Frequently Asked Question and How To Max for Live:


With the Convert Midi Devices Pack you can now easily convert any type of the three primary MIDI message types. If you are using Ableton Live for performing, producing, sound designing, or almost any situation, you’re probably using midi. Perhaps you use a midi controller for remote mapping the Ableton Live Set. Or you send midi to your outboard gear like synthesizers and drum machines. Maybe you’re totally “in the box” and routing midi clip notes and automation around your Live Set. You may even route midi in and out of other programs on your computer or network.

Convert midi notes into midi CC values.

Convert MIDI notes to MIDI continuous control messages.

The ability to easily turn midi notes into midi CCs can open up a lot of expressive capabilities as well as /techniques that can help you program an even smoother performance.

Examples on changing MIDI Notes to Program Changes

If you set note C3 to send program change 27, and you put note C3 on bar 17, the synth will change presets after 16 bars. This makes it MUCH easier to sequence out the program changes for a piece of hardware or plug-in through the course of a song or entire show!

•Use one CC but different values of that CC to sequence program changes.

EXAMPLE: To make different values of CC 1 trigger different program changes, set the device up like this:
Here are a few examples of how you can use this to expand your Ableton Sets.

•Turn a controller that only sends midi notes into CCs that can be mapped or sent out to hardware or other software. Enable the controller for track inoutand then set the track output to the destination that needs to receive the CCs

•If you have a piece of hardware that can receive CCs to modulate or change parameters, set it as the destination for track output. You can use midi notes coming into that track from an input (or from notes in midi clips) to activate specific CC values to change the hardware’s parameters when specific notes play.

EXAMPLE: If your synth’s cutoff is controlled by CC 4, and you want note A1 to turn the cutoff to 50% (value 64 in midi speak), you would set up the device like so.
