Hi Zeropoint,

May I ask you what do you mean by "Ableton Live in control" ? I know what is Ableton Live, but does it mean you use it to remote control Resolume?

Would you mind summarizing your setup? Seems interesting.

hi mandawah

yeah I am using Live to DJ the audio and send controller information to Resolume running on the same laptop.

For control I use a monome 40h and Faderfoxes LV2, LD2 and DJ2. I use Monogrid 2 under Chuck for the monome which gives me 8 switchable grids of 8 x 7 buttons. So for example Grid 1 launches audio clips in Live, Grid 2 launches automation dummy clips for audio effects etc. Currently Grid 7 is my Resolume control grid with each of the buttons mapped through Live so I get visual feedback on the monome as to what is currently active. On each deck in Resolume I have 4 layers and 6 columns so Grid 7 is laid out to mirror this. Then for each layer I have a layer select button and a layer stop button situated next to the appropriate row of buttons on the monome. Moving down I have 4 composition FX bypass buttons and then bypass buttons for each of the four effects on each of the four layers. If you press and hold the grid select button on the monome you get a further 56 midi control notes on each grid, giving a total of 896 buttons with visual feedback. Some of these are programmed to launch new decks in Resolume.

I have the channel faders for channels 7 to 10 on the LV2 mapped to layer opacities, with channel 12 set to fade the composition. I also have solo buttons on the LV2 mapped to layer solo in Resolume.

I have a Resolume control group in Live which enables me to show and hide all the clips which are controlling Resolume in some way. I open this out when I'm programming and then hide them all for performance.Now i'm working on creating a whole series of controller clips in Live which I am mapping to the for example I can select a layer then hold the Grid 7 select button, press one of the 56 buttons and it launches a clip in Live which rotates the clip playing on that layer twice on the x axis simultaneously zoom pumping it, applying FX and modifiying the FX parameters in sync.....or anything else you can imagine that is mappable in Resolume.

I also map audio FX that toggle on and off to launch Resolume control clips simultaneously so that an audio effect always has a corresponding effect in the visuals. Using follow actions in Live I can trigger full automation sequences in Resolume so I can concentrate on the audio mix.....or vice versa. I also use warp markers in the audio track to highlight cue points for triggering "one shots" in Resolume.....the possibilities are literally endless......

If you have any other questions let me know......

Hi zeropoint,

thanks a lot for you very detailed reply, I don't regret I asked you the question...

Your setup and the way you use both Live and Resolume with all these controllers is really interesting. I only use a mouse to control Resolume, so I feel a bit old school here ;)

Your reply triggered new ideas in my mind, that's great.

Thanks again, best wishes for your upcoming performances.
