Hi all,

I'm in the process of making some Max for Live "CC Sender" templates for use with Reason - to allow for some real-time control and automation over Reason devices when ReWired. I will of course share these when they're finished! However I am struggling with the MIDI Implementation chart that Props publish here. Although apparently for Reason 10.1, it doesn't have any information on Europa, Grain, Radical Piano or any of the Soundiron instruments... :roll:

Does anyone know where I might be able to find these?

For bonus points, if anyone has similar lists for....
- Korg MonoPoly
- Kong Polysix
- the three new Noise Engineering devices

that would also be super helpful!

So, did you get a chance to find any info about these devices and build any?
I am struggling too to find the cc numbers inside ableton which unfortunately are not numbered.

Yes I have built a few! So far, there are CC senders for Combinator, Granada, Humana, Klang, NE Basilimus, NE Manis Iteritas, NN-19, NN-XT, Pangaea, Subtractor. You can find them here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zdgyosv035yg ... N74ba?dl=0
- the Max CC Sender is also in that folder, which you will need to use the templates.
- should be pretty self-explanatory, but to use: add the rack to an Ableton channel, route the "external instrument" to the corresponding instrument you wish to control in Reason. The macro knobs in Ableton will now control those parameters in the Reason device, and can be automated in session or arrangement view just like a native device. (You can even modulate them with LFO devices which has the potential for some real madness).
- Limitations: control is one-way only (ie. if you change a control in Reason it won't be reflected until you change it in the Ableton device). You are also limited to parameters that can be CC controlled (I've tried to pick the most useful ones but feel free to change them).

Hope they are of some use. I will eventually get round to making a few more, though it's tricky without knowing the Midi CC implementation for any of the new devices... (I'm looking at you, Props)

I have build a couple of Max for Live Templates a couple of years ago. But if i remember right, i then found it better to communicate via Remote and not CC, so that you get bidirectional control. It was a bit tricky though to evade feedback.
