16 steps sequencer midi remote script

I made some changes on the livid base remote script from amounra, to use it with the qunexus:
it's for live 9.1.4 & later

1 folder to copy to the MIDI remote scripts folder,
and a preset file for the qunexus editor
it uses the channel 9 & 10 so you can change of preset on the fly, to play usual keyboard

some tools comes from the ableton push (loop selection, note repeat,...) so you can look at the manual for professional explanation

clip mode :
delete clip button triggers the previous clip,
duplicate clip button triggers the new duplicated clip
same for delete/duplicate scene and track modes(duplicate scene is the capture and insert scene function)
hold shift to get track mode:
selecting a track will automatically selects the playing clip on it
selecting a group track will unfold/fold it and fold other group tracks in the set

beat repeat :
it needs a beat repeat effect on the track (or the Max Reverser from the qunexus will control it
same behaviour as note repeat

loop mode :
press&hold a pad and press another one to set a loop range
press a pad outside the loop will set a loop range of 1 step,
or double press a pad inside the loop to set a loop in it.
simple press inside the loop selects the page, it will then unfollow the playhead.
reselect the loop range to follow on
start marker : hold the shift button and press a step
jump step jumps 1 step back (so it's depends of the step size),
hold it to repeatedly jump (but that's not strictly precise, tilt the button to adjust)

automation mode:
if you have another controller that controls devices (blue hand): press&hold some step & tweak a knob
or select a device parameter with the mouse & tilt

step sequencer:
simplepress mutes the note, doublepress to delete (there is aspecial button to delete all the muted notes)
hold a step (one blink) to select the note
note velocity : hold a step and tilt
note lenght : hold a step and then select another step on the right to set the lenght
duplicate button duplicates the selected page & the notes inside
hold move page button to follow the playhead
monoseq :
all the notes on the same line
select one note selects the pitch

key mode:
it will not select the note for the sequencer(except for drumrack)

note repeat :
works with the grid(the grid repeat appears when pressing the repeat button)
a quick press&release latches the repeat, or hold it to momentary repeat
pressure controls the velocity
tilt the grid to adjust swing (live will show the value)

to not get lost, I just suggest to put 2 soft sticky markers on the bottom row from pad 4 to 8 and 12 to 15(as on the picture)

I just hope that the McMillen staff will update the firmware, to have the possibility to direct change of preset(and not shit + preset),
and the other possibility to use the left buttons as midi message, to put the switch mode button of that script on the shift/preset button (and octave too)

but the same hardware with colored pads(to get track's label, & a better navigation), and the 16th pad on a straight line, would be just perfect

it's for warped clip, loop activated
press&hold a pad and press another one to make a selection.
the "size" of the pads depends of the grid size(grid 1 -> pad=1bar, grid 1/2 -> pad=1/2bar, etc...)
there is a playhead to see where you are, just give a try you'll see and ear what it does. you can make some chops combined with the duplicate clip, or record & play with it to deconstruct&construct a sample, or whatever

this part of the script (and many others) come from the push's loop selector, so you can look at the live's manual, in adjust loop length, for more precise explanation.
but the doublepress function (from the push, to select just a pad inside a loop) isn't implemented, I have to look at it.
I added the repeat function to the script, I'll post it next time

see the first post for download/detail
I finally put the switch mode button on the left side
so it make more sens, but it's a combinated button and so it needs some practice
duplicate loop button added
& lock button for note mode to play easier with note repeat
some other minor changes

note lenght
for audiotrack:
better navigation through the "view"
start marker, jump backward & step trigger
per-step automation for devices parameters, with tilt or in combination with another controller(blue hand)
this mode is available for midi track too
