Bitwig is much like Ableton Live, but rebooted, and with many annoyances removed. Thoroughly recommended.
Scripting Bitwig control
- Thomas Helzele did a good one

Irritatingly, the controller scripts go in different places for different platforms and there is no easy way to harmonise them:
%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Bitwig Studio\Controller Scripts\
~/Documents/Bitwig Studio/Controller Scripts/
~/Bitwig Studio/Controller Scripts/
Anyway, could be worse.
The actually-functioning Keith McMillen scripts are on github.

horizontal scrolling seems broken but on certain window managers you can do Alt+vertical scroll.
