using 2 launchpads with ableton – can i link the 2 red "rectangles" ?

Hi people,

i didn’t find anything online about this…
I’m using 2 launchpads to control the session view in ableton live 9.
I’d like to be able to link the 2 red "rectangles", so they move the same way.

Looks like it’s not a native possibility, so i was wondering if there might be a M4L or max patch to do it…

if you have an idea

thank you

You can’t observe the redbox position but you can "get" the track_offset and scene_offset when the bank buttons are pressed (which are observable)…

You can then use these numbers with a bit of maths to move the second launchpads redbox… You’ll have some timing challenges but nothing insurmountable….

Cheers

Another way is a max standalone application which handles both launchpad inputs. Then you need 2 virtual midi cables from this application to live. But that might be only worth creating if you want to do some more magic. Build a m4l device. O.

thanks guys for your answers!

i’m really new to max programming, so i was wondering if an application like this might already exist…
