Midi Output to TouchAble From Ableton to Update Knob Positions


#1

I’ve used the control builder to create a series of knobs to control all the filters on all of my tracks from the same place, and I have some midi clips that when triggered, will reset the filters to the ‘off’ position, which is in the middle. It seems like when I add / remove tracks to the set, the mappings won’t stay mapped if I use the built-in touchable mapper to map the controls.

As a workaround, I have them send midi CC’s and I’ve mapped those CC’s to the filter knobs within Ableton. However, when I reset the filters by triggering the clip, the on-screen knobs don’t reflect the new middle position of the knobs.

It seems like having 2-way midi feedback to update the on-screen controls would be a no-brainer, as it is possible in many older midi controllers like the APC40 Mk1 or Machine Mk1. Is there a way to get the on-screen knobs to update correctly?
