I'm pretty new here, a couple of months ago I purchased my first Livid controller, an Alias8, which I use with Ableton live 9.
I basically did a mapping for clip launching and fx toggles on buttons, faders and knobs and everything is fine with the functionality of the preset but I have a problem with button led colors.
Since the Alias 8 has only 16 buttons I set different led colors for their different functions (ex. play=magenta, stop=red, scoll up / down=light blue and so on) using the online editor and saved it to the onboard memory of the Alias using the "save to device" button.
My problem is that when I restart the laptop and then the liveset on which I've mapped the controller, Live seems to send a sort of "reset" message and I have to redo the led setting from the editor or load a preset from file...which is a pretty long procedure before live shows since I have a lot of other stuff to set up. This only affects the led colors.
If I load the Alias preset and then the liveset without restarting the laptop though, everything seems good...
Sorry for the tricky explanation...any help? am I doing something wrong?
My setup is:
MacBook pro running OSX 10.7
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2
Ableton Live 9
