Actually that doesn’t work I tried it, at least in the larger full on hub which has other gui elements. Also that’s a bad workaround as I wish for the device not to disable other APC40 Features when it’s disengaged / off. Much like the CS Step patch, when the device is engaged a section of the controller should be taken over and it’s functionality in Live turned off, then returned when the device is disengaged.

I put the full patch in this upload so the ultimate effect of the Blue Hand can be seen. If the Blue Hand locks to this device it even messes it up itself. One knob will turn other knobs etc. They need to be stored and automated so i can’t hide the gui from Live.

I really just want to make it look like an APC40 or 20 parameter/button has been MIDI mapped and have it behave like that, totally disengaged from the control surface features.

I don’t expect anyone to dig through this huge patch, but I’m sure someone has dealt with this and am including for reference.

thx all
