APC Mini Wont Respond

Post by serge_a_storms » Sun Jan 22, 2017 6:11 pm

Hi all,

I've been working on a track all afternoon and I thought I might try jamming with it out using the APC Mini. I bought it when I had a windows machine and it worked fine. I now have a mac so this is the first time I've connected the APC Mini to it. The lights come on but none of the buttons are responsive. I can't launch a clip, move a fader, nothing. I'm using live 9.7.1 so I believe I'm up to date. I've got the app selected in the midi preferences page. Live is showing a red box around the first 8 tracks so all should be well. But it isn't. If I open a new live set it seems to be responsive. It's very frustrating. Anyone else come across this? Surely I should be able to write a track and then decide to connect the APC afterwards and play with it?

Any ideas?

Does that particular track already have some midi mappings?

Maybe turn off 'Remote' in the bottom section for any instances of the APC

Without much prompting from me it decided to sort itself out.

Thanks for the responses.
