AZ Controller Preset for Novation LaunchControl XL

Recommended Posts

Hi:)

Somebody asked me to make a AZ Controller Preset for the Novation LaunchControl, so here it is, the very first try!

First of all download and install AZController and send his wife some flowers please!

1. Download

http://www.azslow.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=28

2. Flowers for his wife

http://www.azslow.com/index.php/topic,107.0.html

 

Link to the Files (also attached):

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Al2mKojzOW0MnLZb_DeHGFm9HFma8Q?e=n8fBPH

1. LC_StandAlone_Preset_1.syx for to send to the 1. UserPreset on the LC

2. LaunchControl_1.0 Preset for the AZController. Import in the Pluginmanager.

 

I have not used the written Buttons:

1. Send Select Up is to switch between Track and Bus Modus

2. Track Select Left and Right are to switch the Bank to the left and right.

3. Sliders 1-8 are Volume 1-8

4. Rotors 1-8 are Pan 1-8

5. Rotors 9-16 are Send 1 (1-8)

6. Rotor 17 is Master Volume (First Bus)

7. Rotor 18 is Value +/- (for example to rapidly change values in the event Inspector)

8. Rotor 19 is nothing yet

9. Rotor 20 is Track Select, but cause there are no Endless Rotors, Values 0-63 selects next Track, Values 64-127 selects previous track.

     (BCR2000) is much better with that finer resolution, but perhaps I can find out how to do it better with the LC.

10. Rotor 21 is Zoom Vertically In/Out

11. Rotor 22 is Zoom Horizontally In/Out

12. Rotor 23 is Jog, but Values 0-63 Jog to the right, 64-127 to the left.

13. Rotor 24 is Bar Next/Previous, but Values 0-63 is next bar, Values 64-127 is previous bar.

14. Buttons 1-8 are Solo Track 1-8 

15. Buttons 9-16 are Mute Track 1-8

16. Buttons Device, Mute, Solo and Record Arm are for switching the first 4 User Presets (not activated yet)

 

I have the BCR2000 with a lot of function and the LaunchControl just as an addition for ACT Controls (Presets 1-4),

but I hope - for people who only have the launch control - it will help.

For we have 3 more presets, I can add a lot of functions, perhaps for ACT, more sends, ProChannel a.s.o. (when I have time)

HI:)

 

Updated the first Preset to 1.1 :


1. Send Select Up is now a "Ctrl" Key 

2. Send Select Down is now a "Shift" Key 

3. Pressing the Shift Key and immediately the Ctrl Key switches between Bus or Track Focus

4. Pressing the Ctrl Key and immediately the Shift Key opens or closes the Multidock

5. Holding the Shift Key and then Pressing the Ctrl Key switches Multidock Tabs to the Left

6. Holding the Ctrl Key and then Pressing the Shift Key switches Multidock Tabs to the Right

7. Pressing the Shift Key twice activates "Shift_Lock" 
   (If the Track Select Right Button blinks, just press Shift again to unlock it).
   
8. Pressing Solo Buttons for more than 2 seconds is selecting track 1-8(Bank 1)

9. Pressing Shift and then immediately a Solo Button activates Automation Write on Track 1-8(Bank 1)

10. Pressing Shift and then use Pan is Send 2 on Track 1-8(Bank 1)

11. Pressing Shift and then use Send 1 is Send 1 Pan on Track 1-8(Bank 1)

12. Rotor 17 is Bus 1 (Master) Volume, with Shift it is Bus 2 Volume

13. With Shift, Shift_Lock, Sliders 1,3,5,7 are Send 1-4 of selected Track
    Slider 2,4,6,8 are Send Pan 1-4 of selected Track

 

So press Solo more than 2 seconds to select a track, then Shift(Send Select down) or shift twice.

Now Sliders 1-8 change Send 1-4  and Send 1-4 Pan.

 

I Think this is better than to Shift it on Pan and Send 1, so we have Rotors 9-16 free for other things, but first try it out...

So maybe I change Point 10 and 11, Rotors free for other things in the next version....

I have Master Bus always on 0 dB and a Mixbus before with a Send for Monitoring, with Rotor 17 I use the Send1 on the Mixbus and with Shift the Mixbus Volume.

Updated to Version 1.2

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Al2mKojzOW0MnLZb_DeHGFm9HFma8Q?e=giHM28

1. Shift or Shift_Lock (SendSelectUp) + Mute 1-8 is now Record Arm 1-8 (Bank 1.....)

So we have now for Solo Buttons:

Solo, Automation Write enable, Select Track

For Mute Buttons:

Mute and Record Arm for Selected Track

More to come....

==================== Version 1.3 ====================

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Al2mKojzOW0MnLZb_DeHGFm9HFma8Q?e=giHM28

1. We now have 2 Presets:
    Preset 1_v3
    Preset 2_v3
    Upload them to the Launch Control
    
2. To switch between them use Device and Mute Button, 
    In Cakewalk in the settings-Midi-Play/Rec-SysX Forwarding must be enabled to LaunchControl

3. Fixed Record Arm Track 1 was always Track 1 and not Track 9 for example for Bank 2

     I'm trying to let the button turn to red if Record is armed. Don't know yet howto....

More functions to come with Preset 2, next is to change all ProChannel Parameters (Standard)

HI:)

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Al2mKojzOW0MnLZb_DeHGFm9HFma8Q?e=4DJ9ae

==================== Version 1.6 ====================

1. 4 Presets now (1-4) on Launch Control

2. Upload StandAlone Presets 1-4 to LaunchControl XL 1-4

3. Device (1), Mute (2), Solo (3) and RecordArm (4) are switching the 4 presets.

4. Now the presets have a light, so you can see which preset you are on.

5. Preset 3 and 4 have no controls yet, more to come.....

6. Import LaunchControl_1.6 to the AZController

================================================

So what to do with the 2 new presets? ACT? 24Channel Mode (24 tracks volume and Pan)? A few switches to start, stop, edit commands, midi record?

 

Greetz,

Bassman.

Thanks so much, Bassman. I think that your presets are now better than the ones set up for Ableton Live, in terms of functionality. (and the lights work, which is a great help too.) :-)

Really great stuff for sharing this with the Cakewalk community.
