Hi, I have the Launchkey 49 since a few days, and I just can´t make the pickup function work properly.
In Ableton Live 8 I could narrow it down a bit:
When connection the Launchkey and starting Live, at first the Pickup mode works fine. As soon as I toggle the InControl with the button next to it and switch to normal Midi mode and back to InControl, it won´t work anymore. The rotary knobs still perform pickup, but as soon as I switch the mode here also and back, it´s not working anymore. This can then only be fixed after quitting Live and starting up again. Then it works until the same procedure is done once more....this is quite frustrating.
In Logic the problem is even worse:
Here Pickup Mode won´t work at all. I tried everything, switching the mode on and off in Logic preferences, switching Incontrol mode on the Launchkey. Actually I just found a workaround for the faders: In the control assing mode, just move a fader. The Control settings for it will appear. When you change the Feedback mode from "automatic" to "no dithering", It will actually pick up the faders!
I tried the same for the rotary knobs, but it won´t work with them. Sadly, they are no endless knobs, so I hope that maybe someone else has an idea how to make them work with "Pickup Mode".
Anyone experiencing the same problems in Ableton Live and Logic?
