I'm using a trigger finger to play notes on ableton soft synths (Operator, etc), but, the notes won't play in order. Anyone know how to fix that? Scale plugin or...?

I'm pretty sure it works on preset 10, hit the program button, then the 10th pad (will flash p10 ). If that doesn't work, you could try the other presets, or create your own using Enigma, or you could set up what notes the pads send manually like this: http://etechdocs.com/tutorials/triggerf ... ually.html

right. this is the preset i'm using, and what i've set up. as i said, it doesn't play ableton instruments in chromatic order. This is what i'm trying to achieve. Drum racks and macros work great.

any ideas?

I don't know what you're still looking for, I linked you to a guide to manually resolving it, you hit the [memory recall] and [prog/bank change] buttons simultaneously, hit the first pad, use the bottom left (C1/Note/Min) rotary knob to dial in a note (they appear on the Trigger Finger's readout (sharp/flats will look like [note].1 instead of [note] 1) you will have to turn the knob very slowly as they are exact positions, not ranges, then hit the next pad, repeat for all pads, then hit Save and exit, then hit one of the pads (whichever number preset you want to save it to) and then you have your chromatic TF preset. Do you perhaps need a video? Here I made you a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vA2k44Tt ... e=youtu.be

well fortunately it is pretty straightforward, I used to try using the Enigma editor they provide for this purpose, but it is, shall we say, not the most intuitive piece of software around, the manual preset setting is far more straightforward, hit a pad, dial in the note you want, repeat, then save.

I'm pretty sure there's no actual octave jump buttons, but if you hit the mem. recall and prog/bank buttons at the same time (like when you set up the pads), you can use the transpose slider (the first of the 4 sliders, conveniently labeled "transpose") to shift the notes up in semitone steps, so just move it until it's at +/- 12 or 24
