Simplified Ableton Push Color Palette

A simplified Push color palette for building custom devices. Designed to maximize contrast so different colors can be distinguished easily.

For more information on how to set Push colors in User Mode, see Julien Bayle's guide @ http://julienbayle.net/ableton-push/#usermode

Here's an even more stripped-down high-contract palette. This is probably what I will use in practice. "HI" means bright. "LO" means dim.

BLACK = 0

WHITE_HI = 3
WHITE_LO = 1

RED_HI = 120
RED_LO = 7

ORANGE_HI = 60
ORANGE_LO = 10

YELLOW_HI = 13
YELLOW_LO = 15

GREEN_HI = 21
GREEN_LO = 23

CYAN_HI = 33
CYAN_LO = 35

BLUE_HI = 45
BLUE_LO = 47

INDIGO_HI = 49
INDIGO_LO = 51

VIOLET_HI = 53
VIOLET_LO = 55
