  • Hey Pedro,

    Thanks for posting!

    It is possible to trigger a Drum Rack in Ableton using the MPC Element. To do this you will need to have the MPC Essentials plugin installed and scanned into Ableton's VST library.

    Open Ableton and create 2 MIDI tracks. Load the MPC Essentials VST on one and a Drum Rack on the other. Set both MIDI track's Monitor to In. Open the MPC Essentials GUI and select MIDI Control mode.



    When you connect the Element the Essentials screen will populate with an Editor for the hardware. Starting with pad 1, change the note value to C1. Pad 2 will be C#1 and so on chromatically throughout the 8 banks.

    Back in Ableton record enable the MIDI track with your Drum Rack and select All Ins under MIDI In. The Element's pads should now correspond directly with the Drum Rack.

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
