    Default S4+Ableton

    Hi all I am trying to use my S4 in ableton. I want to try "smart mixing" but the only controller I currently own is the S4. [ame="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33868898@N06/5432317493/"]traktor | Flickr - Photo Sharing!@@AMEPARAM@@http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5176/5432317493_0223d39668_m.jpg@@AMEPARAM@@5432317493@ @AMEPARAM@@0223d39668[/ame] this is an image of how I have it configured. Ableton isn't reading my S4 (yellow icon isn't glowing). I am pretty sure I understand how to map it, go to map mode and select a parameter and then move crossfader/knob/etc..but why isn't ableton recognizing my S4. I am sure it is a setting issue but I just got ableton today so I'm lost..


    thanks
    shawn

    p.s i searched the forums/google.

    utorrent is a legal program which can be used in illegal ways...


    "How is money legal? I can pay for under-age prostitute.", "How is a knife legal? I can kill someone with it!"


    also, i pretty much get power point, word, etc free through my university.

    besides, this is off topic lol
