New Launchpad Pro Mk3 controller integration on 10.5


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to install the new Launchpad Pro Mk3 controller integration from LPX 10.6 and later on LPX 10.5?

For example, can I take an LPX 10.6 com.apple.logic.pro.cs file with the new integrated mapping instituted, and replace the corresponding file on 10.5, and then have access to that mapping?

Good question about backward compatibility. I’m on Logic 10.6 with a LaunchPad X. During setup there’s a script to run from the Components app but I’m unclear what changes/addictions it makes to the *.cs file. When I look at Controller Assignments in Expert View there is a zone defined as “Control Surface:LaunchPad X” but there isn’t much there. I can’t see a reason this wouldn’t work with Logic 10.5


My bigger concern would be everything else you have defined as control surface in the *.cs file.


Also, I wonder what Logic integration you’re expecting from your LaunchPad? It’s been my experience that there isn’t much. Some basic DAW controls in Session mode, plus loop triggers in Live Loops. I had to create a custom mode to get transport controls and do some midi note ‘learning’ for Drum Machine Designer. I’ve chatted with Novation asking why they don’t deliver more Logic integration out-of-the-box.

Thanks for the reply... My main issue, is that it is my understanding that the new integration does away w/ the need to ‘turn’ the Launchpad sideways to match what you’re seeing in LPX... Is this true? I know it’s a small thing, but due to my setup and cable arrangement, I would prefer greatly not to have to resort to this workaround...
