How to make your midi controller "learn" macro- knobs

Post by Larvi » Sun Jan 03, 2010 4:33 pm

Hi everyone,
I purchased Live 8 in November and now that I have a midi controller (Axiom 25) I want to start making music with it. Now here's my question. In the demo version of 8 I used a UC-33e as a midi controller and everytime I played with an instrument and twisted some knobs, Live 8 "assigned" which knob changed which macro knob (like the upper left knob changes dry/wet, the one to the right of that changed echo and so on and so forth). Now when I try to twist the knobs on the axiom it doesn't change the macro-knobs unfortunately :(
Anyone has an idea what to change?

I would suggest reading the tutorial installed when you unpack "M-Audio Axiom Tutorial" under the "Using Live 6 with Third Party Products" download section. It gives insight on some of the Control Surface options and possibilities :)
