Hi,

Which version of Emulation are you using to test this?

If this is a change in the midi map, the solution could be to copy the working midi map from documents/Elation/Emulation/midimaps/factory/akai to the Visual Productions/Cuelux/midimap/user/ folder.  It  should then appear as an extra item on the list in Cuelux (after restarting the software)
If this does not solve it, the issue is likely introduced into the software at some point, and needs to be fixed. (Emulation software has been discontinued for a long time, so there is quite some difference between Cuelux and Emulation nowadays)

Greetings,
Bootsy

Hi,

Actually, there is one more thing you can try. In the midi map, inside the Akai APC mini there is this line:

<action>
    <trigger type="Midi" specifier="Change">Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 98</trigger>
    <tasks>
        <task type="Special" feature="Blackout" function ="Control"/>
    </tasks>
</action>

That might need changing to:

<action>
     <trigger type="Midi" specifier="Down">Channel 0 - Message 9 - Index 98</trigger>
         <tasks>
             <task type="Special" feature="Blackout" function ="Toggle"/>
         </tasks>
</action>

I added the modified file, could you give it a try and let me know?

Please note that the office is closed next week, I will respond after that.

Greetings,
Bootsy
