CC Hijack - New Max4Live Device Now Available

A couple days ago, someone was asking me if there was a way to change MIDI CC messages with a plug-in in Ableton since he couldn't edit them directly on his keyboard. 

As I started thinking through how to make this work it reminded me that I've always wanted to be able to map a sustain pedal to the hold button in the arpeggiator midi device. I decided to try to kill both of those birds with this one stone: CC Hijack. 

You can download the device here for free and be sure to check out the video below to see how it works.

CC Hijack Max4Live Device 1.1

Have you ever noticed that when you midi map a control change message in Ableton Live, you lose that functionality in other instruments? FOR INSTANCE, I’ve always wanted to assign my sustain pedal to the hold button in the Arpeggiator midi device. Unfortunately, if you do that in Ableton Live now, you disable the sustain pedal everywhere else. This device lets you sustain notes as normal, but it also allows the sustain pedal to be mapped to a button, like Arpeggiator Hold. 

The other trick the CC Hijack device does is it can take any incoming control change message and assign it a new number. This is useful if you have a midi controller that doesn’t allow you to change CC#’s on your knobs and sliders.
