GCPro and Ableton question

Post by scottlwilson » Wed Jun 04, 2014 3:04 pm


I'm very interested in the GCP and wonder if cc control from GCP would trigger midi events in Ableton live along with control of my midi/loop pedalboard system?

Is this workable to have 8 buttons to trigger scenes in Live??

it's doable, but takes some effort.
the issue I found, at least with my testing, is that Ableton sees the buttons as pitch bend, only.
my solution was to use a midi translator to change the messages to my desired note type. and voila, Ableton control from the GCP.
YMMV, IMHO, IIRC, whatever.
