Novation Launchpad Mapping

Postby zestoi » Mon May 21, 2012 9:56 am

top left arrow keys for track/library browsing
top right 'mixer' button toggles to the mixer page
bottom right is a shift button and above that a 2nd shift button

main grid

the main grid is split into two halves, one for each deck. each half is mapped the same

row 1: quantize, keylock, headphone cue, load
row 2: 2 flanger buttons and 2 gator buttons
row 3: loops 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8
row 4: loop in, loop out, loop exit/retrigger, deck reverse
row 5: hotcues 1-4
row 6: hotcues 5-8
row 7: cue, reset pitch, pitch down, pitch up
row 8: play, sync, pitchbend down, pitchbend up

shift + hotcue = delete hotcue
shift2 + hotcue = needle drop for quickly scanning through a track
shift + sync = adjust beatgrid

with the deck playing:

pitchbend = normal pitchbend
shift + pitchbend = pitchbend more

when the deck is not playing:

pitchbend = forward wind/rewind thru the track
shift + pitchbend = very fine fwd/rew to help align beatgrids

main grid (mixer mode)

the mixer page basically consists of 8 columns of virtual faders ala ableton live.

col 1-3: deck A low/mid/high virtual eq faders with eq kills at the top
col 4: volume deck A
col 5: volume deck B
col 6-8: deck B low/mid/high virtual eq faders with eq kills at the top

(make sure you're not running automap)

updates...

* enabled flashing colors
* use flashing red for eq kills
* play button flashes when the track is 90% the way thru
* using internal buffering in the launchpad so that led updates between pages appear instant
* shift/shift2 buttons (arm/solo) only now show up on the main page (page1)
* a new toggle shift on the mixer page (page2) on the "vol" button turns the central two volume 'faders' into vumeters

the code will support as many 'pages' with full led recall when switching between them. i only needed two for now, hence using the 'mixer' button as a toggle to change pages.

there's also plenty of other buttons unmapped at the moment that could be used.

I saw on DJTT that you are building mappings for MIXXX and came over right away hoping for this one :D

Can't wait to try it out. I'll let you know what I think ASAP.
Might play a little set with it this weekend if all goes well!

Quick question though... Would it be possible to nix the mixer page? I'm assuming yes, so... how?

Thanks zestoi!

I keep getting
Code: Select all
The MIDI script function 'NovationLaunchpad.incomingData' was not found in loaded scripts.

The MIDI message 0xB0 0x68 will not be bound.
(Click Show Details for hints.)


and the details say
Code: Select all
* Check to see that the function name is spelled correctly in the mapping file (.xml) and script file (.js)
* Check to see that the script file name (.js) is spelled correctly in the mapping file (.xml)

any ideas?

Edit-- It's for all of the midi messages, I don't think the note messages though

Update... Got this to work by updating to 1.11 A2
Great mapping overall, going to for sure try it out this weekend
The gater is kind of a joke though (but you already knew that zestoi)

Problem with the hotcues, but that's in mixxx (i think) track doesn't stop playing after you use a HC on the controller
Set one up at the end of the track for a quick workaround

yup - the gator isn't ideal. i did also try to have it move the volume fader up and down, but that went out of sync even faster.

any ideas for that button? i could just replace it with a different flanger or spinback/brake at a different rate?

i think there's two "gator" buttons in the mapping on the forum? there's only one in the latest mapping that should be in 1.11.

the latest mapping has two flanger buttons, spinback and brake on row two, and the gator button to the right of loop in/out/reloop

i could just make it another instant loop button or something? any other ideas? a "loop move" button may make sense there - and could change what it does when shift is held down? don't think i'd want shifted options on the loop in/out/reloop buttons but could do?

Zestol,

I'm new at this. Where does the xml file and the js script file go? I'm on a Mac OSX, 10.7.4.

I know fairly well how to go into libraries, etc. I found a Midi library folder with other xml files, but not sure if this is the right place for the Novation Launchpad mapping. Also, I don't have a clue as to where the js script file goes.

Thanks,

Paul Overman
