How to use Control Change with Yamaha EAD 10

Hello,  I've ordered an EAD 10 a few days ago, and I've got a question.

Well, my idea is to send CC with ableton to automatically change the preset I want during a song/show etc... I've read the manual, and It specifies the EAD10 can receive CC via channel 10 only.

In ableton I do the following procedure

and choose channel 10, but it doesn't work. Can you help me ?

    Not really a solution, but I hope this will get you on the right path.. 

    Did you check if MIDI is transmitted / received between Live and the EAD-10? (There is a MIDI-monitor in Live, at the top right of the screen -- twiddle some knobs on your EAD and you should see a little yellow square blinking in Live)

    If yes, check again if you changed the correct output(!) channel to 10 in Live (make sure it's channel 10 of your MIDI interface). MIDI input and output channels can be mistaken quite easily in Live's mixer, IMO (at least for me, when I was noobing around). 

    Also, check on your EAD if the receiving MIDI-channel is set to 10. 

    Good luck!

    Hello, thank you for your answer! After a few days of searching and asking Yamaha Staff, the problem comes from the EAD 10 which doesn't receive the CC/program changes even if the implementation chart describe the contrary. It's a bug, they are working on an update which will solve the issue (I wish). However I don't know when the update will be available.
