drumazon - ableton midi HELP!

Post by mindweb » Mon Jul 02, 2012 11:04 am


i' d like to connect drumazon & ableton with my midi controller but i have a little problem.

can anyone help me figure out why ableton recognizes only rotary knobs and not pattern buttons (host option) in the midi map section?

any ideas or "how to 's"

I'm sorry, but using Midi Control Codes you can only alter sound parameters in Drumazon, if you want to change patterns using external MIDI hardware, you are able only to do that using MIDI notes. But Drumazon needs to be switched into a Host mode. Unfortunately this approach requires to have some kind of on-fly quantization turned on in a host application, because Drumazon responds to a MIDI notes instantly and this could cause some issues with synchronizing drum line generated by Drumazon with rest of Ableton Live's project. So the incoming notes have to be snapped to a lenght of pattern (1 bar).

Best regards,
