Struggling to get my head around some mapping with Ableton (9.5) and the Alias. When I set up the Alias via it's editor I set the LED colours on some buttons etc, but then depending on what they are mapped to in Ableton this will change. Most notably this occurs with FX - I like to use buttons mapped to Beat Repeat for instance. However, once this is mapped the LED on my unit switches off, and then is only lit up when I press it down. Some mappings however do not do this, such as Solos, Looper Record button, etc.
Here's a breakdown of the scenario:
- open livid editor
- setup bottom left button as a CC msg, set the colour to blue. Button lights up blue on controller.
- open ableton, map same button to a flanger wet/dry. Blue LED now turns off.
- when I press the button, it lights up green (due to velocity?)
This is really annoying - any workaround to this to ensure that LED's with mapped colours etc stay switched on regardless of how they are mapped?
On a minor note, anyone know a good json text editor on mac? Whenever I try and download my user settings from the editor I just get a page with the string of code.
