apc 20 and novation launchpad not working separately

i have an apc 20 and the novation launchpad, i want to use the apc to launch clips and control volume, and the launchpad to act as a drum rack, or step sequencer, how can i achieve this?

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. I'd be happy to help!

    You'll want to get more definitive information about the Launchpad from Novation but I believe it will, like the APCs, have one or more "User" modes which disengage it from the Ableton default remote map.

    Basically, keep the APC20 as it defaults, launching clips and controlling mixer functions. Put the Launchpad in the user mode and use the Ableton MIDI Learn mode to assign whichever buttons to pads in the drum rack.

    Let me know if this helps!
