Hi, I want to make my Launchpad Pro as game controller like the above YT video.
When I open Bomes MIDI translator only, keystroke functions works fine.
but if I open Ableton Live for light effect, MIDI Translator stops working.

I can see above YT video it says, “same Input both Ableton and MIDI Translator”
I select Launchpad Pro 2 as the input in MIDI Translator but, I can’t find same inputs on Ableton Live.
How can I solve this problem?

Hi,

My guess is he did this on a Mac which allows assignment of same MIDI port to multiple applications. On Windows platform, only 1 application can access a given port at a time, so you will need to  route your Launchpad to a virtual MIDI port (IE BMT 1) in Ableton live so that it can read the MIDI signal from Ableton Live.

See attached diagram.

SJC> In MT Pro, once you open your ports , draw a line between the inputs and outputs in the MIDI router

I don’t know I did right, sorry I am bad english. I draw the lines like above your picture. and in the Ableton, MIDI From : Launchpad Pro Input Ch.6, MIDI To : Bome MIDI Translator 1 Ch.1, MT Pro Log get the Midi signals but keystroke doesn’t work. And if I choose MIDI From : Bome MIDI Translator 1, it doesn’t catch any signals.

Hi, If you need more than simple MIDI routing (IE changine CH 6 to CH 1, then you need translators for that instead of just a simple line through as I showed.  The simple line method is just for routing MIDI but not translating one MIDI message to another.

Hi,

It is pretty straightforward to create translators to translate from one channel to another

 

------
Translator : Note on CH 1 to 6
Incoming: Note-On MIDI Channel 1 any note set to pp any velocity set to qq
-------

-------
Outgoing: Note-On MIDI Channel 6 note pp velocity qq
Options: Swallow
------

 

Then do the same for note-off. Make sure you have selected the proper input and output ports.
