So is it normal that the first row is not affected by the control device options (doesn't stay focused) or did I miss a setting?
You need to pin the track as well.

Currently not.

So when working with clips in a project, it's easy to start remembering which is which by the color we assign to it. And we can use familiar colors for certain instruments.

All this is lost when a scene plays. One has now to count them, which one is the Zebra2 synth ? Is it the fourth row, or the fifth - it's certainly not the color I gave it anymore !

Would it be possible to only blink a pad when a clip is playing, and keep the color it was assigned ?
Currently not. Do not fully get the issue since you are still seeing the colors of all other non-playing scenes.

Simply use the play button. But you can also assign a different button for switching modes in the settings.
Ah thanks, found it. I have temp assigned it to Quantize which I virtually never use but my preference would be the Metronome button as I always have that disabled in my projects as I find it a distraction. Would it be possible to add that to the list please?
Noted.

Hi Moss. I pinned both drum machine track and device in control device options, but the first row doesn't "lock" to the track.

Thank you for your clarifying answer and your work in general

Thanks!

It's not always a 'full pack' of sessions that are in a project, at least when it starts :

I guess I could create empty clips in column session 7 or so to only act as placeholders for the colours.

Here's a photo in Mixing mode. The light blue pads are actually white, although they turned out light blue on the photo.
You mean to have the white pads in black instead?
The unused pads not having any light at all.

Do you think it's possible ? So that the mix screen does not jump at one's face with all the unused pads lit in white ?

Ah, I see. Means that the clip would need to be pinned as well but not sure if this will fix it. Need to look into it when I find some time.

Hi,
Could I ask you if your driver takes on account, that only X-Touch Extender is connected to Bitwig ? I tried all choices but not found how to configure correctly.

Thank you very much
Petr

It would be much appreciated if you can fix this, together with the note edit bug. Thanks for taking the time to look into it!

That only works if the extender device "speaks" the normal MCU protocol (since this is used by the "Main" device) and not the Mackie Extender protocol.

Hey, I have a feauture request. I actually altered your code myself to have the controllers act on the device in focus in stead of "first instrument" on the track for example. But I couldn't find how to get this working for drum tracks. Would it be a big hastle to implement this? That way when we use instrument selectors for live usage and put the focus on the selected instrument your scripts would work on all of them. Would be an awesome improvement for live usage.

Hello monsieur Mossgraber,

I recently added a Launch Control XL and I really like it.

I have one suggestion/question tho.

Maybe this already has been suggested but would it be possible to exchange the panning option in the note sequence mode (not the drum) for note lenghts ? I think being able to change the note length in the note sequencer could be more powerfull than the option to pan..

Since your fix, the meters on my Yamaha DM3 have worked perfectly. But, automation doesn't.
When I use the "Others" DAW Remote mode and select one of the automation modes (Read/Touch/Latch/Write/Trim/Off) nothing happens.

However, when I use the "Steinberg" DAW Remote mode, Read/Write works properly but mute automation does not.
I can write mute automation as the track plays, but the track will always start muted even if I write a mute later in the track. (This does not happen with PreSonus Studio One 6.6.0.99237, but it does also happen when I use Bome's MIDI Translator to translate HUI to MCU protocol and use Bitwig's native Mackie Control script.)

Attached are two MIDI Monitor files of the automation buttons in Other and Steinberg mode.
