(Beginner) problems with the drum rack mapping - Akai MPD232


I am still learning to use Ableton Live 9 Lite, and I'm using my Akai MPD232 to work with it.

My problem is that when I switch pad banks on my MPD, the pads still lead to the same slot on the drum rack (for example my pad 14 leads to A4 regardless of the selected bank). I would like to map the drum rack differently in order to be able to trigger other slots when I change pad banks. Is there any way to do that?

I have found no information about similar issues, so this must be really obvious? Thank you for helping!

    The Ableton Live Lite preset on the initial MPD232 release isn't complete. The automapping for the MPD32 was much better and included the pad banks as well as properly being mapped for Superior Drummer, etc.

    For now you will have to do this manually because Akai does not have an update for Live or Live Pro.
