Connecting ACPAD (generic MIDI Controller) to LabVIEW and Map Keys

Hi everyone,

 

I'm quite new to ableton, but I have watched a whole bunch of tutorials and got a good overview now (I hope).

I'm using ableton to connect my ACPAD (https://www.acpad.com/), play live music, loop, and control sound effects for my guitar. So I'm not building big arrangements or so.

The ACPAD got 8 pressure sensitive pads. When I connect it, and play a midi-channel containing the Operator-Synth the pads are automatically mapped to different sounds on the keyboard. Its not a scale, it more seems like Chord-tones to me.

Can anyone tell me how I can map my 8 pads to a normal C-major-scale, or any other scale?

I think there should be some straight forward way to do that, without mapping every pad itself to a specific note, is that right?

 

I have basically the same problem, when using a drumkit. I would like to change some mappings, so that the basedrum will appear on a different pad. In the drumcomputer I can just change the sound of each pad wich works, but when I want to use a different drumkit, I have to change the samples again, wich is not really straight forward.

 

I'd be glad for anyone who can help me with this, and I hope I'm not asking for some basic-function in Ableton I haven't found yet.

 

Thanks in advance!!

Best,
Tripmeister
