Since having Novation Impulse I've been desperate that there is no way to use it for specifying which tracks to record.
So as Live9 scripts are now opened I decided to try modifying the scripts.
I have no idea of how to program Ableton and python :) so I just stated moving forward the direction.
So far by analyzing the scripts I've added an option to swicth on or of overdub button on Shift+Rec.
Yes, did you know that Ableton scripts can use Shift button? for example in arrangement view, shift - forward sends you to the last known point and shift+ back send you to the beginning.
So my hope is that I could make recording the tracks you want and I think we can put this on shift+mute buttons. But this all requires extra work and extra investigation.
In the meantime, you can try my new script with Shift+Rec button.
I have a fork of Ableton 9 scripts.
folder is called add
You need to create a folder Novation_Impulse2, put all *.PY files, restart ableton and select control surface.
Shift + mixer buttons are now record buttons. They are backlit according to the record state.
Mixer button 9 is an overdub button (regardless of shift).
In clip mode Shift + clip is a clip stop.
Shift + Play is an undo button.
Shift + Stop is stop all clips button.
use shift+transport for stop all clips, metronome and undo actions.
If only one track is armed make it selected.
