Using Icon i-controls with Live

Hi all

Just have a question about using the Icon i-controls midi controller with Live 9.  

I hope I explain this right...

Basically, when I map a control - in this case a dial rather than a slider - to, say, the 'track pan' within Ableton - the hardware dial doesn't turn the software dial all the way round...  So even though I'm turning the hardware dial fully from left to right, the software version it's controlling gets about half way round.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

    It looks like the knob is not sending a 0-127 midi data.  Maybe it can be set with Icon´s software. check their site.

    try to go in the midi preference menu and set "mackiecontrol" in the first column, the "icontrol port 1" for the second and third columns.

    I found it on the icon website and worked well for me.
