Shift Lock & Transmit Mode Buttons Script

Greetings Forum!

I am trying to activate the 'Set Shift Lock Timeout' & 'Transmit Mode Button Events' described in the Programmer's Reference pdf.

I have spent some time giving myself a crash course in Pure Data but I am simply too novice of a programmer to easily pick up a new interface.

I'm wondering if anyone has created a simple Pure Data patch (I don't own a copy of MAX) to send the requisite hex messages to the devices, or knows of a simpler utility that I could use to flash the messages to the dicers?


Also, can I control the mode button LEDs with traktor midi out commands the way the other button's LEDs can be controlled?  I assume they are not tri-coloured but it would be great to be able to dim the LEDs to indicate shift states after shift lock is engaged.


Thanks in advance!
