Hi all, funny thing happened on the way to a great set:

whilst mapping and prepping for a live set, using apc20, launchpad, & a bcr2000,
i ran into a midi problem:
here's the set up...

midi prefs
apc20- input/output - track/sync/remote enabled
launchpad - input/output - track/remote enabled
bcr2000 - nothing chosen in midi prefs at all.

i had to disable Remote for my launchpad, otherwise it literally won't exit user1 mode. blarr.
and then i can't map anything to user2 mode.

at some point something wen't awry with the apc20, fader 1 stopped working for basic volume control.

and the bcr2000 worked just fine for mapping.

also, in the middle of mapping everything: Live says it ran out of memory and shut down
(first time that's happened to me ever!)
thoughts?

There could be a conflict with MIDI channels and controls.

Issues with the Launchpad and AFAIK the APC is they have fixed MIDI channels to TX/RX on. If something else uses the same controls on the same channel it can cause weird things with things like the launchpad. I use to run a LP and BCF a while ago and they played nice together but I didn't use the user modes much.

I have Bome MIDI translator to overcome conflicts like this which takes some learning but is invaluable for managing multiple MIDI controllers for multiple DAWs.

yar, in session view,
i had the apc20 selected for input only on like 4 tracks.
the launchpad was only selected for 1 track.
and the bcr2000 was simply mapped for 8 send a & send b's.

with there respective midi channels selected also.

wonky.

still need to figure this out.

It can take a while to get everything playing nice together but when it's all configured to your own needs it makes everything easier and more enjoyable.

If you get a chance though I can highly recommend Bome since it does help out with not only this kind of stuff but also making MIDI devices do all kinds of non-midi stuff.
