Has anyone else used the midiplus smartPAD with pd? I can get the rgb LED lights to turn ON when I am in "Clip" mode by sending the channel number associated with each color to the right inlet of [noteout]. I can't figure out how to turn the lights off though. This thing would be so much more useful/fun if I could just control the button lights....
Well I just looked at the manual and you certainly won't get any help there. Terrible. It does say that it has both "Ableton" and "generic" midi modes but gives no message implementation charts for either. Awful.
However, there could be hope. You could probably find those Ableton messages in the the Live documentation or the set up routines in the app itself. Also, If both modes transmit all the messages you need the unit to receive it's just a simple matter of using Pd or a midi monitor program to view the messages as you operate the device.
