Controlling controller LEDs with Live

Post by h2jazz » Wed Jan 30, 2019 7:09 am

I have two MDI Controllers: McMillan 12Step and iCon G-Board. I use them on my pedalboard for switching live instruments and effects on/off. The controller lights just flash, but I want to reflect them the on/off state.
I checked the user forums of both manufacturers with no success.

Do you mean they flash when they're pressed and don't give feedback??

Have you seen ClyphX Pro and the Bindings add on?

Thank you so much S4racen, but that seems a bit overkill. I. just want the leds of my controllers to stay on, when the instrument is switched on and getting off, when I switch the instrument off. Is there not an easy way for that?

I accomplished it for the MacMillen 12 Step with the M4L device from this forum:

Now I'd like to modify this device for my iCon G-Board. Does anybody know, how that works? I have no clue about Max, but I'm willing to learn.
