Midiplus SmartPAD NoteOff before color change

Hi Folks,

I am - since yesterday evening - a proud owner of CSS and I love it!

I spent most of the night clicking my configuration for a "Midiplus SmartPAD" which is a low-budget 8x8 pad controller with 8 rotary encoders and some more buttons.

Image here:

Now my current problem is, that once a color is being sent to a pad/button it stays as is until it receives a noteoff with velocity.
I thought maybe I can find something in the python code itself, but I realized I'm in way over my head ˆˆ.

Is there an easy way to send a noteoff to each button before setting a new color (little code snippet would suffice I guess)?


PS: Attached you'll find the python script generated by CSS

Hi Sebastian,

Sorry for the delay in my reply. The easiest way to send a midi off value to all controls is to switch to a new mode.
When the active mode is switched, the script automatically sweeps through all controls (which have been added in Controller Manager) and sends the configured midi off value to them.

The most simple thing to do in your case would be to add a 'Mode Selector' button but set it to simply switch to the same mode. This will send the midi off value to everything and re-activate the same mode. All with a single press.
