External device MIDI program change

Post by mikikiki666 » Tue Jul 23, 2013 9:59 am

I'd like to control my Elektron Octatrack through Ableton

When Octatrack program change is controlled by an external device it is always quantized, so that it changes when the current pattern is finished

I can send program change from Ableton to octatrack; the problem is that only when the scene on ableton is changed the program change is received by the Octatrack, so the octatrack from this moment waits untill the pattern finish THEN it changes

So I cannot change in the same moment Ableton scene and octatrack pattern

How can I do that?

I'd also like to know this, in case anyone has figured it out. :)

Turn off the quantization setting for the clip that has the program change.
