BCF2000 + APC40 MIDI Channels

Post by !STiTCH! » Tue Nov 29, 2011 7:13 pm

Hey, been away from the knobs and faders for almost a year (life got in the way of living) and have gone completely brain dead so forgive me. I have an APC40 and just picked up the BCF2000, they seem to be transmitting signals on the same MIDI channel causing some annoying problems - ie the fader i want to use on the BCF ends up sending the same signal as a fader on the APC40 and end up controlling one thing instead of the 2 different I want them to. Whats the best solution here? MIDI Ox/Yoke or something similar, or is there something I'm missing within Ableton I can do to solve this problem?

Thanks

Not sure about the BCF, but this document, http://www.akaipro.com/extras/product/a ... _rev_1.pdf will show you which channels the APC is using for various functions. Since you probably want the APC40 to stay in default mode, I would try putting the BCF on a different channel if it allows for that. It seems pretty much anything Channel 11-16 should not conflict with the APC40.
