how do i get the cue/solo buttons to send midi to my midi controller such that the led lights go on/off in sync with ableton?

I have a controller that has led buttons but when mapped to the cue / solo buttons, the lights don't come on or off.

    In "preferences"- go to the MIDI tab.

    Select the midi controller and make sure both input and output are assigned to the correct midi port. Then activate all options (track, sync and remote) for this controller.

    This will enable ableton to send a midi signal back to your controller, activating the LED whenever you trigger a button.

    If you're working with a controller which has preset mappings from the manufacturer, make sure your LED and touch button are not assigned to a different MIDI channel- You should be able to change this by using the manufacturer software. (e.g. M-audio uses enima etc...)

    Also- 9/10 your manufacturer will also have a default ableton mapping nowadays anyway- just use that one then...

    That technique works for midi cc commands.  Apparently, the Cue / Solo buttons use Midi Note commands.  I don't think midi note commands are able to trigger LED for on/off but I could be wrong.  The LEDs work fine for other things like tracks, eq cuts, etc...just not for cue / solo.

    Any ideas?
