ok. here is what you can do to use the "blue hand" with your pocket dial:
set the pocket dial to one of the free presets. I use: 10011111
The pocket dial should now send:
"0" for when you turn knob 1
"1" when you turn the knob 2
"2" when you turn on the knob 3
and so on until "15" when you turn on the knob 16
check this with your midi monitor.
now in the "UserConfiguration.txt" file you have to search for "[DeviceControls]"
here you can now set:
Encoder1: 0
Encoder2: 1
Encoder3: 2
Encoder4: 3
Encoder5: 4
Encoder6: 5
Encoder7: 6
Encoder8: 7

now you upper row of knobs should control the selected device (blue hand)
You can also set it up that knobs 1-4 & 9-12 control the device, so it mirrors the setup in Abletons device view.

For the other knobs you can use the Midi Map Mode within Ableton.

Hope this helps.

I used the "UserConfiguration.txt" as nicolas.kellner suggested for quite a while now and always felt the itch to make o proper MIDI Remote Script for my beloved old Pocket Dial. After having worked on SelectedTrackControl (another MIDI Remote Script of mine) for quite some time now, I finally took the time and wrote this first version of my MIDI Remote Script for the Pocket Dial.

It uses the _Framework-Classes from Live 8 to get support for the red-box! It uses the 4 BANKS on the Pocket Dial on MIDI channel 1 – although switching MIDI channels on the Pocket Dial is very easy, I kept it easy for the start.

It currently supports:

Bank 1: Mixer – Volume/Pan (6 tracks with movable red box)
Bank 2: Mixer – Sends A/B (6 tracks with movable red box)
Bank 3: Track & Device Ctrl
Bank 4: „LaunchDial“ clip launcher (6 tracks x 2 scenes with movable red box)
