Topic: USB functions via MIDI port

Hi guys,

I did a research but I couldn't find anything about this, not even on Google. So.. here's my question.

They told me that with the Launchpad Pro (in Ableton) I can have all the USB functions, but only using the MIDI port. The problem is... I haven't been able to achieve that, I couldn't even configure it. The reason why I want to go via MIDI, it's because my old Launchpad MK2 wasn't very stable via USB.

At the moment I go: LAUNCHPAD PRO>>midi to>>>SOUNDCARD>>>usb to>>> COMPUTER

THANKS!! Much love

They.. as in Novation support
What I mean is.. being able to control Ableton using the Launchpad Pro as if it was connected via USB but instead I am connected via MIDI to my soundcard (Focusrite)

Re: USB functions via MIDI port

so the midi port ON the lp ok , not usb to midi ok , well then you need to play with the setup button on launchpad and go to live mode BY this button
( thats what i did for me)
also check your link/midi preference to change that

Re: USB functions via MIDI port

well plug the cable from lp to your soundcard on midi out and soundcard to abelton

then on abelton connect your soundcard in : option /preference / midi-link

after that , turn on lp  and press setup to go to Note mode for playin an instrument


naother way to do it is

plug soundcard on lp in midi input

turn on lp and find it in midi-link

on setup mode select device


ps :
in setup mode :
green :live
blue :note
yellow : drum
pink : device
