How do I connect and map Roland A-49 ?

I have and it came along with Ableton Live Lite 9.5 license. I went to "Preferences" --> "MIDI Sync" but I can't find any control surface preset that matches my MIDI Controller.

There is a similar one, "Roland A PRO" but my keyboard is not a PRO model, so it makes no sense to go with this option. Basically, there are only 2 buttons I want to adjust, nothing special. I am just asking out of curiosity.

    I own the A-49. All A range products whether Pro or normal are similar to each other.
    The A-49 is just a stripped down version of the Pro but the knobs have the same functionality.

    I added Roland A Pro as a Control Surface and the two rotary knobs of the A-49 control the selected track's first/most popular two parameters.

    I don't know about the other buttons though. That's how I got to this post.

    The Joystick is assignable to most (though strangely not all) commands, only the left-right move. I use it to switch between two sounds as, unfortunately, I did not manage to make the 1 and 2 buttons work.
