Trouble getting Roli Lightpad Block working

Post by analog_rome » Thu Jul 18, 2019 9:19 pm

Hi - hoping for help from a lightpad user... I connect my lightpad to PC with USB, and it mostly works (Ableton 10.1, Windows 10).

The Roli Dashboard app works. In Ableton the indicator lights show MIDI is being received; in preferences it shows up as expected as a control surface and as a general midi device; it works with Unfiltered Audio plugins (they are designed to work with it); and a max midi monitor effect shows the CC data is being received by a track.

The Dashboard Ableton mode works, but the problem is with the XYZ pad mode: MIDI learn in Ableton will not connect lightpad to a parameter. I have used dashboard settings to send one channel at a time, no luck.

I found a youtube video where someone shows XYZ working exactly as it should, but for me it's broken.

Thanks for any suggestions! I really want to make this work.

Have you tried the MPE_Util from juholt on Github?
