LED FEEDBACK IN SESSION BOX = LED BLINK DURING PLAYING

80 viewsGeneral

Hello everyone

I have a midi interface whose ledfeedback works in a basic way with single-color LEDs

Note ON = velocity 127 the LED lights up

Note OFF = velocity 0 the LED goes out

I configured a session box, the LED feedback works, the different functions that can be configured via the software

But what I would like to do is that when a clip in this box is playing that the corresponding LED starts flashing at the tempo for each clip currently playing

I understood that this was possible via reactions

How to do this ?

thank you in advance for your help

I don’t think it’s possible through CSS (I haven’t come across the feature) but I think it’s possible from within Ableton itself, although I have trouble finding a tutorial for it.

The gist of it is that you can send MIDI notes to your controller. Controller Buttons are linked to a certain Note, so “playing/activating” that Note should lighten up its corresponding button. You can then also use a Note’s Velocity to change LED color (if your Controller supports that).

I’ve seen a tutorial about it before, but I can’t seem to find it again.

yes I control the LEDs by midi with my interface
And so the LED feedback works

But what I would like is to have more advanced functionality in the script concerning the events during clip playback

My thought was you could set up a MIDI Track full of Clips that have the sole purpose of sending MIDI feedback in various patterns. Then, when another Clip is activated, you fire up the corresponding Feedback Clip along with it.

Some MIDI controllers do have blinking light patterns baked in, but you need to send MIDI messages to specific channels. The MIDI Fighter Twister has this functionality, for example. What controller are you using?
