Hi Everyone,
I'm struggling with something that's just confusing me :-(

I've got an akai midimix which I'm using happily for turning inputs off and on using shortcuts. I'm also enjoying the fact that the buttons light up when an input is active (by using activators)

BUT.... I can't get a button to light up when I use it to send buss B to my Master.
The button works using shortcuts, no problem.... I just don't know how to configure the activators section.

What do I put in 'Event' please?

Any help muchly appreciated

Thank You

There is no direct "Event" that can be used for this, but a bit of a "workaround" is to use the "BusBVolume" Event.
You will need to use two Shortcut buttons, one for SendBusBToMasterOn and one for SendBusBToMasterOff.
Clone each one and apply a SetBusBVolume Shortcut to each, Value=100 for On button and Value=0 for Off button.
Set the Activator for the On button to BusBVolume.

This may or may not fit into your Workflow, but it is the only way I know of to use the "Activator" for what you describe.
(a feature request is likely in order...)
