verse or chorus.
                              I would like to give each song a different color, and the same color code for chorus (red) and verse (blue) to all songs.

                              I suggest a global parameter editable by the user :
                              CUE_COLOR_${CUENAME_PREFIX}=$Color

                              For example :
                              CUE_COLOR_RED=Verse

                              ...would set to the red color all cues with name starting with "Verse".

                              • Create a new encoder mode for navigation

                                This feature is based on the "song mode" and "song order" features.
                                I would like to use a new navigation encoder mode to navigate in the whole set with :
                                - an encoder to jump by song cues
                                - an encoder to jump by inside-song cues (or all clues, if possible, using a modifier like shift )
                                - an encoder to jump by inside-song scenes (or all scenes, if possible, using shift a modifier like shift)

                                These encoders are mainly to be used in STOP mode. Immediate Jump is recommanded (no quantization).

                                  • ASCII key commands assignment

                                    It would be great to be able to assign ASCII key commands to buttons in the Kaunch Control XL Arsenal scripts. This would mean we could trigger any function in Ableton to any free button.

                                    There are some functions which aren't available in the ClyphX like "Command M" MIDI Map assignment for example. among many others.

                                    • Midi capture mode

                                      Captures chords and and single notes from a midi clip and sorts them on pads. Same as pxt live plus but add a playable 2 octaves above it like the other modes had. Being able to use this in a drumrack would be cool too, but at the least basic capture is nessary

                                        Modes of this sort are planned, but likely won’t make it into the initial release as they can’t be accomplished within a control surface script alone (they require 3rd party software such as MT Player, which PXT-Live Plus uses).

                                        Update: A mode (Note Capture Mode) that captures from clips is available now. It does not allow single pads to play chords however, just single notes. What I said above still applies to having pads play chords.

                                        I just discovered hazmapping and it's great ; what I would like to do is map 4 parameters (volume, one-knob filter, and 2 effects for exemple) on 2 tracks, this will create a good template for djing.

                                          Each instance of the HazMap Mix Mode can control multiple parameters across 8 tracks. The number of parameters depends on the number of Encoder Accessory Buttons available. For example, you’d get 4 with the APC mini and 8 with the Push controllers.

                                          That said, it sounds like the mode already does what you need. If that isn’t the case, please clarify what it is that you’re trying to do that you’re unable to do with the mode currently.

                                        • general mackie control arsenal script

                                          an arsenal script which would work with any midi controller that supports the MCU protocol, and function exactly like the standard Live mackie interface would with that controller, but you could link it with other scripts.
