Maximum number of lights per beat

Post by HarryCameron » Fri Aug 03, 2018 8:35 pm

Hello,

My friend and I are trying to create a lightshow with a launchpad mini and Ableton Live 10 but we have a problem, we are trying to make a square that goes the whole way round the launchpad but it seems that there is a limit of 13 lights that can be lit per beat, is this true or are we doing something wrong? We are trying to create it through a MIDI Clip.

Thanks

Here are 2 screenshots showing my issue, this one shows that all the lights on the far outside of the launchpad should be lit when played: http://prntscr.com/kejxgi but as shown in this image: https://imgur.com/a/sW1slya only 13 light up

i use a Launchpad Mini as a controller for other software, and from a quick glance i don't think your MIDI notes are correct.

the top row of notes is 0–7, and the bottom row is 112–119. the rows increment in steps of 16...

Go to the launchpad-pro.com forum, this is a forum for Audio and Music Production so you'll not find answers here.

Cheers
