    Default The weird case of Ableton Midi denial.

    Ableton recognizes it. The computer also. It just does not work. My Launchpad and QX49 don't work with ableton anymore. All drivers installed and it still does not work. In the midi port section they appear in a orange text.PLEASE HELP!!!!

    PS. I spended 10 hours on Christmas day trying to get it to work and nothing happened.

    Top right hand side of the session/arrangement view - there is a little green keyboard icon. Try toggling it on/off (CTRL + SHIFT + K) and seeing if that makes a difference...
    Performance: 2xTechnics 1200MK2, DJM 850, Dicers, Zomo MC-1000, Sony MDR-v700, Sony VAIO
    Production: Ableton Live 8 and a mouse, MOTU Ultralite, Sennheiser HD400, Sony VAIO

    If you click into midi learn mode can you assign button mapping manually ?

    I'd suggest first posting more info

    Is it a new Computer?
    Computer Type:
    USB Version: 2.0/3.0
    Operating System:
    64bit / 32 bit :
    Ableton Version :
    Does midi work with other Applications e.g. Traktor ?
    Any recent updates to the Application or OS ?
    Is there any other applications open that may be using midi ?

    Honestly though sounds like Ableton is possibly corrupt somehow if you cant even map the regular keyboard & never seen the orange text before - maybe a windows thing ?

    Usb version: one 3.0 and two 2.0 I believe.
    Operating system: Windows 7 64 bit
    Ableton live lite 8.2.1(thinking of getting live 9 when released)
    No midi with other softwares
    no recent updates
    maybe automap but I cheked and it had no sign of getting anything.

    It is defenitly a windows thing.......It happens to windows7 to a rare amount of people.It used to happen to live 6 users also.

    Can you check if midi is being received at all by testing midi learn with traktor or something similar ? Just to narrow down if its a driver issue or purely Ableton thats the problem.

    If you can use the devices on another piece of software then re-installing Ableton might do the trick, if not then it might be a driver issue or conflict.
