    Default MFT : how to have LED feedback ("ON COLOR") when launching clips in Ableton?

    I am using one of the banks of the MFT to launch clips in Ableton...
    the only way to do this is to set the swich action type either to Note or CC hold...if i set to toggle i have to press 2 times for launching clips...
    the problem with "hold" is that i don't see the visual LED feedback cause the LED momentarily show the "ON" colour and then goes back to OFF so i cannot see which clips are actually playing...
    is there a trick to circumvent this issue?

    What you are seeing is hardware LED feedback. This LED feedback is activated only when/if Twister is not receiving midi information back from the software which indicates a mapping issue.

    We can use Remotify to create the Session Box which has built in LED feedback mapping. Check it out it works great!

    Oh i didn't know about remotify...it looks amazing!

    although i am out of the studio now and i just gave it a quick look and did not understand properly the way it works..
    are you using a ready made script or you made the script by yourself..or just suggesting me it could be done...?

    I'm only giving you a suggestion on how to map the LED feedback without need to write a code.
    If you need some help with this feel free to send me a PM.
