Novation Launch Control XL mk2
Midi Translator Pro
Is it possible to replicate on the Launch Control XL the LED states and functionality of the Octatrack’s MUTE/SOLO buttons?
Current MTP file
I currently have the following scenario built out in MIDI Translator Pro and running on my BomeBox:
the first row of buttons 1-8 controlling SOLO 1-8 on the Octatrack
the second row of buttons 1-8 controlling MUTE 1-8 on the Octatrack
when an Octatrack track is not muted, its corresponding Launch Control XL MUTE button’s LED is 100% bright
when I want to mute an Octatrack track, I press its corresponding MUTE button on the Launch Control XL, and the button’s LED brightness goes to 0%
I’m hoping to program the Launch Control XL’s SOLO and MUTE buttons to react to a Launch Control XL SOLO button depress and have their states and brightnesses mirror what the Octatrack’s Trig buttons states and brightnesses are.
The outcome of this future state is to be able to use the Launch Control XL as the sole means of controlling the Octatrack’s MUTE/SOLO Trig buttons when the Octatrack’s Trig Mode is set to ‘Quick Mute’. I hope to not ever touch the Octatrack’s Trig buttons.
I don’t think that the Octatrack is able to send feedback to the Launch Control XL, at least not in a way which is driven by a button-press.
I used to do Crestron AV control programming in a former life, I think we used to latch HIGH/LOW states of buttons to drive HIGH/LOW states of other buttons to accomplish this.
This would involve doing things like:
when SOLO 3 button is active:
- SOLO 3 LED is 100% bright
for tracks which were previously unmuted:
- MUTE LED drop to 50% bright
for tracks which were previously muted:
- MUTE LED remains at 0% bright
Question to the forum
Before I go on a whirlwind development session to try to figure this out, I wanted to find out:
a. if this kind of logic is even possible w/ MIDI Translator Pro
b. if has it been done before and I just need to go digging around
c. can someone point me in the right direction if they think it’s possible
