Apologies if this isn’t the best place for this post, but the other topic that I found seems to have died and isn’t getting much attention.
I recently picked up an Akai APC Mini and I want to use it with Renoise as part of a live setup.
It seems like it would be a great controller for Duplex/Gridpie but for whatever reason there’s never been a full layout made for it.
I’m picking up where this topic left off:https://forum.renoise.com/t/creating-duplex-configuration-for-akai-apc-mini-controller/42662
The files in that post work and allow me to use the mixer on the device as well as some buttons for muting tracks (along with the code added in a post further down which allows the LEDs to switch back off).
Using that as a basis, I’ve tried to make a GridPie layout, with limited success. I’ve mapped the 8x8 grid of buttons, and have successfully used the device to trigger patterns, however I’m struggling to get my head around the colorspace functions, so patterns that are not empty but not playing are not lighting up on the device making it a bit hard to use.
Also I seem to have broke the mixer while adding the rest of this stuff and I’m struggling to see how as I didn’t change that code… EDIT: Fixed this, I had capitalized Mappings when it should have been lower case it seems…
I’ll attach the files I’ve made (keep in mind this is all work in progress stuff, probably full of incorrect code, as I’m basically attempting to patch this together from looking at the other layouts that come with it, and I’m not super familiar with LUA).
If anyone has any idea what they’re doing with this stuff I’d appreciate any help. I’d really like to get this working if possible.
Its seems like the actual functions are working, but the device isn’t lighting up the right way and I don’t know enough about how colorspace is handled to fix it.
Also if this is the wrong place to put this, apologies, if you can direct me to somewhere appropriate (preferably somewhere appropriate that actually gets looked at) that would be appreciated.
EDIT: Apparently I also misspelled ‘palette’… fixed, not that it really affected much.
