Device Overview

Name/Version: AS40 for Live 8 1.2
Author: pechmann  
Description: Lets you activate and select devices using the APC40's mute and solo buttons. Automatically control eight devices per track or use markers to expose them to the APC individually.

1.2: Tap Switch should be fixed now.

Start by selecting an APC40 device in the dropdown menu. You can use this device with Hanz Petrov's APC64_40 remote script as well. (While the device is active, i.e. when the "On/Off" button is set to "On", mode selection for step sequencer, matrix and fader modes will be disabled.)

If "Tap Switch" is turned on, the tap tempo button will toggle between AS40's device navigation and the mute/solo buttons' standard behaviour.

Quick "first eight" mode:
On tracks with few devices, you might wish to have all devices quickly map to the APC. In this case, use "First 8" mode, where the first eight devices found will be controlled by the APC automatically. Across the track, devices will be mapped according to their respective paths, so that a device is mapped to a button pair farther to the right if it appears later in the same chain, then on a chain farther down in the rack, then on a later rack, etc. If the track contains more than eight devices though, it may be a little hard to predict which devices will actually be mapped.

Marking devices and tracks:
For manual control over which devices will be sent to the APC, use "Marked" mode. To have a device map to a mute/solo button pair, add a "?" to the first three characters of the device name, as in "? Auto Filter".

Switching from "All" to "Marked" on the "On tracks:" toggle, you can mark tracks in the same way, adding a "!" to the first four characters. This will tell the AS40 to use the specified mode on this track, but to use the other mode for all unmarked tracks.
