Not sure if this is the right place for this suggestion but it relates to the editor. I know users have mentioned a way to load pst live plus user mode templates without have to restart live. I agree with that sentiment. We would also need a save as function in the editor if that became an option. Maybe that same method of loading user templates/scripts could be used for chord types, if loading various chord type scripts became an option. Just my 2 cents.
I am having the worst luck with PXT-Live Plus, I don't have a clue of what I'm doing wrong. I used B1 file extractor to extract the .jar file so now I can finally see the folders and the .class files. But Ableton Live isn't recognizing PXT Live Plus.
1st question, is the file suppose to stay inside the original .jar file or do I need to extract the file? If I need to extract the files, do I need to move those files anywhere or do I leave those files in the PXT-Live Plus Editor Folder inside my documents folder.
Also are there any known issues of running Java RE 8 on OSX Mavericks 10.9.5 or do I need to install Java 6. I do not see Java in my Utilities folder but it is on my computer and can be seen on my system preference page. Can you help me out here.
And my final question, I downloaded the Polyplayground .py file made by PXT. Where do I place this script. Sorry I don't know anything about programming. I am a real point and click end user. But I like what I see the things we can do with PXT Live and Live Plus. Thanks here are some more pics of what I just opened. Download AttachmentDownload AttachmentDownload Attachment
I'm not sure what you mean by 'Live isn't recognizing PXT Live Plus', but if you're unable to use PXT-Live Plus with Live, you should resolve that before attempting to do any editing. If you need help with that, please send an email to the support address listed in the back of the manual along with a Log.txt file.
Once you get that sorted out, there is no need to extract any files in order to use the editor, you simply need to make the changes I mentioned in my previous reply. On the last question, if you're referring to one of the files linked in this thread then close the editor, place the file in the same directory as the editor and relaunch the editor.

Hello, First of all I would like to say that I'm really happy that I found this forum!
I have a couple of questions related to PXT-Live Plus Editor: I was wondering if it's possible to change the layout of the notes on ableton push 8x8 grid, in a way that it would act just like my custom monome setup. (please see the attached jpeg, numbers correspond to midi notes, i.e. 60=C3) Is it possible to setup ABLETON PUSH in a way that it would display multiple midi in (send from multiple midi tracks), in this layout? For example: if midi track has sequence of c3 note, key c3 will light up? If other midi track has sequence of a3 note, key a3 will light up? Also in this point I'm curious how note velocity will affect LED color or intensity? Is it also possible to specify it in PXT-Live Plus Editor? I would like to display this kind of patterns on ABLETON PUSH.. (please see attached jpeg below) Here mid-intensity leds correnspond to black keys on the piano (out of scale notes) (sequenced in midi channel and send to my monome midi in channel), full intensity leds correspond to Aminor chord sequenced in another midi channel, and send to monome midi in channel.
Is it possible to recreate this setup using PXT-Live Plus Editor? I would appreciate you help! THANKS!
P.S. One more thing.. What happens when in ableton push normal mode (not user mode), I send midi message from the midi track with the output specified to Ableton Push? Are the notes being displayed somewhere? Are they being displayed on each instrument page?
Welcome to the forum. The User Mode in PXT-Live Plus, which allows you to edit the MIDI notes, channels and LED colors the pads use, purely applies to output. The pads do not accept MIDI input at all. However, this may change in the future.
In Push's normal modes, Live provides an internal bus that sends MIDI data from the current track to the controller to illuminate the pads. AFAIK, you can't change that or override it via track-level routing.
