Novation Launchkey Mini Assistant
Description and Instructions
This has not been tested in live environment, but it does work for my setup (I have a mixtrack Pro 3 as main controller, hooked to Traktor 3). It is more an addition to the controller rather than a standalone player.
What it can do so far, according to Midi Channel:
CH1: FX Knobs (1-4 FX 1, 5-8 FX2); side buttons select effect
CH2: Xone 96 EQ for A & B (1-4 => low to high A; 5-8 => low to high B)
CH3: Xone 96 EQ for C&D (1-4 => low to high C; 5-8 => low to high D)
CH4: Tempo range adjust for ABCD (1,3,5,7) and Tempo Slider (2,4,6,8)
CH5: Gain adjustment for ABCD (1,3,5,7) and FX adjustment (Filter, Noise etc) for ABCD (2,4,6,8)
CH6: Waveform Adjustment (e.g from Small layout to advanced etc) as it follows: 1 is A, 2 is B, 3 is C, 4 is D. For now I have mapped the rest of knobs (5,6,7,8) to seek position (browse through song)
Side buttons (Track, Triangle, Scene) as per Midi Channel:
CH1: Track is an FX1 selector (dec, inc), Scene is for FX2
CH4: Toggle Keylock on: Track left is A, Track right is B, Scene Up C, Scene Down D
CH6: Track is changing view for A&B, Scene is changing view for C&D
Midi buttons 1-16 (the channel cannot be changed so it should be used for a single purpose): Upper buttons 1-8 are mapped for triggering a remix deck slot in C&D, so: 1-4 are slot 1 for deck C, 5-8 are slot 1 for deck D. Buttons 9-16 are loops (1,2,4,8) for the remix decks as follows: 9-12 for Deck C, 13-16 for Deck D.
A couple of notes: as i said, this has not been tested in a club, nor is intended, but if it works, it works. As this is V1, if anyone has suggestions, do let me know (send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can improve it. Also it does not have play buttons yet and other features which i would have love to add, but who knows, in time I will sort itt
