    1) there are tutorials in Ableton on how to set up audio devices
    2) there are tutorials in Ableton on how to set up MIDI devices
    3) if you are routing your audio to the djm 800 via 4 channels on the audio 8 then you won't need a mapping for it unless you are going to use it as a MIDI controller too

    Your APC40 is specifically for Ableton and comes with mappings and drivers and instructions for it? Follow the tutorials, set up your devices and back to us with any specific problems.

    I hated my APC40 until I put this bad boy on it!

    I have the earlier version using Bomes and the Lucifer VST. The guy also has a Vimeo channel explaining different ideas on making your APC40 rock.

    For you the routing would be simple
    audio = macbook USB > Audio 8 > DJM800
    and use the APC40 as your controller.

    The DJM800 could save you CPU usage etc but wouldn't be necessary.

    Get Hanz Petrovs remote scripts for the APC40, these GREATLY expand the useability (?) and functionality of the APC. I just got the latest update last night, cant wait to get my hands dirty after work today.
