Midi mapping one parameter to multiple knobs.

I'm new to Live.  I'm using the Intro version.  It seems that from within the software I can only map a parameter/button/whatever to one midi controller button/knob/fader.  I can map one button/knob/fader from my midi controllers to several different software parameters but I want to be able to do it the other way around.

Does anyone know how to do this?  For instance, I want to have one button on my midi controller to control the speaker-on for tracks 1 and 2 simultaneously while still having an individual button on my midi controller to only control the speaker-on for track 1 and another to only control the speaker-on for track 2.

Thanks for any help.

    You can't map multiple MIDI messages to one parameter in Live without the use of M4L.

    Ah, but you can. If your instrument is already part of a group, ignore this part, but- Look down in your devices, right click on your desired device and 'group' it. It will become part of a new instrument rack. Or it already was and you didn't need to do this. Anyway-

    Once it's in this rack, look at the far left side of that rack, click the small knob that looks like a knob icon, ("show/hide macro controls"). Now you have knobs. Map one to your hardware knob. Now, to get multiple things to be controlled by this knob- find a control of almost any sort (e.g., a pitch knob or volume or something), right click on the control, "map to Macro X'. You can then find another control to send to the same knob, just keep in mind that it will now read "map to [whatever control you originally mapped]. The macro knob should now control multiple things. This can get a lot deeper but this is good for starters. Good luck.
