Because I created this show in a place, then when I played it in another place I had to remap all channels.

Thx for the update and the AKAI APC mini support! Yes, it works out of the box. Just three lil things I'd wish for the next update:

- Using the "BlackOut" button doesn't get a feedback via LED on the APC mini. It would be helpfully, to get the red LED on.
- I built a Tap-Button to sync chaser's speed with the music. Like above no feedback via LED. To get the LED flashs while pressing the button would be nice, to keep the LED flashing into the speed I triggerd would be perfect.
- MultiColorSupport. As the APC mini supports three colors at the 8x8 matrix, it would be great give buttons more than an on/off-feedback. Something like green for all useable buttons, red for aktiv buttons. Maybe one day it could be possible to add this to the settings of each button, so the user can choise by him self whitch color each button shows for aktive, standby or something like that. But now I'm dreaming. ;)

Thanks again for the great work!

It's from manual. You should read it, it will help for you ;)
AKAI APC LED Feedbacks
When using one of the Akai APC family controller, there is one feature that could come very handy: LED color feedbacks.
The default behaviour with Virtual Console buttons is: value = 0: LED off, value = 255: LED green
This can be customized when selecting an input channel, by pressing the "Custom feedback" button.
A new area is displayed, showing the possibility to enter a lower and an upper value. This is basically translated in which values QLC+ should send for buttons on/off states.
Since the MIDI protocol works in a range of 0-127 values, and QLC+ works in the DMX range of 0-255, the following table points you directly to the values you should enter to obtain the desired color of an APC LED. Basically they are taken from APC manuals and doubled.
Value LED color
0 Off
2 Green
4 Green Blinking
6 Red
8 Red Blinking
10 Yellow
12 Yellow Blinking
14-255 Green
It's interesting to notice that you don't necessarily need to keep 0 as lower value. For example with lower = 6 and upper = 2 the result will be: Function Off -> red LED, Function On -> green LED.

Thank You, Ovis,

I've seen the settings but for some reason it didn't work. Now after installing QLC+ again it seems to run. Sometimes I've to press each button one time to get the LEDs show up, sometimes they are all on after starting QLC+. Well, that's no prob for me aslong I know what to do.
