Changing Setlist Select direction on Nav Pad

Postby Faldoe » Sat Apr 18, 2015 8:56 am

I have 4 setlists for each of my software Loopers in Ableton Live. It would be much easier for me to scroll through them by using the Up and Down directions on the Nav pad versus the Left and Right (current setting).

Is there a way to change that?

Nope, there's no way to do that internally. Preset changing is hardcoded to the left and right portions of the Navpad.

You could rig something up in Live using M4L to send PC messages to the SS, but it would likely be more trouble than it's worth.

Is there any way KM could add that as a feature to choose what the the Direction of the Nav pad does?

I'd much prefer the Up and Down as my method of scrolling through my presets.

I could add it as a feature request for a future update. I doubt that an option like that will ever be included though, but we'll discuss it when the next update rolls around.

I have big feet and it is easier to use my toe area to hit the Up and Down versus the Left and Right.

Is there a way to adjust the Nav Pad sensitivity?

Yes, there is a global sensitivity setting, and also On and off thresholds for each key. You can find these in the 'Settings' section of the Advanced Editor.

Please see if you can add this as an option, I don't see why it wouldn't be useful. It is way easier for me to hit the up and down to change presets.

Well I hate to rain on your parade, but personally I prefer to keep things the way they are for setlist selection.
But I certainly couldn't complain if it was a clickable option.
I find using the side of my foot works great to select right and left.
