MIDI Tricks #3 – Grid Letters (Free Download)


Continuing our MIDI Tricks segment, this time we got something very special for PUSH (1 & 2) users.

This week in MIDI tricks we’re giving you a template that includes MIDI clips for each letter of the ABCs.

All you have to do is to switch to user mode and Launch a clip. You will see the letter of the clip displayed on your grid.


Using Live’s Session View you can then start launching clips by order or even using the Follow Actions to automatically jump between any letter.

You can also arrange any letter clips you want in the arrangment to construct words and sentences.

You also get a custom MIDI Effect Rack to help you control the colors, flickering speed and LED order.

Grid Letters will only work properly in User Mode.

Under Live’s Preferences make sure MIDI output is enabled for PUSH User Mode.
