    Default Problem with my ableton and mad zacs weekly sample pack

    Hey i have been using mad zacs weekly sample pack with ableton and have encountered a problem

    When i use the midi fighter for finger drumming all the buttons work but the top row

    I checked the midi signal are coming out and they are correctly for the top row of buttons but they are not registering in ableton.

    When you push any other button the yellow boxes flash in drum rack but top 4 buttons do not

    I am completely lost need help

    what kind of MF?

    my guess would be (given it is a MF classic) that you are in internal 4 banks mode.. check it with the MF utility
    Setup: TP 2, VCI-400 EGE, MF3D, MF Classic, DIY-Midifighter, iPad 2, Aiaiai Tma-1 // Launchpad, Ecler Smac32, 2 CDJ900, Presonus Firebox, KRK Rokit 8 //

    Yeah it isnt in 4 bank mode

    The midi note the button transmits is correct for the drum rack

    Eg ableton says c2 ch 3 plays top right note on drum rack and the button is transmitting that signal but no sound.??

    That is the midi monitor output from bottom left to top right.
    Anyone see any reason midi notes arnt playing in drum rack.
    only thing i can see is that notes are c2 or c#2 woul it be that only 1 octave will register in abelton??

    Just found out it is not Mad Zacs drum rack but in all drum racks. At a complete loss as to what it is?

    did you add your midi fighter to the midi settings in ableton? I had king of the same problem with my mpd (which is now working perfectly). Go il midi settings in ableton, in the top raws make on with midi fighter, then turn on pist and remote.
    Hope it helped
