    If you want to use Maschine as a normal Midi Controller to fire Drum Racks and use Ableton Instruments, download the following file:

    Ableton_Maschine.zip - 0.00MB

    1-Load the 'Ableton Midi File' in to Maschine trough the Controller Editor
    2-Copy the 'User Configuration' file in to the User Configurations Folder in Ableton Live
    3-Start Ableton Live and Choose: Preferences...Midi Sync...Select:Machine DrumRack from the Drop down Menu and choose 'Maschine Controller' Input and Output - Activate The Remote Midi Port

    Now you can control Drum Racks and Ableton Instruments !
    Groups trigger notes cromatically and the 8 knobs are instantenely mapped to the 8 ableton macros.

    hmmm , is this for pc or mac ?
    @ isortec , normally the ctrl surface folder (this case : maschine drum rack) is supposed to be copied to ...live 8/resources / midi remote scripts..... at least if this is a pc version ....+ im on old school xp
    gonna try tmr, btw are the macros mapped for all ableton devices like effects as well ?

    So this will "auto-map" to any 8 macros in focus, or only those associated with the DrumRacks instrument rack? Should work either way, no?

    i discovered now the fragmented template. It's really good because it maps knobs also to volumes, sends, etc. But i had to change the pads midi channel (from 1 to 2) to make them work in ableton. I think the first channel is used from the script to trigger clips with the automap.

    Actually, the fragmented script uses the pads for Live's Drum Rack. Group A's pads are always mapped to whichever 16 pads are in focus in drum rack. The other Groups go chromatically up always with C on pad one.
