Looper goes haywire when triggering via midi

When I set looper operations to be activated via midi all attempts to loop after the initial loop goes very, very wrong.  It's like to records in halfspeed or something.  If I map all the same looper functions to (computer) keyboard keys all works as expected every time.  Currently, I have to use Bomes Midi Translator to change my midi footpedal to keyboard key strokes to get looper to function correctly.  I'm pretty sure this is a bug within Ableton since it happens or my PC or Mac.  Anyone else experiencing looper midi map issues?

    I'm having the same Problem!!  though I have the looper rec/play toggle mapped via max for live to param 1 of the device. It's happening on all tracks where I have a looper.

    sooooooooo

    I discovered the ctlout object in max (having completely overlooked it in my excitement over the max for live api .___. ) and midimapping from max DOESN'T glitch the pitch like using the api. . .  

     

    I'm interested to know if others have had problems with either M4L or midi control of the looper.  If you find theis threrd looking for an answer, make a post!

    Today the loopers are playing back an octave too high again.

    Have you made sure to assign the correct settings in Song control and Tempo control Pull down menus? If you explain to me your scenario I can help you with the correct settings. i.e., if you are looping to an other clips tempo or to a click OR if you are setting the tempo with an initial live loop...the settings will need to be different. I'm working on an hour long looping piece and it's working so far for me.

    Could you give me more detail on how you used the ctlout and specifically routing to MIDI learn the looper, I'm stuck on that one...
