Author Topic: Configure pads and knobs to play notes in VSTs in Ableton?  (Read 50 times)

Hi all,

Please, how do I set Beatstep to play instruments and VSTs in Ableton Live?

Basically, I just want to use the pads to play notes on VSTs and record them to Ableton Live. The thing you would do easilly using a generic midi keyboard.

Instead, I play the pads and my Beatstep launches clips in Ableton.

I can find a way around this problem disabling beatstep as a midi controller in Midi options. But then I cannot latch the knobs to VST's controls.

All in all, I want to play notes in a VST synth AND custom assign the knobs to controls in that VST synth.

Maybe this could sound silly for hardcore users, but I'd be very grateful if you could help me here, it's driving me nuts.

Thanks so much in advance,
