MIDI mapping Scene Select in Live 11

Post by bruceRichmond » Mon Apr 19, 2021 3:47 pm

In Session view I am trying to use a CC to change scenes from an external midi controller or software. For example, I have mapped CC 121 Channel 16 to the Scene Select control. I have tried a few different CC's. When I send CC 121 with a value of 1 this selects scene 1. However when I send CC 121 with a value of 2 the scene does not change. If I send a value of 11 or 20 then it changes to scene 2. A value of 30 selects scene 3. A value of 70 selects scene 6. Obviously something is not right here. Has anyone else tried to do this? Is there a better way to do this? I use Cantabile for my live keyboard rig. I am hoping I can change scenes (backing tracks) in Ableton as I change Songs in Cantabile and then start the song in Ableton with a footswitch. All of this should be possible and is mostly working except for what I described above.


Thank you
