"toggle" mode on controller editor

In Controller Editor using Maschine is midi mode, Is there a way to make Toggle behave like a simple on/off. I can't seem to make it work without it requiring 2 taps for on and 2 taps for off. I've resorted to using Gate mode, but that mode doesn't keep the button lit as gate is momentary.

Anyone else experienced this?

    Hey thought I'd get back to this thread just to say it was solved by assigning "toggle" to the CC command in the UA Midi Console mapping software as well as the NI Controller Editor.

    All good now.

    i believe the software that you are using the Toggle button with... has to handle the events correctly, so check inside the software in question and see if it supports a toggle mode

    Hi thanks for the answer.

    Yes it does, I'm controling Cubase and also Apollo Console. other midi controllers do this no problem.

    It's an issue I'm having specifically with Controller Editor and Maschine mk3

    try using the trigger mode (CC) as opposed to midi notes

    if trigger mode does not toggle the switch on the software then the issue is with the software..

    if however you are trying to get the LED to give the correct feedback on whether it is lit or not... then the software needs to support midi feedback ... back to the Maschine deivce

    Sorry "trigger"

    Toggle is what I want, to see midi feedback on say a mute switch, I need to know it's muted by looking at the corresponding "lit" light without looking at the software.

    Thanks for your help anyway

    its possible that the feedback is being routed to another device... if thats the case, you may only be able to route feedback to one device only. unsure if you could use a virtual midi device as a go between *shrugs
