I have some basic doubts about ableton midi mappings, I made my own traktor mappings but never done it in ableton.
I basically need to map the clip pads on a controller (probably akai apc mini) to the launch scene buttons in ableton, and ignore or "erase" all other native mappings of the controller.
I understand that akai controllers have this "dumb midi mode" where you can assign any button/fader to any parameter but reading the ableton forum there are a lot of users who had problems using custom mappings with this controller and many of them referred to a specific software just to manage the mappings and comunication between ableton and the apc mini. But, to be fair, they were discussing super complex mappings, nothing like I need that is super simple and under the 50 commands mark for sure (no led feedback needed).
So, bottom line, my doubt is if I'm going to have any issues doing this simple mapping in ableton without any third party software and if this is one of the intended uses for the controller (since I'm going to use this setup with a live band I need it to be extremely stable).
Also, if you have any recomendation to face this mapping I would be greatfull since I'm new to this ableton-midi-world and I'm running against the clock with this. Thanks!
