I am in the process of creating an experimental liveset where I manipulate the pitch of the loops in realtime. I have mapped a knob on a MIDI controller to change the pitch of the sound, which is currently being handled via an audio effects rack for flexibility's sake.
It would be great if I could map a second MIDI control, such as a button, to the same knob to reset its position to 0. Unfortunately this seems to be much harder than I thought it would be for the following reasons:
- Live doesn't let you map multiple MIDI controllers to a single object
- Live uses the same mapping ranges for MIDI devices and the keyboard, so you can't use a keyboard key instead without screwing up the MIDI mapping for the original knob
- The audio effects rack will let you have another effects rack inside of it, but you can't map the knobs between them and assign both knobs to different MIDI controllers
- Even if I remap the MIDI button to send the same CC as the knob, Live will use the knob's mapping range, which means it won't act as a "reset" as I need it to
Is there any way to do this without having to resort to third-party software such as MidiOx? I'd really rather not have to run MIDI remapping software during my set.
