    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 D

      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...
