I'm trying to set a specific pad of my Novation Launchkey to lit by sending it a Midi message in Ableton Live, like described in the Programmer's reference on page 6-7:
To light the bottom left drum-pad the following message would be sent Example LED on message:
MIDI Channel 16, C1, Colour/Velocity (1-127)
9Fh, 24h, Colour/Velocity (01h - 7Fh)
(159, 36, Colour/Velocity (1- 127))
I've never used Live to send CC messges and I have no idea, why it isn't working. So I have set up a midi track that goes out to Lauchkey and channel 16, like it is supposed to, and there I trigger a clip with the Midi data.
Here's an image of that:
The Midi setup of the controller is correct, i.e. I can use it with the designated Novation mapping called "inControl" as well as a basic controller without specific DAW mapping (you can switch between the modes for different controll groups).
Any ideas about what I'm doing wrong? Am I missing something?
Turns out my Keyboard is MK1, not MK2 (ups!), therefore i'm going to try my best editing the remote script, instead.
