How do I get Ableton to accept midi mappings?
So I have a few Akai controllers including the APC20, LPD8, and MPK61. Unless I figure out which CCs go to things I can't seem to get Midi mapping to work. I've looked around and can't find a solution.
Here's an example. Say I create an Audio Effect Rack or something, anything, with turnable knobs, buttons, etc. When I switch on Midi Mapping and select the item then turn a knob on one of these controllers, I get the incoming Midi message light in Live but no change or notice that the mapping is being read. I've tried setting the 3 'USER' banks on the APC20 for the faders for this but they never seem to control anything. The midi light again comes on showing that signals are coming through, but the channels won't pick them up. HELP Please!!! This is driving me crazy as I slowly learn how to use Live. While I see it has lots of potential for me, and my controllers, this is a BIG stumbling block I can't seem to get past. The user guide also sheds little light on what to do here. It's as if some other preset prevents any changes.
