@Bocephus, @truth, @microbyte thanks to all

If i have 3 launch pads and i want to assign each one to a 1 page of PB buttons whats the way?
I create 3 devices and assign different device space 0, 1, 2, assign each button to a each page.
when i press button 1 launchpad 1, activate buttons 1 launchpads 1 and 3, then when i press 1 to off (toggle mode) turn off Pb 1 launchpad 1 and 3, but turn on Pb 1 in launchpad 2.

@chieffcrew

here is my suuuuuuper long work around
Step 1 - download novation automap 4.8
http://global.novationmusic.com/support/product-downloads?product=Launchpad+MK1
Step 2 - Install then launch (make sure launchpad is unplugged)
Step 3 - plugin launchpad (you should see a notification on right side pop up)
Step 4 - in Automap > Preferences > Focus Device > Launchpad
Step 5 - in Automap > Software Setup > Advanced > Midi Ports > Set both to Automap MIDI
Step 6 - in Automap > Software Setup > Advanced > Midi Channels > here chose how many channels you want (each channel will be a page in M-PC)
Step 7 - in Automap > Software Setup > Advanced > check where it says "Enable HUI"
Step 8 - on your launchpad HOLD USER2 and PRESS DOWN button (the buttons should turn red)
Step 9 - on your launchpad PRESS DOWN button (this should bring up your Edit Mapping window)
Step 10 - on your launchpad PRESS USER2 button (this will take you to the channel page select screen)
Step 11 - now you have to put a full page of CC#s on each channel page (make sure if there is something there already to save it) after making a full sheet hit "Set as default" and do that for every channel page - here is my file i made
http://www106.zippyshare.com/v/2OsAAOVp/file.html
Step 12 - in MPCTools > MIDI > make New Device > Input and Output = Automap Midi (make sure you dont have another device using the launchpad midi ins / outs)
Step 13 - Do the usual button detect and function assign (each channel page on the launchpad will have different CC msges)
Step 14 - oooooohhhhhh god sooooooo much mapping :P
Ive mapped 3 pages so far (trying to reach 10)

........ dahm that was long
hope i didnt miss anything ;)

I have a problem though maybe @microbyte can help with

I've been having a weird problem ever since i switched to the new M-PC 3.5
I have midi mapped a page of playback buttons
Everything works until i delete a cue on a playback slot then put a new one in its place
I hit the button that its mapped to but the new cue does not launch ... the old deleted one does
only thing that fixes it is relaunching mpctools but this only fixes it for everything prior relaunch of mpctools

does this make sense? and can i fix this?

Hello @69DECIBEL69
I have to take some time to make MPCTools fully compatible with the new M-PC release. Right now it is compatible with the previous release 604.
Hopefully that will be fixed when I update MPCTools for MPC 3.50

c4rl0s,

The Submaster section doesn't provide feedback to MPCTools.
Please use MainPlaybackFader for this. Assign a different deviceSpace and you will be able to control a different bank than the one being displayed in M-PC. You can even duplicate the references from your Submaster section to a main playback bank so you have them visible on screen. But in MPCTools assign the faders to the main playback faders, not the submaster.

I have an APC 20. I'm having trouble with the Midi feedback scripting. I've researched so much on the protocol but I still can't seem to understand the messages I'm supposed to input for each button...

Initialization:
ON:
OFF:

I would like the color to stay lit all the time until pressed to show it's operation. Then I would like it to blink when pressed. Could someone please help me understand the messages better and how to write them?

@LiteBrite,

As of today, no feedback is available during press.
What you probably want is to send a MIDI message on Initialisation (this is upon connection with MIDI device) to lit the LED of the button and leave it like that.

ON/OFF are respective to ON/OFF feedback that comes from M-PC which might not always be available.

The message to send really depends on the controller and I can't help you much with that, since I don't have an APC20.

Best regards,
Ricardo Dias

This is why there should be a controller editor for everything, like Native Instrument has. I love that editor lol

Yeah that sounds great. I would love any kind of mapping for this controller. I started to program it only to find out the buttons aren't triggering playback buttons like I have programmed. I've been searching all over and can't find what is wrong with this APC 20. SO anything will help.

@djzurdo
If you are willing, I could include your profile in next versions of MPCTools for other APC20 users. Would this be ok?

Of course, no problem, Maybe it's better my profile for APC40, because the use together.
In the APC20, I have the keys of the keypad buttons and 10 .lua files while on the APC40 as I have playbackbuttons.
Send you in private message ;)

Anyway, is very fast change assignament of buttons.

Hi again.

When I set to a fader control a MainPlaybackFader, it works fine, but with the SubmasterFader doesn't work at all.

Any suggestion ?

Chief sorry for my late reply, I use 2 apc minis. THe launch pad mini has a set up mode that lets you set a device (1-16) on the LPM itself. THis should be your midi channel 1-16. With the apc mini's I use midiox. I mapped device 1(the first device you plug in) in midi ox to see channel 0 and output channel 16. It's been a while and it's not in front of me now but it was something like:options>data mapping>patch mapping. IT was accomplished using those functions. Just play around with it. I'm not sure if you can use 3 like this because I only have 2.
Then I plug in the other apc and start mpctools. the first one was grabbed by midiox and outputs 16 while apc2 outputs 0.
