Making different pages for Launchpad


    Mar 18 2012 | 6:33 am
    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 http://www.novationmusic.com/support/max_tutorials_for_launchpad/ and open the LP_7_MIDI_in_Jit_Matrix.maxpat file. This patch makes the Lauchpad change pages. Good place to start.
      Have fun!
      john.

      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.
      john.
