Yah I was thinking it sounds like you don’t have the tracks “armed” to recieve midi input. Kind of a cool thing in live to be able to easily switch which instrument you are playing. Not like in Reason where you have to select the device. BTW MPK49 swtches are automatically mapped to this button, so don’t know if other controllers are the same?
I am also a new user of Live, just messing with Live lite right now which is pretty sweet because in R8 it supports rewire. I have been underwhelmed with the drum capabilities of Live although I know I am a super wek/lame user so I know it can do way more.
Im thinking rewire in drums from reason, but still perform live with Live.
