launch control led behaviour

Hello, I have recently purchased launch control. I have noticed that in user mode the pads (set to toggle) do not remain lit when pressed. Is there anyway to change the leds behaviour so that when I press a pad its led remains lit until I press it again?

Thank you! :)

I'm amazed that the pad LEDs are not available under user mode - this needs fixing ASAP please

I think you should try to create a MIDI track in your DAW, and choose the Launch Control XL as the input and output of that track, then enable input echo. If it works as I expect, you should be able to choose the pads' colour depending on note velocity, exactly as a Launchpad does.
