Midimix button light on without default template

Hello, i’m trying this software for turn on the light of the akai midimix, i’ve reading all the post about it (and download the .btmp associated) but i can’t rescue to solve the problem. I got 4 Midimix and they send it note and cc from ch 10, i’m trying to configure it (example: incoming 89 01 40 and outgoing 99 01 00) but nothing happen, the led remain off. If i change the note,cc and channel to default setting from the midimix editor and i set incoming 80 01 40 and outgoing 90 01 00 it’s work. I can’t use the default mapping of the midimix because they enter in conflict with the other midi controller. Please how can i solve it?

Thanks, kind regards

Hi, to turn on an LED on the MIDI Mix you need to send 9x pp 7f and for note off 9x pp 00

x=MIDI Channel 1-16 where x=0-F
pp=note number for the LED

I have included a project file that will toggle ga and turn on-off the button you pushed.
I’m using the same global variables for all notes so they toggle the last state of ga only and not the current note number.

I set both input and output to MyMIDIMIX which is set to aliases as follows:

Ah, I see, it appears the the MIDI MIX LED’s require MIDI CH 1 for feedback irrespective on what MIDI Channel they are sending.

For this make sure that you direct MIDI messages to the MIDI MIX you want based on the incoming MIDI Channel.

Really thanks for your fast response, I’m trying now

Here is an updated DEMO. I’m sending MIDI from a virtual port to the MIDI MIX and have two configured to receive data.

I’m trying to use incoming from 89 to 90 for the led, but nothing. In the first comfiguration file i set in and out: Midi mix, but the controller doesn’t work in ableton if i set midi in in bome. I’m trying now this new file. Thanks

The project file I sent you should work for both forms of note off.

89 01 xx - With any value will send 99 01 00
99 01 xx - With any value other than 0 should send 99 01 7F
99 01 xx - With value of 0 should send 99 01 00

MIDI MIX LED’s note off message to always be seen as note-on with value 0 and
will not respond to 8x note off messages. This is true for most controllers even if they send 8x pp qq for note-off.

All above values are in hex

With this new project file light it’s working without using ableton, but the controller doesn’t work in ableton

I’ve solve it now, really thanks for your help. I just forgot to set the right in and out in the project

The project file I sent you was only for demo purposes for turning on MIDIMIX LED’s and not intended as a full solution for your multiple MIDIMIX devices use with Ableton Live.
I have not translators or thru paths currently set in my project file for communicating with Ableton Live.

I’d probably need to look at your project file and then advise. If you want me to build a complete solution that would be a paid service.

By the way, you should be able to use default mapping on all 4 of your MIDI MIX controllers and then use MT Pro to change the outgoing channel of each controller to your DAW. Then you could use MT Pro to send back to the same channel it receives (modified MIDI Channel) and direct these messages back to the correct MIDIMIX controller based on the incoming channel.
