being the pernicious little fellow I am, i thought i would create the dialogue between Resolume and KMI here in this forum.
So i put to Resolume, who responded very swiftly, the 'problem' with their midi feedback for LEDs and whether anything could be done from their end,http://resolume.com/forum/viewtopic.php ... 3776441eab
"Our 'lacking' midi feedback system is actually pretty well thought out. For instance when changing active layers or clips, any dials or button controls mapped to the newly selected layer or clip will update their state on the controller. This happens regardless whether you're using a Novation Launchpad, Akai APC 40, NI F1 or Livid OhmRGB. Without the need for Bomes or P5.
I agree that some things, like LED color feedback for buttons, could really be improved. We have been working on this and we have some good ideas to make that easier to set up with most of the controllers out there.
But the guys at Keith McMillen have decided to go with a protocol for LED feedback that's different from everyone else's. At least, every other controller I know of uses mirroring for LED feedback. I'm sure they have a good reason to do so, but we simply don't have time to implement a specific setup system just for their specific protocol. So yeah, with the QuNeo you can find yourself needing to resort to Bomes wizardry."
Not trying to create any animosity between Your two companies, i just want to be able to play lovely eyepopping visuals with a wonderful eyepopping controller with full LED support.
As I said on the Res forum i don't mind getting my hands dirty with something like Bomes but surely it would be benefical to both companies to work this out.
The VJ controller market is wide, varied and open not like the ableton super elite who even have dedicated controllers, taking the bull like the horns and making the Quneo a true viable VJ option would be glorious. Since VJ's are a bit of a forgotten bastard child of live performance, embracing them could only be positive in terms of profit and a customer base.
As any practitioner in this area I will continue to look for solutions and even share them with the community,
But it would be great to see things moving at a higher level.
