Midi Mapping APC40 MKII

HI Guys,

I have created an instrument rack with simpler and an EQ8. I have assignned some of the controls from the Simpler & EQ8 to the macros on the APC40 device knobs and then saved to my user library. Now I have got this rack on all of my channels because it is easier auditioning samples etc; and tweaking them.

The thing that I don't know how to do is have the APC40 device knob controls working on each channel the same. It does not automatically work and if I midi map again naturally is is adjusting the same parameters on the previous channel.

Hope that this makes sense.

    Use the automap feature. I use my MK II just with the auto mapping.

    The blue hand icon indicates the device which you control. If you want to control your rack macros just highlight or select the device trough your apc40 and youll see your knob leds light up and update to the values. It controls them 1-8 and you have different banks.

    Do not midi map, if you dont want the values and controls to stick to one knob, just select the device and control. The apc40 series and push has the most useful controlling features in LIVE.

    IF you want them to stick, use the user mode on your send knobs. It's a handy feature.

    Its possible i didn't get your message completely though. Somehow its kinda unclear what your trying to say.

    Hi Sepi, I have realised that the macros automatically map to the device control.

    I think that there is an issue with rotary knobs 1&4 because they don't adjust macros 1&4. They also do not light up the same as the others. IE; normally when you rotate them them the LED's light up until rotated fully clockwise and all lED's are lit and then fade as you rotate anticlockwise.

    Rotary knobs 1&4 only light up one or two and go out as you turn clockwise.

    Not sure if this is an issue with the two rotary knobs or Akai can reset them.
