Switch between Ableton Live channels with M9

Recommended Posts



I am trying to implement a channel change in Ableton Live 9.5 with M9, i.e to make M9 send some MIDI program change or another message that will switch between the channels. I tried using the MIDI mapper to assign Scene Change mesages from M9 to the Session Recording buttons (works perfectly with KEY mapping and a normal computer keyboard). However all I'm getting is a weird mapping interpreted as Pitchbend messages (see attached image). When trying it out nothing really happens.


In the M9 Advanced Manual there is a MIDI map for scene select in Appendix A but I can't say I understand it:


Scene Select 

Memory Location

Program Change #

Scene Selected

Scene 1A (Fldr 1; 3)

0 (Fldr 1); 12 (Fldr 3)

1A (Fldr 1); 1A (Fldr 3)

Scene 1B (Fldr 1; 3)

1 (Fldr 1); 13 (Fldr 3)

1B (Fldr 1); 1B (Fldr 3)

Scene 2A (Fldr 1; 3)

2 (Fldr 1); 14 (Fldr 3) 

2A (Fldr 1); 2A (Fldr 3)


Any suggestions how to go on about this?
