    Gener8

    by gigi.antani » Wed Dec 11, 2013 5:54 pm

    Hi, i've a lot of problem with Gener8 and i did'n find any informations about it.
    First question: it's normal that my new novation launchpad s doesn't light its buttons when i press them? (in ableton live i tested the device, it works)
    second: when i configure the module (launchpad) the first column of the module is linked to the second column on the launchpad.
    Tks

    Hi Gigi,

    I'm waiting for a response from Novation on this one now, but it would be really useful to see a midi message from the 'launchpad s' so I can sort this out.

    If you can open up the Direct Event module, enable 'midi', and hit some launchpad keys, then mail me back a screen shot?

    Cheers

    Andy T.

    the lights themselves are a different cc value, so one would need to add the cc value equal to the lights on it to make them set off(or on)
    couple years late to the quarry i know however that is the problem, u need to add in the values for the lights if you want them to work.

    As far as I know, both Launchpad models have the same cc numbers, only there is a different midi device name, which I implemented into the module sometime ago. I've still not seen it working with my own eyes though so cannot verify, but I've been told it works.

    I will double check about the cc's though. Thanks for the update. :D

    Yes, I had just double checked.

    They are identical. The difference was how modul8 recognises each device.

    Do you run a launchpad with Gener8/Modul8 yourself?

    i do not have a launch pad but i do remember how much this same issue bothered me with a different controller i have in my collection and there for thought i should chime in and help fix it if possible, sadly we have the same problem caused by a different issue(my controllers lights had different cc values then the controls themselves thusly i had to create two notations off one button press)
    really was hoping i could help solve this old problem.
