Hello folks

as you can read in the title

i've got a problem with my ableton-setup.

I'm using APC 20 alongside MPK 49 in ableton live 8

i'm trying to set up my APC as mixer, it controls the levels of all instruments and the last track is the master (a normal setup)
and my MPK 49 faders of channel A as the drawbars of NI's B4.

my problem is;

that the master level of my APC also controls the third drawbar of the B4-plugin (Fader 3 on my MPK 49) and vice versa.

can anyone tell me what the problem is, is it in my setup? and how can i be shure that both controllers are seen as 2 individual controllers.

grts

It is a guess on my part but I think your MPK is on the same midi channel as your APC.

I have no experience with it (the MPK 25 is still on my wish list ;-)) but I do notice that the controls seem match those somewhat of my MPD. So here goes; if this doesn't work you really should check your manual or reference guide on how to do this.

My suggestion is to set your MPK to midi channel 2 so that it doesn't overlap with the APC.

My guess on how to do this:

- Press 'global' (under your lcd display).
- Press "move right" (under the jog/enter dial, to the right of your lcd).
- Now eventually something like "Channel 1A" might appear.
- Now use the jog/enter dial and click one clock wise to turn this into 2A.
- Now continue pressing "move right" until it says "save setup".
- Click enter (push the jog/enter dial).

Keep in mind: do this when Live isn't active, and start Live after finishing this task.

Now if all went well you shouldn't have these issues anymore.

If something on your MPK doesn't match my guessed points don't continue but check your reference guide on how to change the midi channel.

i found what it was (with the help of my teacher), and it was kinda simple.

i just had to switch of the remote button in the midi/sync-tab (preferences menu) and this for the in- and output of my APC

That is not the correct way to setup your APC in Ableton.

'Remote' is used in Live to allow a midi device / controller to "remote"ly control Live. So if you turn 'Remote' off you'll loose the option to midi map any of the APC controls to something else.

So I wouldn't go that way.
