Setting up PercPad with Live 8
I have the Lite version of Live 8 and have been trying to figure out how to use my Alesis PercPad as a controller. The problem is, I can't seem to even get Ableton to recognize that I have my PercPad plugged in at all.
I'm using a MIDI to USB cable with the MIDI In plugged to the MIDI Out slot of the PercPad and the USB plugged to my Mac. Do I need to plug the MIDI Out part of the cable to a MIDI interface? As of now it's not plugged into anything.
The PercPad does not have a USB port by the way. It just has a MIDI Out.
