IAC Drivers / Midi controller conflicts?

Hey everyone,

 

I have some whizzy routing set up so that I can use IAC drivers to help me route midi controls so that I can assign one button to 'repeat' whatever scene I am in. It doesn't use any follow actions - just midi controls through the IAC BUS Driver, the big advantage meaning that I don't have to wait until the last measure of the bar before I hit the repeat button.

I basically have a pair of midi control channels and pair of audio contorl channels. When I hit the 'r' button, is turns them on and off in pairs enabling the repeat function.

 

The problem comes when assigning these to a midi footpedal - the whole thing goes nuts. It seems there is a conflict / interference between the midi foot controller and the IAC Driver. Without the IAC driver on, it toggles the channels on and off fine. With it on - it crashes / lags / randomly switches between the two modes.

 

Help?

    Hi !

    Same problem here.

    I've got a keyboard with relative encoders (they are independant from the parameter value they control, and just send + or - infos to the value they are mapped on), and I can't use them to map anything if the remote option is ticked in the Live preferences for the IAC bus.

    It seems that there is a conflict between this specific way of mapping (with relative encoders) and the IAC driver, as if there was a midi feedback somewhere ruining everything.

    I don't have any problem nor conflict when using theses encoders in absolute mode, but in my specific set up, it's almost useless...

    The symptoms are : chaotic move of the mapped parameter.

    Did someone experienced that apart from me and Makro99 ?

    Help (bis) !
