I don't think there is a pro version for the launchpad. :?

I think i will leave the CC control to a more appropriate midi device. :)

Automap would be better if i could change the pad colour then at least i could assign different colours to different functions for each page keepnig things seperate. Everything midi related is red.

Anyway, for now i'll use it for triggering things like the multisequencer until Andy develops that launchpad app he was talking about. :D :hihi:

I'm pretty sure you can upgrade to the Pro version for $35.00. I know I did it when I had the Nocturn and original Zero SL ... neither of which came with the Pro version.

I agree that the page structure could use some rework ... both for some type of easy navigation between pages and some type of color coding.

While AutoMap works across all Novation controllers, the utility varies with the controller. I think if I only had one it would probably be the Zero SL MKII, as this has the most useful hardware feature set ... but is not tied to a midi keyboard, giving you a lot of flexibility.

I found it well worth it.

Afaict, Automap 4 has replaced 3 and Pro http://www.novationmusic.com/products/software/automap/

Anyway i was using the user modes not automap (:dog:) I've automapped a few plugins and the lp works pretty good with drum synths like utonic, gotta see if it's possible to increase and decrease values smoothly though and then set up a template for Vortex But the hui will help to keep an overview of the controls.

Between Live, M4L/Runtime, vst plugins and the user modes the lp offers a lot of control for it's size. Great little controller. :)

Ahhh ... yeah! It makes a big difference when you are actually using Automap!
:love:

Probably explains why a lot of folks complain about it.

One of the things you need to learn to do

Keep diggin!'

One of the things you have to learn to really use Automap is to unlock the 'Min' 'Max' editing. (Settings> Unlock Max & Min Editing.)

Once you do this, you can get real control over the hardware. Since I don't have launch pad, I don't know how Novation defines the pads ... I assume they are velocity sensitive from 0-127 and have a 'latch' feature, so they will retain the last value reached; and, can be set as momentary or on/ off switches.

I don't know if they have a 'step' mode, but if they do, you can divide up the Min to Max parameters so that each push will take you one step up or down, depending how you set up the parameters.

If there is a 'step' mode, let me know and I'll try to explain it.
