Title: How to stop Keyboard control Ableton while playing
Post by: Citrixx on December 22, 2019, 06:14:34 pm
Hi,
how can I stop sending MIDI commands from my KEYLAB61 mk II to my DAW Ableton while playing an instrument - e.g. by playing pressing key "D4" changes
between arrangement-view and session-view, so that key is dead because its occupied by that command!?! Whats the clue to turn off that behaviour while playing?
Is it to change in Ableton or do i have to change it directly at the keyboard?
Thanx

Hi and welcome to Arturia forums.

I don't think this has to do with Keylab at all. It sounds like you have assigned a note to control something in Ableton Live.
Does it happen in a new empty song/ project?

Hi,

I just bought a brand new keylab MK2 61. put the latest firmware.
When using the synth in standalone without live everything is working fine. When using VST into Live 10.1 then I have 2 zones on my keyboard which are assigned to function out of the vst such D4 : switching view/scene and not playing notes from my VST.
it seems that mapping of the keylab in live is incorrect.

Cheers

Can you in Ableton live's mapping browser see the midi note is assigned to the function you see happening?
If so, then unassign that.

This is how Keylab MKII is mapped: https://www.arturia.com/faq/utilization/ableton-live-control-surface-mappings
This is a Ableton article: https://www.ableton.com/en/manual/midi-and-key-remote-control/

I don't have a Keylab MKII or Ableton, but i would believe the answer to the behavior you see is, that the note in question is assigned to that behavior, and is explained in the above.
