Re: midi foot controller for loop triggers manipulation et al
Sorry, but you're wrong. Try switching Midi-map learn mode on and off
(Ctrl-M on the keyboard) and look on the screen specificly at each channel
(and Master) where the "Sends" box is. Notice how a new extrabox pops up
dissapears when turning midi-learn on and off?
Notice on the Master channel how that new box contains a play button and 2
up and down arrows and a square with a number?
There's your MIDI-mappable "Scroll up/down" and "play all", or on each
channel "Play selected clip".
Now go ahead and map that to your FCB and enjoy Live even more! ;)
