ICON QCON PRO / EX controller LCD problem fixed (Live 8/9)

Post by sanghalung » Fri Mar 29, 2013 10:03 am

To fix problems for your Live 9 (and Live 8 ) platform having iCon QCon controllers you may want to approach a different method. A while ago I wrote a programmable midi processor to fix talking between Goldie-oldie synths and custom made light-installations. It's called midiTRX. I made a quick TRX script to address several problems that arise when you use your iCon QCon PRO/EX controllers in Live 8 or 9. The demo version of TRX is available for free for those Live'ies dying to get their controllers to work. And why not, you paid big bucks for it right?

MidiTRX is a program that connects on one side to a set of virtual midi cables and on the other side to your iCON QCon PRO controller. The TRX script in this demo filters specific (and faulty) midi messages out of the midi stream and transforms them before relaying it to the DAW (Ableton Live) or controller.

In the case of Ableton Live 8 or 9 it will drive your LCD screen of any numbers of extenders making it possible to read Ableton Live track information on your extenders using the factory standard Mackie remote scripts. Besides the fixing of the LCD screens, the TRX script will fix numerous other glitches you may encounter during controller operation. This allows you to operate Ableton Live 8 or Live 9 with your iCon QCon PRO controller on a casual manner.

MidiTRX is not designed for Ableton Live nor the iCon QCon PRO and EX controllers. It was designed to use as a programmable midi processor in our studio to create on the fly solutions where devices needed to be driven by midi but did not behave as musical instruments or didn’t support the 1983 midi standard (Older synths built prior the standardization of the midi protocol, Custom light installations, Self-built controllers and the like).

I have a demo release candidate of TRX for you including a full working solution (no nag-screen-and-stops-sudden-crap-ware stuff) for Windows 7 / Ableton Live / iCON QCon Pro/Ex. It may work on other platforms too but I only did test it on Win 7 with good results.

Download the solution from my Google drive:
