Launchpad live.grid control

December 5, 2009 | 11:02 am

hey.. i watched the tuts on max4live.info and build the "basic" control patch for my launchpad..
but now iam stuck..
i cant figure out how to control a matrix with it properly…
i used the live.grid in matrix mode but

momentary control of the matrix is inversed… when i press a pad the the according matrix position gets turn off.. when i release the pad the point in the matrix is turned on again

another thing would be a toggle mode… i have no idea how to set it up

it would be awesome if someone could take a look at this patch..
(first umenu select "launchpad", second umenu select "button_matrix" and be sure that you are in USER2 mode)
thanks a lot

There are a couple of things that look a little off… Your matrix is coming off of the button_matrix and not the main mode. You should have some triggers that send a bang and a list down to a observer for getting the button matrix and the to a live.object for sending values to the button matrix. The best way to see what it should look like is to take a look at the NomPad and see how it works.

You have to be a user on my site to see the file, but i think you will gain a lot of knowledge by looking at it. Feel free to ask any questions here or on my site.
