Understanding Instant Mappings
I apologize in advance for this a very specific and technical question. So I am using an MPD32 with the full version of Live, and noticed that the preset "Live Lite" in the akai MPD32 is instant mapped to arm tracks 1-8 with buttons S1-S8. I found this very useful and wanted to map S9-S16 to likewise arm tracks 9-16 with the instant mapping configuration, so in any project I work on, my preset on the MPD32 would allow S9-S16 to map tracks without me having to MIDI map these buttons on my own. I only figure this is possible because I noticed that if I create my own preset on the MPD32 and then use the same exact values for the MIDI Channel Field, Control Change Field, and Play Mode from buttons S1-S8 in the "Live Lite" preset with the S1-S8 buttons for my preset, then the S1-S8 buttons in my preset would be conferred the ability to arm tracks 1-8 just as they could in the "Live Lite" preset. This made me wonder if there were a way to learn the particular values for the MIDI Channel Field and Control Change Field that I would need in order to know how to program my buttons S9-S16 so I could essentially create my own instant mappings.
