motorized faders

hello

Can somebody please help me with a comprehensive guide on how to get motorized faders working properly? I’ve got the icon platform M.

Searching for motorized faders on this forum gives me a few results, all with pretty vague suggestions. Here is one from John.

“Sending LED feedback / midi velocity to the controls should activate the motorized faders. This can be done using the standards midi mapping types in CSS.”

Ok. So within the track selector, I have a ‘volume’ mapping. There is an ‘LED Feedback’ setting. I’ve set this to ‘custom’ and ‘send feedback’ to ‘yes’.

Now as far as “sending midi velocity to the controls”, I have no idea how to do that. I am assuming this is suggesting to use reactions, which seem to go a bit over my head. What does ‘to the controls’ mean? To the fader? What ‘midi velocity’? That doesn’t appear to be an option anywhere in the reactions section.

^ The timestamp at this video is the closest thing I can find to ‘sending midi velocity to the controls’, but this doesn’t seem to work for me.

Thanks 🙂

BCF2000 faders are no problem, click, clack and play, I have also an faderport 8, I cant’ get the faders to work.

I’d love to hear about a solution too, since I can’t get mine working either.

I would love to hear if somebody managed to implement the use of Platform M or Faderport motor faders ?

@Jonxfm

I will put a little time into a CSS script for the Motor faders ASAP.. (I think I was WebApp last time) Maybe I haven’t used it in Live 11? I had -as usual – something super complicated, but I’ll just try faders and knobs for the first 8 tracks so I can verify that it’s pretty simple. I still think it should be.

Fair enough? (Watch this space . . .)

Hi John, thanks for the reply.

I’ve reduced the script to just a session box and 2 track selectors with volume controls for this. As for ableton, I have all midi controller settings empty besides the CSS script, no custom set MIDI mappings, no other midi controllers plugged in. For what it’s worth, I’m not using a Motor 61, I’m using a Platform M+. I’ve attached the .json file for my script exported through CSS here, in case that helps.
