A tip on the key board shortcuts: Press and hold for momentary toggle (arm, solo, mute, etc.) or continuous trigger (in/decrement volume,
pan, session navigation, etc.).

Selected Track Control


alt Liveoption
for Ableton

* for higher precision add

-key (a.k.a.

) to the key-combo.

** when using the mouse to select a track, this only works with Kimidi. If you use SelectedTrackControl with your MIDI controller, auto-arm only works
when selecting a track via MIDI.

Documentation
MIDI implementation chart / keyboard shortcuts (Kimidi needed)
*** on QWERTZ-keyboards

Z is Y , + is and - is .

Note: Secondary commands are fully functional, they are just visually taken back, so the important commands stick out. Middle C (MIDI note number 60)
is C3.

Customize SelectedTrackControl
Tips for setting up your MIDI controller
All MIDI data is expected on channel 1 (or 0, depends on where your MIDI-instrument starts counting)
Note On-events can be of any velocity (greater 0).
Note Off-events are optional

MIDI CCs if not noted otherwise are expected as relative values (in relative 2s complement format) i.e. to
increase, send a value of either 1, 2, up to 64. To decrease send 127, 126, down to 65.
The keyboard shortcuts trigger MIDI CCs with value 5 (1 for higher precision) to increase and value 123 to decrease (127 for higher precision)

To debug MIDI messages use MIDIMonitor (on Mac OS X).


To inspect which MIDI messages are sent by the keyboard shortcuts, monitor the virtual MIDI port Kimidi Input

If you customize STC itself, check Lives Log-file for errors
