Default Launchpad Pro - Control Surface Library

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

let me introduce Control Surface Driver for REAPER.

It mimics behavior similar to Ableton Live to allow using it as control surface.

Please take some time and read through short manual. Most important things from it are:

- Device mode displays TCPFX parameters and requires only one track to be selected
- Shift + Sends enters Sends Pan mode

Have fun!

Administrator , could this be moved to the forum section MIDI Hardware, Control Surfaces, and OSC ?


I'd hate for this to go under the rader.

cool, posting here to find it later

i've been using LPP with stock firmware for years, using a complex bidule re-mapper with loopbe30 in between LPP and REAPER for years

i've been wanting to get into writing my own custom firmware for it to simplify my at times poorly constructed bidule map.

are you doing anything with LED feedback with this device?

in my system, which doesn't use the original lpp layout/functionality at all (even as a reference), midi tracks that are recorded/played back from REAPER appear in time as LED lights corresponding to track color.

this makes for a really nice screenless, controller-based overview of your loop -- drums light up, chords light up, etc - all on time and to the beat. it's a great way to visualize harmonies and "hear" with your eyes.

Can anyone explain, or point me to a dummies' guide on how to install something like this?

I went down to "Build Instructions" and I see it has something to do with PHP, WDL, compiling...this is all Greek to me.

many thanks!

Sure!

1 - download the archive from Stash and unzip it
2 - In Reaper, click Options -> [b]Show REAPER resource path in explorer/finder...
3 - In folder that opens, go to folder *UserPlugins* and copy there reaper_csurf_launchpadpro_1.0.0.dylib (in case of Mac) or reaper_csurf_launchpadpro.1.0.0.dll (in case of Windows)
4 - restart REAPER
5 - follow instructions in attached documentation, section Setup

It seems that my manual is missing the most crucial instruction of where to copy the file. Will update it with next version.

Hey mccrabney, I have somehow missed your responses to this thread.

I wanted to write one as well, however it got under other things in my TODO list. But it is really cool that they open-sourced the firmware. It gives it life beyond support (although Novation very good job wiht product support, for example firmware updates for Bass Station II are really awesome).

Not yet. I had some ideas about what to do with button matrix, but was not exactly sure which is the correct way to go. I still have some, but the Launchpad does not get enough of my attention right now. But, I'd like to do at least one update with some cool features in the future.

Lately, I have been busy writing REAPER integration with Yamaha MOXF which (IMHO) turned out to work really well.
