CrossFire Turns Akai Fire Into Powerful Ableton Live Control Surface

Isotonik Studios has announced CrossFire, a control surface script for the AKAI Fire that turns the controller into ‘a powerful Step Sequencing, Note Playing, Drum Triggering, Session Controller’ for Ableton Live.

Features include:

  • Step Mode – for step-sequencing into MIDI Clips with powerful step editing features that allow you to modify aspects of steps such as their velocity and position.
  • Note Mode for playing instruments with various scales and layouts.
  • Drum Mode for playing Drum Racks or other drum-like instruments. This Mode includes 16 Levels functionality for playing a drum sound at 16 different velocity levels. Also included is Cycle Sequence functionality, which allows you to record and playback sequences of one or more notes from a single pad.
  • Performance Mode for launching, duplicating and deleting Clips and Scenes. This Mode also includes the ability to stop, mute, solo, select and arm Tracks.
  • Unique Lock Controller to Track feature so that you can remain in control of a track even though Live’s focus is elsewhere.
  • Chain and User Chain Modes for controlling parameters of the selected Drum Rack pad with easy to use and intelligent user mapping capabilities.
  • Mixer and User Mixer Modes for controlling parameters of the selected Track with easy to use and intelligent user mapping capabilities.
  • Global Mode for controlling global parameters such as tempo and global quantization.

      1. I’m using Live and an old Novation Zero SLMK2. With all the controllers available for live it’s the only one with push I think that map directly your 8 Macros when you click on the effect. I wish they create a new one similar but smaller cause a lot of buttons and pads are not necessary instead of those devices with lot of small buttons for sequencing or launching tracks…

  1. I think Isotronik should have make it the other way around, they should turn ableton controllers in fl studio controllers because there are a million ableton controllers and only one for FL Studio…

    But ok if they think thats a good idea…
