Re: Mobius in Ableton Live and Offset MIDI Program Change #s

I just checked at the Live forum and it seems Live is quite rude with
MIDI Program Change messages. In fact people says Live converts them
to MIDI CC# messages. If that's true it is a true bummer. Nice to hear
you found they actually arrive, although by a different value. Maybe
better use something else than MIDI PCh. Or if you have some plugin
that really needs PC's to work ok you could use CC#s and put some MIDI
converter plugin (Bidule?) right before it to convert incoming CC#s to
PC's. Or use PC's and transform the value a step.

But why can't you MIDI learn whatever your pedal board is sending in
the plugin? That's the usual procedure. Ableton Live also has its own
MIDI Learn system for external parameter control (that is IF the
plugin is properly designed according to the VST/AU protocol - not
every plugin out there is, especially in the VST domain)
