AKAI APC MINI special mapping

Post by FabioeM » June 2nd, 2018, 8:19 pm

I think, it's difficuly is not the mapping for me, but the buttons down there.

The situation is we go to events, weddings with my father. He is not good at computers etc, so he only want to use the buttons down below (if the track is slow, press the slow button, if it's electro, the elctro button etc).
I want to be there also, and want to make some different things than the button does (disco button, and i press all the strobe highs for example).
How can it be possible?

I tried the cuelists, then the down buttons work, but i can't change that strobe to fast, because every buttons changed at every cuelists (because as far as i know, i can only put there cues that I want to make the cuelist start, it starts all of them).

So i need a solution to have buttons that trigger multiple buttons (start a cue) with the option to manually change that cue to an other.

I draw my example settings in paint, I hope, you will understand it.

Any idea would be appreciated.


Thank you very much :)

I have mine setup like:
Top 32 buttons Control Override Buttons are yellow and Blink when active
Bottom 32 buttons Control Cuelists are green and blink when active
Bottom round lights control fixture groups are Red and blink when active
Right round lights control tap, tap release, release all, ... are green and blink when active
Bottom Right square is BLACKOUT colors cannot be assigned
I use the sliders to adjust various parameters after selecting a group

Make override buttons and set them to flash mode for making everything strobe at once (only strobes while holding button. When released goes back to whatever was running)

Ok. My example wasn't good. I also want to start cues manually. (It's OK, strobing can be done with override buttons). But if I want to start another color chase for the led pars, or another movement for the moving heads, it doesn't work.

I tried setting some buttons to overrides, some to trigger cuelists, some to trigger cues, but the problem is, every cuelist changes the cues. Or is there an option when triggering a cuelist, not all of the cues will be triggered in that?
