Launchpad Controller for Max (and Mira)

Download Links
Launchpad Controller 1.0

Control your Max patch with a Novation Launchpad. Customize button behavior and color schemes with a simple GUI interface (or by editing JSON). Contains “VirtualLaunchpad”, a Mira-compatible software equivalent of Launchpad.

launchpad_controller.js is a javascript which gives Launchpad buttons state (as a Max dict compatible object), and facilitates updating light colors by button press or programmatically as specified in the dictionary representations of each button. The controller reports state changes so that your Max patch can respond to them, and changes sent from your Max patch will update the Launchpad lights accordingly.

launchpad_controller_demo.maxpat : Gives you an idea of how to use launchpad_controller.js in your patch.
VirtualLaunchpad : a Mira-compatible software equivalent of Launchpad.
lp_proxy_button_setter.maxpat : Tool for easy customization of button color / behavior.

Note: Requires Max 6 or higher ( 6.1.3 to use with Mira ).

Out of the box you don’t need to know javascript to be able to use the object, but you would be able to extend the currently functionality more easily if you do.
