how can I control the scenes launch of two different ableton with an Akai APC40?
a simple problem:
we have two macbook pro (running Ableton live) clock synced through two mAudio Fastrack Pro connected through i/o Midi ports. This is fine. We have an Akai APC40 connected to the master mac and we'd like to control with its standard mapping the scene launch of both our Ableton.
The goal is to launch a scene on both macs with one controller.
Is it possible? how?
Our best result: we send/receive midi messages between the macs through our soundcards. Our Midi settings:
Master ableton soundcard output: track_on sync_on remote_on
AKAI APC40 input: track_off sync_off remote_on
AKAI APC40 Output: track_off sync_on remote_on
Slave ableton soundcard input: track_on sync_on remote_on
the problem is that the message received was not consistent: we mapped an AKAI's scene launch button (for example A#1) to launch a scene on the slave mac but the received message was always a CC (1/4 or 1/11, 1/10...apparently random)
