Ableton 11 not saving instrument mapping

Post by Antzz » Sat Jun 12, 2021 2:31 pm

Hi, Ableton 11 Suite, windows, Midi Fighter Twister. I'm trying to work out the best way to save midi mappings of MFT. I could set up templates, but what I would prefer is to have an instrument rack with macros mapped to MFT. So I tried that, but when I save the instrument rack as a preset it doesn't save the MFT mapping. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Thanks

Mappings aren’t saved with a rack.

But if you set the MFT up as a control surface, you can have ‘automatic’ mapping.. but that might be kind of different from what you’re looking for.

Still, combining that with a few max devices for heavier mapping, and possibly using more than one control surface (or a deep custom one, or maybe a max device), you could possibly get something a lot more customized created.

Otherwise, it’s hard to beat the classic method of mapping manually.

Thanks for your quick responses guys.

Bonkers that Ableton isn't able to save mappings for an instrument rack but it can save it as part of a project or template.

I will defo try out that MFL device Schlam, cheers dude.
