This may seem like a very specific problem, and I'm not sure to the extent of this glitch. But when I was trying to fix it i couldn't find anything. This is aimed at people who use ableton live, a midi fighter and a launchpad.

Basically the glitch was after using my midi fighter 3d (an opening the midi fighter utility) When I plugged in my launchpad and started using it the lights would cut out roughly every 1 second meaning it was a systematic error.

Basically what i'm trying to sum up quickly for midi fighter and launchpad users, do not have Utility open when using the launchpad as it will make the lights cut out, and really distract and annoy you.
