Select Scene with a controller

Is it possible to select (not launch) a scene via midi map?


I don't want to launch, just select it.  I want to program some buttons to select certain scenes. (it could launch the scene, but not necessary)

    Click on MIDI (in the menu bar on the upper right hand part of the screen)

    This initiates MIDI Map Mode…the screen should turn a different color; purple for example.

    It might be helpful to have the INFO View box enabled…to help with names.

    In the MASTER Track, after the Scenes, there is a space called, "Mixer Drop Area".

    There should be 4 icons; Scene Launch, Scene Up, Scene Down, Scene Select.

    There you can click on the "Scene Select" and move the continuous control of your choice; I chose knob #1 in Device Control on my APC40.

    Once all is OK, click on MIDI in the upper right hand side of the screen to turn OFF MIDI Map Mode.

    I hope this helps.

    Yes, you can midimap scene selection and launching to buttons on a controller. With Automap you have a virtually infinite number. The Launchpad is best for this though.
