are the mpk25 pad appropriate enough for velocity sens drum programming? Im not interested in triggering clips with it. I hear only bad about its pads :roll:

I got a very long explanation from Ableton tech support about this limitation, but was not satisfied as to *why* this could not be addressed in an update. (Whether it's a high enough priority is another question. But the explanation I got is that it basically could not be done.) BTW, I know I can manually map slider banks B and C. That's not good enough - because if you do that, and then reorder your track columns in Ableton, the mapping is all screwed up. Automapping (as occurs for bank A) is smart in that if I swap the positions of tracks 4 and 5, slider 4 will now control what is in the new track 4 position.

Is there a solution to this behaviour? I just got MPK249 to replace APC40 (I don't use session view) and lack of automap for banks beyond A (1-8) is killing me. :?
