Making different pages for Launchpad

I’d like to use the top buttons on my Launchpad to change pages, so that one button recalls my main MLR page, another recalls my sequencer, etc. I know it can be done in M4L, but I would like to do it just in MaxMSP. I think this can be accomplished with jit.cellblock, but I’m not sure where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Mike,

check the tutorials at and open the LP_7_MIDI_in_Jit_Matrix.maxpat file. This patch makes the Lauchpad change pages. Good place to start.

Have fun!

My god. I wish I had known about these tutorials before I spent hours and hours manually switching from matrixctrl to matrixctrl!

Thanks John for sharing your wisdom. I can’t wait to get home and try this. That’s what I love about this forum, Eplusmusic. Folks here have saved me hours, days, and weeks of time that I would have spent hacking something together the wrong way.

Check out this thread from a few days ago.

Using the patch on this page and the monome tutorial below is probably the easiest way, I reckon

Thanks johno, that’s very helpful.

I’m now trying to modify the LP_7 tutorial to fit my main patch. I’m having some trouble with that, as jit.matrix is pretty new to me. And the whole switching pages is more involved than I initially thought.

Posted is the modified patch, with my conceptual questions in red, and my proposed objects in orange.

What I want the pages to control and display are:

“session” Loopers
“user1″ Sequencer 1
“user2″ Sequencer 2
“mixer” Presets

Thanks again

You should also change the amounth of planes used by jit.matrix. It’s set to 2 now (it’s the number after the letters LP).

I’m also working on the same thing right now, also struggling with it.
