zoom r8 pads and daw control

Post by hasoli » Tue Jan 03, 2017 7:41 am

hey people. i tried to search the forums but could not find anything.

my question is here: are the pads under the volume sliders of R8 assignable for midi control on ableton live? im able to use almost all the buttons of r8 for midi mapping but not the pads that we normally use for the drums.

i have no problem with drivers and im able to use midi mapping and audio signal in/out functions.

thanks for the replies in advance.

I've often wondered why they didn't implement the pads for DAW control, as well. I use Logic Pro X and it has some great custom midi mapping tools but those pads aren't even listed as mapable! ugh. It's really too bad! Plus, on the Mac, there are no drivers, it just uses the Mac OS X built in MIDI and Mackie Protocols.
