1. To use multiple Launchpads use multiple instances of MIDI Out set to different MIDI ports (make sure IN/OUT ports match for each Launchpad). 115 is the default if you want to share projects with others.
2. The new system uses the normal Launchpad setup, so you don't need to change anything if you have a properly working Launchpad setup with feedback.
Notes map to buttons causing them to light up according to the following rules:
Piano roll to Launchpad mapping
Each octave starting from C0, is a Launchpad row, added from the bottom-up
Velocity maps to color
Linear mapping to color.
MIDI note G10/127 sets 3 different animation modes depending on the velocity:
Velocity 0 = Mode 1: Animation off
< 0% Velocity <30% = Mode 2: Animation blended with the clips
< 30% = Mode 3: Animation only
MIDI note F#10/126 sets "temporary animation only":
While the note is held the clip launch buttons are turned off. This allows you to display clips to trigger but temporarily turn these off while the animation displays. Unlike the note G10/127 which sets the mode once for all notes, this is safe to use per pattern.
This project provides an example for two launchpads, one on port 114, the other 115.
The first three clips on the 1st row one are the three animation control states
The second row are demo patterns showing off the features
