I tried it on another machine - the same. I unplugged other controllers (Launchpad and Roland A-49) and tried to run beatstep and your script only - no change. I tried different step sequencer resolutions and bpm ... it happens always and the traces seems to come completely randomly.

My launchpad script has also a step sequencer included ... this kind ofrunning led works flawless on the launchpad, but it's of course a completely different script code.


Sorry, no idea. I tested again and cannot reproduce the problem.

Ok ... I analysed the code a bit and watched the button color changes via println (in Grid.js -> Grid.prototype.lightEx). Everything is fine there.

So I think it's my Beatstep hardware (firmware?). It seems that sysex messages will be randomly ignored or get lost. so I tried to send the sysex messages for pad color 0 twice (in Grid.js -> Grid.prototype.setPadColor). this works! No more traces ... :)

BTW:

I also "hacked" the DrumView.js to get a sound while adding steps. Works so far ... but unfortunatly this plays the sounds also while removing a step.

Code: Select all
DrumView.prototype.updateNoteMapping = function ()
{
      var note = ( this.offsetY-36 ) + this.selectedPad;
      Scales.PIANO_MATRIX =
      [
          note,  note,  note,  note,  note,  note,  note,  note,
          note,  note,  note,  note,  note,  note,  note,  note,
          -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1,
          -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1,
          -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1,
          -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1,
          -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1,
          -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1, -1
      ];
      this.noteMap = this.model.canSelectedTrackHoldNotes () && this.isPlayMode ? this.scales.getDrumMatrix () : this.scales.getPianoMatrix ();

    this.surface.setKeyTranslationTable (this.noteMap);
};

Time for a last 1.3.x release before we jump into Bitwig 2 fun:

  • Fixed: Some issues with discrete parameter changes.

As usual get it from my homepage: http://mossgrabers.de/Software/Bitwig/Bitwig.html

WARNING:
I just pushed the latest code to GitHub which now supports the new v2 API.
https://github.com/git-moss/Beatstep4Bitwig

This version is NOT compatible with 1.3.x! If you are on the Beta list feel free to give it a try.

There are still some regressions in the API, which are documented here: https://github.com/teotigraphix/Framewo ... regression

So please look there first before reporting bugs.

The clock is no longer started by the script in v2! You need to enable it in Settings -> Synchronisation.

Hi Moss

the clock is enabled in the settings on both bsp and bs

Hi Moss

Now I defiantly have the correct script

but I am getting a strange problem

if I make a new project in BwS 2 b4
and click play, the bsp doesn't seem to be receiving a clock signal
I can twiddle the knobs and play sounds via the pads
but the sequencer doesn't start .

but if I shut down the audio engine and restart it, then everything works as normal

cheers

No idea, works fine for me. Maybe you should report it on the Beta list.

Just wanted to let you know that I am currently rewriting the framework for all my scripts. Therefore, there will be no updates or bigfixes. However, I noted all of your comments.
Cheers!

HI

I am using an arturia minv
and want to midi learn some of the knobs with my bsp
but when I try this nothing happens

1. select midi learn on the mini v
2. click one of the knobs, and it says learning
3. put bsp in control mode
4. twiddle a knob on the bsp
5. nothing happens

do the same again only this time use my bs 1
and it all works

what am I doing wrong on the bsp?

cheers
