about the beta not working, i cannot plan in advance what API changes the ableton guys will do !
Yup, they seem to be changing it a lot more often lately, though updating may be a pain, I'd like to hope it's because they're adding more to the api, so it's worth it:)

Thx for the update.

Can confirm this fix works on Beta 9.1.2b1.

Thanks for this fix. I thought I was going crazy when it didn't work. Great product. Saved me $600 over Push...for now, anyway.

Is it just me that the "orient." and "absolute root" are swapped as opposed to what was stated in the documentation?

I did modified MainSelectorComponent.py though, but just to enable sending MIDI messages out in User 2 mode.

Excellent work on the new features btw, mots!

could be i made some mistakes here or there ;)

in the last release beta i added some quick scale feature that allow you to switch rootnote and scale while playing :)
i also fixed a few things around the lock mode in intrument controller and stepseq.

have a try : http://motscousus.com/stuff/2011-07_Nov ... -beta4.zip

I am going to wait for the last beta of live to become the official new version, as this one introduces a compatibility break again, i will then release the new version of L95 officially.

Wow. Quick scale mode root note switching + absolute root = chord modulation grid playing dream come true. :D

Awesome!

dont forget the new diatonic 3rd mode, that also is a killer for chords, in particular modal chords theory

I seem to have discovered some sort of bug. Whole thing freaks out if the project uses group tracks? :?

At first I thought it was a matter of opening larger projects but decided to do a simple test by creating a new empty project and then group some tracks up and immediately the Launchpad (LED) freezes up.

Btw, I'm using Live 9.1.1, not beta. Is this the compatibility break you were referring to?

Also verified that the problem exists in beta2, but not on the last official release.

Hello,

@Urielkael: i fixed the bug with the group track thingy. thanks for reporting.
About the beta, the script is compatible with 9.1.1, but not 9.1.2(beta). i will make it compatible with 9.1.2 as soon that it is released in final.

other big news ! i put together another beta. this beta will for sure be more buggy than the previous one, but there is a good reason for it !
i took the time to add totally new stepsequencer ! this one is closer to what you would find on hardware sequencers, with random functions etc, and also includes what we are used to have now, the scales !

i uploaded this new version on my site at http://motscousus.com/stuff/2011-07_Nov ... -beta5.zip
the updated documentation is inside the zip.

please report bugs, and suggestions ! and have fun.

Hello and thanks A LOT ! I've been looking for a step sequencer for Launchpad for ages, tried a few M4L ones which did not really convince me, until I found yours which is a huge improvement.
One request though : I'd like to print the manual as seen on your web page, but as it's HTML I couldn't do something else than screenprint it, and that's not really working. Would you make it available as a DLable PDF for instance ?
I tried to convert the HTML page to PDF with online tools but the Launchpad images are split between pages...

Thanks a lot for your hard work and especially for the support you provide here, mots : YOU ROCK.

hi all,

i fixed a bunch of bugs in the new step seq. it should be much more useable now.

about the HMTL documentation, i added some css tricks that prevents the browser to span tables over two pages. therefore printing the HTML should be easier now. i know it's as nice as a nice pdf, but i clearly lack the skills to make a nice looking PDF.

i updated the package : http://motscousus.com/stuff/2011-07_Nov ... -beta6.zip

enjoy !

I don't have any printer at home so I took 30mns and made a printable PDF version of the manual.
Here it is if you need it guys ! Enjoy.

For those using ClyphX with a Launch Pad, you might be interested in this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=55&t=202209

Update: I don't think this will work without a Push (I don't think the Push ClyphX script will work for a Launchpad), so sorry if I hijacked the thread, even if briefly..... :)

Hey Mots thanks again for all that you do. I'm glad you posted this as I believe I have to re-download LP95 after upgrading to mavericks and 64 bit live 9.1.1. For some reason since I've done this, launchpad 95 no longer shows up under my MIDI tab in preferences as it did before... I'm sure it's bc the version I downloaded (maybe 5 months ago?) isn't now compatible. Thanks again good sir!
