A couple of basic MPD questions

Post by no sir e » Tue Mar 06, 2012 2:20 pm

Hey there, first post and (sorta) new Ableton user!

Ableton 8
Windows 7

#1 I'm using an mpd18 with my live performance setup. I'm trying to get one-shot drums and effects to play on the beat with the other music, but I'm not sure how to get the MPD so that it syncs with Ableton's clock. How do you get it to sync, as well as quantize (to let's say, oh, 1/16)

#2 I've noticed mapping the drum pads is pretty weird. The pad assignments on Ableton are all over the place. How can I get my mapping so that all the pads for each bank are viewable right next to each other?

Thanks, and hello once again.
