Arduino To Ableton Live Via Pure DataArduino To Ableton Live Via Pure DataArduino To Ableton Live Via Pure Data

[Spencer] built a controller sending serial data to Pure Data using Firmata Library. The data is processed and sent to Ableton Live via Midi:

It’s still unfinished here. It’s basically opening the communication between the arduino, scaling everything from 0-127 to be compatible with MIDI, then being routed through various CC’s to mac’s IAC driver, which passes the MIDI CC’s into Ableton Live.

So there you have it. A few things are missing, the LED’s still need to be added and tweaked, a problem with there not being enough power to illuminate the very demanding buttons, although I plan to resolve this with an external DC adapter though.

Good job Spencer. Keep on playing.

    its a novation launchpad that i ripped apart! i was going to add a monome but for my first build i thought i’d keep it tame ;)

    This is soooo coool! Well done! I hope I’ll have some setup like that sometimes soon…
