pofessional midi mapping on apc40 with live

Hi guys hope you can help me with this


I use an apc40 with live for live mixing, I use serato sl3 as an audio interface with a bacbook.


I created a template using some of the akais pre midi setups ( manly clip lunches) and midi mapped the nobs the faders and the little buttons right on top of the faders.


In my template I use 3 audio tracks each one with some rack effects and so.


In between of each audio track (1,3,5) I use another 3 tracks (2,4,6) on this tracks I don’t load any clips. I just use them so I can have a vertical line with no lights between the channels 1,3, and 5


What I wanted to do as I have seen tracktor users doing, is to use those chanels with no lights (no clips loaded) tu perform as VU meters.


I understand this could be quite difficult as it requires some advance midi configuration…



Any one can help me with this?

    Think you will need something like Max4live to do this.

    . But you already have Vu meters for every track on the screen.

    There is a way to do this without Max4Live involving making a custom MIDI remote script for the APC. Will Marshal figured it out, so maybe try getting a hold of him.
