I would like to map several serato functions such as looping and fx to my novation launchpad.

I was able to assign the controls to the pads via the midi assign function in Serato but the pads do not light up when i press them.

This is very annoying as i can never tell if a function is on or off.

Any idea about what i should do to make them light?

Should the automap server be running while i map them?

Any instructions on how to do that?

Thank you!

Manually mapping a MIDI device does not allow for the MIDI Lights to turn on or off with the device.

Unfortunately, as of now there is no way to change this in ScratchLIVE.

Hello Ceasar,

Since the Launchpad isn't a natively supported device the lights on it will not coincide with with lights in the software. Unfortunately this is just how it is with any midi controller that that doesn't have native support:(
