Hi,

Just learning how to use this...noticed when I am in session mode, I am unable to duplicate a clip...am i doing it wrong?

Thanks

UPDATE: I think I found a mistake? in ClipActionisComponent.py changed "should_laucnh" to TRUE

Code: Select all

def duplicate_clip(song, slot, should_launch = [b]True[/b]):
	try:
		clip = slot.clip if slot is not None else None
		if clip is not None:
			track = slot.canonical_parent
			view = song.view
			try:
				if should_launch:
					start_duplicate = clip.is_playing
					target_index = list(track.clip_slots).index(slot)
					destination_index = track.duplicate_clip_slot(target_index)
					view.highlighted_clip_slot = track.clip_slots[destination_index]
					view.detail_clip = view.highlighted_clip_slot.clip
					start_duplicate and view.highlighted_clip_slot.fire(force_legato=True, launch_quantization=_Q.q_no_q)
			except Live.Base.LimitationError:
				pass
			except RuntimeError:
				pass

	except (AttributeError, TypeError):
		pass

you are right the duplicate button does not work for some reason in the launchpad pro scripts.
i could not figure out why though.

however the fix you pointed out is not right. it means that by default it will be set to false, but the at call time it is passed as true as you can see here :

The Launchpad95 scripts are great, thanks for all the hard work thus far!

I have a bit of experience in making custom Ableton Python scripts for my MPK249 and MIDI Fighter Twister, and I recently decided to upgrade my launchpad mini to either a Pro or a RGB. I noticed a few bugs as you've stated on the Pro and would like to contribute.

Can I get a slack invite? Email is my username here + gmail.

Thanks

woah glad i took a look at this thread! was really enjoying Launchpad95 on my Launchpad Minis and just upgraded to a Launchpad Pro running Launchpad Pro95. Really appreciate the nice color scheme when using instruments in your scale mode- wayyy better than the pink/purple factory mode.

looking forward to the potential bug fixes and updates ahead!

I've run into a few bugs with LaunchPad Pro and would like to help with testing if that's helpful. Cheers and happy new year guys!

I can't hunt through everything and a search string is problematic:

Is there a way to trigger changes to what scale mode you are in? For example changing from C Major to C Dorian FROM Ableton?

Not sure if it works on LP, but Clyphx can change scale on push from Live

i dont think clyphx supports launchpad95. that said LP95 has this quick scale mode that allows you to switch scales even quicker :)

AH! He took my suggestion from way back. Awesome!
As great as that is, it wouldn't be quick enough to do Giant Steps.
As in, change key/mode every measure.

I have an annoying problem on Launchpad mini: In some modes, if I press some pads, other pads will start flashing. I can press them again tto make them turn off, its kinda like whack-a-mole... Does anyone know if I'm doing anything wrong? Should I file a github issue?

it looks like odd mapping or multi controller issue, you are sending some midi to the launchpad.

anyhow, it is most likely linked to your setup or live set.

Turns out I still had a midi feedback track to make my launchpad glow. Didn't know about this amazing thing. Thanks a lot for pointing me towards such a stupid mistake.

Hey mots. Just got a launchpad pro today and installed the launchpadpro95 script but for some reason I cannot find how to enter the melodic step sequencer. Can you please help me ? It works perfectly on my old launchpad with the other script.

From the manual:
To activate this mode, press user mode 2 button until it turns green.
This mode behave more how a hardware stepsequencer works. it uses the grid as a 7*8 matrix to edit note pitch, velocity, length and octave. one function per page. of course notes pitches follow the selected scale !

To be honest I did not my launchpad (pro or not) in a few months.
But I think that worked okay
