Feedback from Isadora to Akai apc40... is there a way?



  • Hello all,

    I recently got an akai apc 40, which I´m planning to use to control Isadora. One feature I particularly like about this control, is the feedback possibility with programs like Live.
    The question is quite simple, Is there a way to make that response happen with Isadora?
    Thanks a lot for any help.


  • Isadora can definitely send MIDI back to controllers for feedback but Akai describes the APC 40 as communicating "USB-MIDI with a proprietary hardware/software handshake" so it is possible you will run into some issue depending on what that means.



  • Thanks Matthew,

    Yes I understand that Isadora can send out midi, however I´m totally ignorant about how to approach that to "map" back the controller, so I can get visual feedback and see those nice green, yellow, red lights on, so I could know what is active and what is not in the patch. 
    Thanks again

    in Isadora you have to program the visual feedback yourself. the color is controlled by sending different velocity values.

  • Hi Michel,

    Thanks for the help, I guess is a lot of work right?... well I guess it is worth it.
    This put me into the proper direction.

    It is a bit of work but not to bad.
    I did it for the launchpad, it has 64 pads. I have the patch at work but this week I work out of the house as freelancer, not sure if I can make it to post the patch this week. Maybe next week.

    Here is the LaunchpadLEDfeedback user actor. Maybe a point for you to start.
