With an Arduino Uno, Ableton Live 9, Max for Live and select tools you can make your own analog controller for Ableton Live! In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to get started using analog components via an Arduino Uno to control digital devices inside Ableton Live. #Arduino & Ableton Live - How to connect an Arduino MIDI Controller to ABleton Live 9 on WindowsArduino MIDI Library (OFFICIAL): Ableton + Arduino. This thread is archived. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. View discussions in 1 other community. 35 points 1 year ago. Is the Arduino receiving MIDI data in order to control the lights?

These devices allow you to connect, control and monitor Live with a range of innovative technologies and communication protocols. Use LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3, Arduino, or littleBits™ to connect up sensors, lights or motors, open your sound world up to the web through JSON-based APIs, or convert OSC data to MIDI data. The list of input and output possibilities for music & sound creation with Live is almost endless.

The Pack consists of 11 Max for Live devices: a toolkit for exploration, or to open up in Max and adapt to your own needs (Max programming knowledge is required for this!). Some devices demonstrate how you can use each protocol to capture different types of data.

You can get the pack using the download button to the right or by forking our repository on GitHub.

Here’s more on how you can use each device.


LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 – Connect an EV3 Programmable Brick to Live and get access to its sensors and motors.

Arduino - Connects switches, potentiometers and other sensors to control Live parameters, or use Live to control LEDs or Servos connected to an Arduino Uno.

littleBits™ - use the littleBits Arduino with other input/sensor Bits to control Live. It also enables events in Live to control your other littleBits modules. Find out more about littleBits at

Camera – fetches webcam data in order to control mappable parameters.

OSC devices

Ableton arduino download

OSC Send – converts any mappable Live parameter to OSC data for sending out of Live.

Ableton Arduino Projects

OSC TouchOSC – allows you to map any controller from any available TouchOSC layout to live elements.

Ableton Arduino

OSC Monitor – a simple but useful OSC data monitor.

Ableton Arduino Free

OSC Leap Motion – uses Leap Motion to generate midi notes with the help of the ManosOsc application.

OSC MIDI Send – sends MIDI note and velocity data as OSC messages to a Processing sketch.

Ableton Arduino Projects

JSON devices

Ableton Arduino Driver

JSON Weather – one of two examples on how to fetch JSON data from the internet, parse it through dictionaries and query specific data content from it.

This example device is powered by the Dark Sky API

JSON Video – the second example device on how to fetch web data in JSON format: uses #ableton tagged looped videos from the online video sharing service “Vine”.
