Device Overview

Name/Version: Safe Push Performance 1.2
Author: Because789  
Description: This device allows you to disable potentially dangerous or useless buttons on Push during a live performance.

Set up:

- load the device to a hidden place in your set (initially all buttons are enabled)
- disable (toggle off) the buttons you want to secure in Note mode
- click the Save button behind "Note Mode"
- disable the buttons you want to secure in Session mode
- click the Save button behind "Session Mode"
(note: All On/All Off just set the state of all buttons but hasn't an effect on the presets until they are saved)
- choose if you want to use "Hold Shift + Select" as toggle ("Tog") or momentary ("Mom") switches
- save with your live set

Features:

- when switching between Note and Session mode, the previously saved presets will be loaded
- hold Shift + Select allows you to temporarily enable buttons:
- in momentary mode they are enabled as long as you hold "hold Shift + Select"
- in toggle mode they are enabled until you press "hold Shift + Select" a second time OR until you switch mode (Note/Session)
- if you navigate to the device you can enable the buttons one by one with the knobs on Push, but the states will be overwritten as soon as you press Note, Session or hold Shift + Select

Limitations:

- the device assumes that Push is running and properly set up/connected to Live
- it only works in Push default mode (User mode scripts like PXT-Live are not affected)

ATTENTION: enable all buttons before you delete the device from your set!!! ([closebang] is still not working properly with Push)

Would be nice to be able to disable the up/down buttons ONLY when in note mode but not in session mode. Every time i hit one of those during a performance i get crazy results if i forget to switch to session mode first.

@synnack: I added more controls to disable in v1.1 and it's now possible to disable Up/Down Arrow button. The behavior you're asking for you get like this:

- load device, keep all buttons enabled and press the Save button behind "Session Mode"
- disable Up/Down Arrow and click Save behind "Note Mode"

When you then switch between session and note mode you'll have what you want. Use hold Shift + Select to enable the buttons momentary if needed.

Btw: Sometimes the presets are not recalled properly when you save a set with the device in, close and open it again (it might be a m4l bug, but I have to investigate more). That's very annoying, but during a session it shouldn't be a problem. Justs make sure to check the setting on the device after you opened a set...

can you add the new "Push" tag for this device?

wow, this is *veryveryvery* useful, thank you so much!!

hey, I was wondering if you think it would be possible to disable arbitrary scene launch buttons in Session mode? in my live rig, the bottom three scenes are full of misc clips that should never be launched as a scene, but I have accidentally launched those scenes a few times when trying to quickly launch a nearby clip... I would love to be able to disable the bottom three scene launch buttons!

thanks for building this, it's getting active use in live performances. :D

ahah, opened up the m4l patch and figured it out myself. :)

maybe a feature worth considering for the next version?

Very nice device! I was wondering if it is possible to map the CC value from the disabled knob. I would like for instance to disable the swing knob and map that knob to another thing,


Awesome! awesome, awesome. Just this last weekend I managed to delete one of my major midi tracks in the middle of my live set!!!

No more! Thanks heaps!

Hi,

Is this device still working. I have attempted to set it up, loaded it on a track (tried midi and audio), disabled Delete for both note and session modes, saving each time. But I am still able to delete. Am I missing something in the set-up?
