Hello to all,

I have a question to devicecontrol in ableton.

I have a foot pedal with eight buttons and one pedal (encoder).
So by automapping I can only control 1 macro from the 8 macros in the rack.

Is there a possibility to navigate between the 8 encoders of one rack.
So, that I would be able to select the different macros via two buttons...

This would be fantastic for playing guitar changing the sound while playing... :D

Thx for your help,

You could assign the mod pedal to control macro 1. Then assign the pedals each to select a different rack. So make multiple racks. Or embed racks.

To assign a pedal to a rack just map it to the top bar of the rack used for selecting and naming the rack.
