Scene launch buttons sending midi to keystroke for hot swap

Im wanting to map the unused scene launch buttons in note mode to the hot swap button "Q" in Ableton so I can swap samples from the LP...
I found an app called ministroke which is perfect.
Then map 3 more buttons for up and down arrow and enter button.
The only problem is *** The buttons are latching, so I have to press them twice for one click. Can I change this? ***
Another problem is... Im using them on channel 1, so when I use them as scene launch in session view, they still send keystrokes
Also, can I send some kind of led output to them to show what they do coloured? 
Another thing Ive almost done is map the buttons to this m4l patch to change vet presets via program change... [url][/url]

    The only thing I can think of is if there is a way to change the behaviour of the keystroke from toggle to momentary or vice versa-- if there is such a feature in the midiStroke, as I haven't used that program.

    Since you mention scene launch buttons I'm assuming you're using a Launchpad? You may want to try Automap: It's a bit outdated, however I use it with my Novation Nocturn to accomplish pretty much exactly what you're describing. With any luck it should recognize your Launchpad and let you do the same thing.
