This has been possible before R12 but you have now up to 32 switches which means to have some free ones to assign to different tasks while e. g. switch 1 - 8 are used as indicators.
Scenario: Launchpad MK2 and 4 combinators
- Add remote codec Launchpad MK2 that comes with R12. Combinator buttons 1 - 4 are mapped to the lower left of the Launchpad in the remotemap by default
- Add 4 combinators (I refer to c1, c2, c3, c4)
- On c1 select Switch 1, on c2 select Switch 2, consecutively etc. You can also remove all switches that are not selected
- When you now change MIDI tracks Launchpad will light up the LED pad that corresponds to the selected order position
E. g. for 8 combinators you have to add mappings for 8 buttons in remotemap.
