Try the '[] down ; down ; down' method

Hi folks,

I recently bought an Akai Key 25. I have no use for the default control scripts where the buttons in the grid control clips (which I do not use). What I need to do is customize each button on the controller in the following ways:

• Individually set a button to function as a toggle or momentary modes
• Led the LED for each button act according to the above mode (if set to toggle, button turns on/off accordingly)
• And if possible, change the MIDI value each button sends (MIDI NOte or CC)

Someone recommended I look into Clyphx for this. Can these (or some of them) above be accomplished with Clyphx?

Thanks for any help

Cheers

None of the things you mentioned can readily be achieved with ClyphX.

But Bomes MT Pro fits the bill to a T.

But you will probably then want to use ClyphX with Bomes MT.

Basically BomesMT takes care of the tasks you mentioned.
Then partly feeding its MIDI output into Clyphx will give you a great interface to Live, doing things easily that would be impossible with just MIDI assigning things in Live.

---------------------------------------------------
Strike that: (not so much the suggestion to use Bomes MT with ClyphX together - this is still a good suggestion, but the claim that this could not be done with ClyphX alone)

To 1:) How you set this up depends on if your controller sends a Note off message on these buttons via just sending a "0" value or via an actual Note off message.

But toggle versus monetary can be done with separated "Start" vs "Stop" actions. (Momentary) Or in the case of toggle with (PSeq) action lists.

To 2:) You can make clyphx send MIDI messages out from the clyphx control surface back to the controller. You would just need to find out what message value corresponds to which color/light on your controller.

To 3:) You can take one Midi message input as the trigger in Clyphx to output another midi message.


That said, it just seems a bit hacky to me. Bomes MT would make this much simpler IMO 8)

Hey folks, I've more recently gotten into DJing and have been creating my setup with m4l devices, etc.

This Clyphx thing seems like the lazy programmer's dream. However, maybe I'm doing something wrong here, but when I use a clip function, in the manual it says it's supposed to act on the selected clip, but when I trigger my Clyphx command the selected clip changes to the empty command clip. Well what's really happening, I trigger an empty clip called [ID] CLIP LOOP ON initially it triggers that clip but does nothing else. I hit it again and it activates the loop on that clip. I'm making sure the clip I'm playing is both selected and has that colored box around it. Can anyone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?

What I need is the ability to hit a button and whatever clip is playing (well selected, the most recent playing) it turns on the clips loop from the current position playing quantized to the current quantization beat settings, sets its length to 2 bars, and finally sets the loop back by it's length, so I can hear a segment I like in a song, hit the button and loop that segment. I'm imagining I would use [ID] CLIP LOOP ON ; CLIP LOOP 2B ; CLIP LOOP < but I have no idea how to get the commands to work.

I've also tried using [] SEL/CLIP LOOP ON AND [](LSEQ) SEL/CLIP LOOP ON with no luck

Ok, I figured out that I just needed to turn off "Select next scene on launch", but now the only command that I'm able to get working is LOOP ON, CLIP LOOP x and CLIP LOOP < don't seem to be doing anything no matter what I try, any help would be appreciated, this starting to get pretty frustrating...

Update: so I just kept trying the same thing over and over and eventually now it works for some reason, pretty stoked.
