op1 as a midi controller for ableton live

any tips for accomplishing this? just got ableton and looking to use the op1 in conjunction. assumed it would be pretty foolproof but it’s not working natively and not really finding much in the way of tips through google.


See 13.8 here https://www.teenageengineering.com/guides/op-1/song-rendering-and-connectivity

The control mapping is essential. Should be found through Sparky’s link.

Takes some practice, but the basic functions are accessible from the op-1.

not sure how i missed that or why it didn’t come up.

thx guys!

Has anyone got this working on Live 9.5? I can get the op1 to play notes but none of the other keys are working as expected.

It works well for me. Info and Live script from here…


Don’t forget to read the “Learn how to use it” section.

Fine for me on Windows 10 with Live 9.5…

What are the number buttons supposed to do? With live 9.7 they do nothing.

Hey All! I just joined the forum and am finally diving in on learning to use Ableton & I would like to use my OP-1 as a midi controller. I have already went through 13.8 from https://www.teenageengineering.com/guides/op-1/song-rendering-and-connectivity , but my OP-1 doesn’t seem to be in full controller mode. The keys work for playing sounds and what-not, but none of the other buttons function as intended. The screen on my OP-1 doesn’t show “Sel Track” etc., instead it just shows a picture of my OP-1 Connected to a Laptop with “MIDI MODE” underneath it.
Anyone able to help me navigate through this?

Not sure how to help, but keen to hear what others say

Just to give you an idea, this is what is coming up on my screen

what version of live r u using?
iirc, there were issues w/ newer versions of live.
maybe 9 and up?
i dunno i remember seeing some discussion on here about it.



Awesome! I was able to find a working script on one of the conversations you posted, thank you!
I am using Live 10 suite

For anyone else having the same issue, be sure to remove the dashes “-” from the folder name before moving it to the necessary folder.
The link for the script is here
