I just wanted to share that I’ve been working on a simple app to turn your Push2 into a standalone MIDI controller specifically designed to work with Pyramid. I named it “Pysha”. This is particularly interesting for Push2 owners that want to go dawless but still want to keep using their Push. The app has to run on a computer connected to the a Push2 and to a MIDI interface, but I made it so that it can run on a tiny RaspberryPi and you can finally leave your laptop at home
Here’s the source code and information about how to set it up (and customize it a bit), including some pictures which I also add in this post: https://github.com/ffont/pysha
Running it requires some basic development skills or, well, be adventurous with the terminal. It is quite easy anyway.
I plan to add further integration with Pyramid, including track muting/unmuting, but this will need some firmware update on the Pyramid side (hopefully will happen at some point). Also the polyphonic aftertouch messages won’t work with Pyramid, but you can still use channel aftertouch. I also requested Squarp team to incorporate a feature to be able to at least transmit polyphonic aftertouch messages when received on the input, so maybe this will happen at some point.
Let me know what you think and I’m open to contributions
