Launchpad lights incorrectly...

Post by robbmasters » Fri Jan 08, 2010 11:07 am

I've been getting some strange behaviour with the lights from the Launchpad (in Live 8.1.1 in XP).

Sometimes, if I go to a Sends "page" and set all Send A values to maximum, I get the following...

[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][]
[][][]
[][][][][]
[][][]
[][][][][]
[][][]
[][][][][][][][]



Note the 3 white (off) lights.

And sometimes, if set all Send A values to minimum, I get the following...

[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]
[][][][][][][][]

Note the 3 red (on) lights.

The column seems random, whereas the rows are always the same.

If I exit the page and then return, then the lights are correctly lit.

Is there some logical explanation that I'm missing?

I have disabled all other MIDI devices (and Bome's) just to check that they weren't interfering.

Hmm, getting even more MIDI weirdness with the Launchpad...

With the Launchpad in User mode, random pads are sometimes lit - even though I haven't done any learning (nor routed MIDI back to the Launchpad, as shown in the "LED feedback" video at http://www.novationmusic.com/answerbase ... php?id=545).

Am I missing something? Or is this a bit buggy?

I am having similar issues. Random lights on the LP. I notice that sometimes when I go back to session view from say, user 1 or 2 none of my clips are lit. I have to push mixer then go to session to see clips.
Anyways my main concern is this : I am trying to use both the LP and the X Session Pro. But when I assighn things to the X Session and move said controls the Lp lights up too. Just random buttons.
I'm thinking its just CC's clashing but I'm not sure. Any suggestions?

Sounds like it could be clashing CCs (or more likely MIDI notes). But I know that's not my problem as I disabled any other devices to double check.

Also my random lights don't seem to be caused by anything specific...
