    Default Trigger Finger Question about assigning midi parameters to pads

    I have a Maudio trigger finger

    and it has 16 velocity pads as seen in this picture:

    So I know there are 16 pads, BUT is there any way to add MORE midi parameters to the pads?!?! So for instance

    pushing a button or somehow so in theory you would be making it a 32 pads (with only 16 physical pad buttons)

    ???
    the reason im doing this is im midi mapping songs to perform in ableton, but i ran out of room with only 16 pads!
    i have a performance FRIDAY 12/28/12 ! :'( please help!

    What you need to do is use the Enigma software to re-assign the MIDI notes that are assigned to each pad. You'll need to do this on multiple banks to span however many pads you want to use. For example, if you want 32 pads, you'll need 2 banks.

    For the first bank, you'll assign the notes C0-D#1 to the pads. On the second bank, you'll assign E1-G2, etc. Repeat this to cover however many banks of pads you'll need.

    I have a Traktor mapping for it that does this using modifiers, but no idea how to accomplish this in Ableton.
