Is this just for people using that Ipad app, or is this a stand-alone re-mapping of push pads? And if it is, does it interact with Push's scales and change as you change scales in push (I'm guessing that would not be possible since it is a programmed user mode... )? Does it use all the chromatic notes or is it set to one particular scale? And most importantly... Is this something you are sharing with us or just showing us what you did? cause I can't do that on my own (I'm really not even sure what's going on there, but it does look like it would be fun to play with)
Sharing is Caring... Unless it's some type of STD.
The is a stand alone mapping of the Pxt Live Plus - User mode pads. Yes this scale uses all 12 keys so you can make any chord you want. Pretty much. It remains as it is and can't be adjusted in any way. No iPad required.
I will post up the file when I get home from work this afternoon.
More info on the scale can be found in the actual Polyplayground app and a few videos floating online however I might make a video of the chords I'm familiar with for this scale.
Please note though that the scale I use is an inverted version of the scale presented in the video. So the shapes for the chords will also be inverted or the mirrored opposite of what is shown in the video.
Thank you, Seems to be working, being that I am musically challenged it's going to take me some time to figure things out... But playing in color groups seems to make beautiful chords, So I like it already (it looks and functions exactly as yours does in the video). I think this will be pretty popular... So get ready to be asked if it is possible to have led feedback from recorded clips a lot.
Yeah so the way Mike Gao had designed the polyplayground layout is intended for users to work with colour coordination also so you will notice when you jump from colour groups that are relatively related e.g. red - pink - purple - dim purple a lot of those colours will likely fit together one way or another in a chord progression.
I too am musically challenged and this layout really removes the barriers of needs to learn scales on a traditional instrument.
Hey Stray... Is there any way to load the file (UserModeMap.py) back into PXT-Live Plus Editor....?
I have one of the sucky Push units that have some off colors, so my blue Full and blue Half are showing up almost the exact same on the right side of my push but is showing up ok on the left. I was going to load up this map and reduce the brightness to Blue Dim for my troubled leds. (also I can't tell the difference between Full, Half and Dim in the Editor box color edges... So I guess that would be a request if that Editor-project is still active)
willyum, close the editor, then place the file in the same directory as the editor. After doing that, you'll be able to edit the file with the editor. Regarding colors in the editor, good point. I'll see if I can come up with a way of displaying different levels of brightness. LED feedback is not really doable without putting significant restrictions on the notes and channels that could be used in User Mode. I intend on looking into allowing more than one User Mode though, so it could be possible to have one of them allow feedback, it would just need to be more restrictive than the other User Modes.
Thanx, got it loaded... And actually, found that it was just a couple 'Blue Full' that got missed. I switched them to Blue Half and everything is in order. Looking forward to any upgrades that may come... you always make awesome stuff.
Haven't seen you post this great stuff up on the Ableton PUSH forums yet... Was curious to see what people thought of it. Also here is the file where I updated the Blues that were on full but supposed to be on half (think it was only 4 pads)... dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/82460209/UserModeMap.py
