APC40 II rotary encoders and Live instrument fx parameters: "where is here?"
i am writing with a question about using LIVE 9 (standard) with APC40 mkII.
the two function well together, but i find that when i start to work with the rotary encoders in DEVICE DETAIL view i quickly lose my point of reference for which control i can expect to adjust (obviously, the APC does not display dynamic labeling on its rotary encoders, so one is by default "in the dark" here).
and of course each device in live has its own controls as well. so i understand that for each device the rotary encoders will line up differently.
however there seems to be no consistent approach that i can determine for interpreting or even guessing what the role of each encoder will be once i change device focus or banks within the same device -- i basically just have to start turning encoders until i find out "where i am".
has anyone developed even a general guideline for what to expect from the encoder layout and bank-to-parameter-group assignments when one works with devices? having to search around to find the parameter i'm hoping to adjust consumes both time and attention (and of course other things may get changed in the process).
i am certain many might suggest that with PUSH one might not encounter this difficulty, but APC is what i have!
any suggestions (if suggestions even exist!) would be greatly appreciated. perhaps the answer is simply: yes, that's just how it is and that's that!
