Hey, I am just wondering if it's possible to use the Novation Launchpad in serato to trigger cue points, load tracks, and stuff like that.
I'm aware of the bridge, I use it, but thats simply to launch live from serato.
Help!

Thanks! :)

Hey Konix,
how do i do that? I cannot simply use the midi learn option in serato it seems....
I'm not quite sure how to midi map as well if that's what needs to be done.

Could you help me out?

Hey, this is great, thanks Shaun.

Although it still doesn't solve my problem with my launch pad.

I am trying to use my launchpad to work with Bridge, which works fine. but also i want it to be able to trigger cue points, for example, or load deck functions, etc... in a user 2 mode for example...

Are you mapping the controller to The Bridge within Scratch Live or Ableton?

If mapping the controller within Ableton, the Launch Pad may not like communicating with two applications simultaneously.

Try MIDI mapping the bridge stuff within Scratch Live and test if it allows cue point and other SSL features to properly map.

Any luck Jon?

My Bridge within SERATO works fine.
When I try to midi assign my launchpad to "non-bridge" functions such as cue points for example, or load deck fuctions, it does not work.

I'm going to try to use the midi assign within ableton and see if that works.

I'll keep you posted. Thank you for your concern.

Jon

I think if you not using the bridge, the launchpad requires the automap server software from novation. not sure if this helps but just putting it out there :-)
