midi mapping with control s2

Hello,

I am trying to make a custom midi mapping with the control s2 and basically I want to know if there is a way to map a midi button that will trigger another midi button on the controller at the same time.

My mapping consists of pressing the Samples button on the controller which will switch a modifier 1 to state 1 and will light up a couple of pad buttons green indicating the state of the fx buttons in Traktor and pressing the buttons will turn on/off the effect unit.

when you press samples button again, the modifier 1 goes back to state 0 but the green buttons stay lit and the cue points on the tracks, which are blue color on the pad don't go back to being blue again. There is a workaround to pressing the Shift button on the control s2 which will reset the pads back to their current blue cue points.

So I want to map the samples button when it goes back to modifier state 0 to also press the shift button automatically so I don't have to do it manually every time.

    Reverting to the original LED states doesn't work right with midi mapping. The qml code has to register your switch as well. What you want requires new code in one of the qml files for the s2.

    This is a promlem with all the new controllers using qml code, Kontrol S8 and all controllers after that.

    Ok i see, guess i am stuck with what i got.

    i noticed that the mk3 is not supported on the controller editor app, only mk1 and mk2 is that because of the qlm code as well?

    Shift + Pad button is the fastest work around. The S2 Mk3, S3, S4MK3 and D2 and S8 totally fails at this and it is one of known issues that never got fixed. It is probably due to screen mods being used more than basic overmapping.

    Can I just add the code myself?

    I wouldn't bother just to fix the LED, unless you want to go knee-deep into the job of a software engineer.

    You could try to create the hotcues mode inside the controller manager. It will be limited to what colors you can choose (no black and white) but should update the modifier state LED fine. As long as default hotcue page is overwritten.
