Is there a way to set latch mode for global link assignments?

Dear community,

I am looking for a way to set "latch" mode for global link assignments, similar to when setting up per-project links. I can't find this option in the "override generic link" window, thus I hope this can be done via code in the .flmapping file. Would appreciate any input and help!

Background:

Currently, I am trying to global link three switches of an equalizer plugin to three individual pads of a MIDI controller (Arturia BeatStep). Sadly, I don't get them to work as I'd wish to.

After setting the pads to "toggle" inside the hardware's MIDI Control Center, it will keep them pushed and lit, even when I unfocus the equalizer. This forces me to switch off the pads again, when going to another instance of the plugin. Setting the pads to "gate" forces me to keep them pushed to have the function active in the plugin, which is certainly not doing the job at all.

In conclusion, the perfect solution would be to press a hardware pad once (gate), but have it latch the equalizer plugin's switch.

This is an extraction of the global link file for the three functions. Does anybody know if and where I can add a certain command to achieve my wished behavior?

Code: Select all
