how do you manually map two controllers without overlap

i'm having trouble manually mapping my korg nanokontrol and my mpk25

when making my own custom mappings there is overlap for example i try to map a wet/dry parameter to a knob on the korg and ableton will automatically map it to a knob on my mpk as well

    The easiest solution I can come up with is trying to get both devices on separate MIDI channels, though I'm not sure that's supported. Can't think of a reason why it shouldn't though considering that my "plain" MIDI keyboard also supports this particular feature.

    What do you mean by custom mappings? Midi mapping? You need to make custom scripts possibly, or reprogram the presets in these devices to different midi numbers. Happened to me once. Sorry that's a bit vague!

    You will to get your hand dirty in the Midi Remote script, but here is an exemple of what you want to do:

    You should read part 1 et 2 too, to get started.

     

    Good luck, except for these page, you are on your own.

    Also you can probably change the midi outputs of the hardware itself, and have a look at this

    Hi there

    same problem here, did anyone found new solutions?
    I have two different midi devices (APC40 and M-Audio Oxygen) and i want to map each knob on the two devices to a specific control on Ableton; but different knobs on different devices seem to send the same command to Ableton.
    E.g. i map Delay-X to knob 1 on my APC: the map setting list says cc74.
    then i map Reverb-Y to knob 4 on my Oxygen , and the problem is map settings reports cc74 as well, so that when i move knob 4 on my oxygen i have both Delay-X and Reverb-Y operating!
    Can anyone help please?

    Thanks

    Changing the MIDI is the easiest way to do this.  

    First change the MIDI channel that the device will be receiving on.  The default for MIDI Tracks is "All Devices" & "All Channels".  Stet the inputs to a specific controller and a specific channel.  

    Next, refer to the documentation for your controller, and set that controller to that MIDI channel.  This may either be on the controller itself or from an editor librarian software.  There are some controllers that will let you do this on more than a Global level.  For example: on my Akai MPK series controller, I have my pads triggering one MIDI Track (Drum Rack) on Channel 2 and the Keys are triggering another instrument (Reaktor) on MIDI channel 6.
