Lightkey 2.5 is all about external control and synchronization: We introduce Live Triggers, a unique way to control lighting cues directly from Ableton Live, and we’ve developed a lickety-split method for assigning external control triggers to objects in the user interface.
Sync & External Control
- Live Triggers let you trigger lighting cues directly from the Ableton Live timeline.
- Assign external control triggers to many user interface objects from their contextual menu.
- New external control actions to deactivate all presets, sequences, or cues.
- The MIDI controller list has moved to the Preferences window. It is now possible to select individual inputs/outputs of a device.
- The option for creating a MIDI input port has been removed. Lightkey always creates an input port.
- Auto-creation of bindings in the External Control window can now be disabled.
- When switching between attached buttons in a control panel Lightkey now performs a real crossfade between the cue values. This prevents effects like a decrease of dimmer intensity during the transition.
- Lightkey also performs a crossfade when switching between Live pages.
- Improved performance when saving projects.
Lightkey 2.5 requires macOS 10.13.
