Ableton + Engines

Postby fucku12345 » Sun Nov 05, 2017 5:44 pm

There are so many threads on this topic which I think is kind of ridiculous it still has not been answered clearly... I am trying geist 2 out and and am not having any luck having my controller play engines 2 - 8 through ableton. After loading in a drumkit to engine 1 - 8 and routing the audio of the master mixer back to individual tracks within ableton, I still cant get engine 2 - 8 drumkits to play through the midi controller. However if I click the pads in engine 2 - 8 audio will play through the dedicated audio track within ableton as intended so the audio is being routed correctly. The problem seems to be = I cant arm any other engine besides engine 1 ? I have read the manual and do not understand where I am meant to be assigning channel 9 everything seems to be working as intended except I cant use any other engine, this is super frustrating and any help is appreciated, Cheers.

Simply put Geist2 to a midi channel in ableton.
Make an other, new midi channel with one ableton external instrument with the following settings:
On External Instrument device set "Midi to" : Your Geist 2 instrument. After that set "Midi ch" : CH9
On your external instrument channel in out settings set: "Midi From" : All Ins or Specific midi controller. After that set "Monitor" to In!

Like this open your Geist window and your controller will work with each engines.

Download the PushPack, there is also usable stuff ro non push users.

If you are like most people when they go out and buy a new Personal Computer you probably get excited when you take it out of the box, turn it on discover here and marvel at how fast it runs. When a computer is new it always seems to run faster and boot up quicker than your old computer.

I have read your problem and I want to part of it. I also had a problem with that and can't seem to know what the problem is. I also tried what you did and the same as yours. I could not see the problem myself. Any help is appreciated. Landscaping Companies Augusta GA
