Just got my Padkontrol... and I'm stuck.

Post by peterneo » Wed Aug 20, 2008 10:12 pm

Can anybody help me with assigning the knobs, x/y pad, and pads to the DAW functions in Live? They show that they are releasing midi cc, but every time I go to the midi map them, nothing happens. I've tried all the mappings in the midi tab, but nothing seems to work. If somebody could give me a quick run down, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks for your time. Peace.

On a side note, could anyone explain what the possibilities of Native Mode are
and what is available on Vista to utilize it?

Thanks again.

If you want instant use set it up as a control surface and use drum rack.

Also, you will need to activate 'Track' and 'Remote' on MIDI port A to map the X/Y pad.
