Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How do I map a specific keyboard shortcut or function to one of my A49's knobs?

A: To assign a function or keyboard shortcut to a knob on the Novation Launchpad Pro MK2 (A49), follow these steps:

1. Ensure you have the latest version of the Novation Components software installed:

2. Open the Novation Components software on your computer, and connect your A49 to your computer via USB.

3. In Components, select the "MIDI Learn" mode by clicking the corresponding button in the top right corner of the main interface. The background color will change to indicate that MIDI learn is active.

4. On your Launchpad Pro MK2 (A49), locate the knob you want to assign a function or keyboard shortcut to.

5. Press and hold the "Shift" button on the A49 while turning the knob you want to assign. The LEDs surrounding the knob will flash, indicating that the knob is now in MIDI learn mode.

6. On your computer, perform the action or press the keyboard shortcut you want to assign to the knob. For example, if you want to map the volume control function of your keyboard, press the "Volume Up/Down" keys on your keyboard while keeping the shift button pressed on your A49.

7. Once you've performed the desired action or pressed the shortcut, release the shift button on the A49. The LEDs will stop flashing, and the knob is now assigned to that function/shortcut.

8. You can test the assignment by turning the knob on your A49 and checking if it controls the corresponding parameter or triggers the keyboard shortcut. If necessary, repeat steps 5-7 for other knobs and functions you wish to map.
