that depends on what you want to use ur TF for.

do you want to trigger samples? launch scenes? enable/disable VSTs?

elaborate on what you want to use it for please!

I would but, like the previous poster said what are you trying to do?

On a mac they're plug & play.Since you don't have squat written in your sig. i don't even know what platform your on.

The one thing i can be sure of is that it makes for a shitty toaster so don't even try that......usb doesn't get hot enough and bread is still being sliced entirely to thick to fit in the fader trackings!!!!

I've already written them complaining of this drastic oversight......

Sorry,
New to Live and midi, I want to use the basic template from the trigger finger and I'm not sure how to get the template into Live.

Thanks

I don't know nor do i want to know anything about windows BUT, like i said,On mac the trigger finger is plug and play.

Perhaps you need to D.L a driver for windows??

After that's done,go into live and press the MIDI button on the top right corner of the screen.It will put a light blue shading over everything that is midi assignable.With the mouse click on the scene,clip or fader you want to launch or adjust and then press or move the button or fader on the trigger finger.Then press the same midi button again to get out of midi assign mode and that's it!

Refer to the manual for more details or pickup Live Power from your local barnes & noble it has lots of great info.

On Triggerfinger, preset 10 works great for Impulse, preset 16 is chromatic and works great for simpler / operator or other synths.

in Ableton press ---- apple M --- this turns the arrange blueish, purpilish and this is where you can map the TF to do things.
For instance press slot 1 and press a pad. good to go

the trigger finger is transmitting on channel 10 out of the box.you may have to fix that. once you do that, it actually works.
