Did you follow these instructions?
You may want to double check where the MIDI prefs file was installed. It should be in:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Native Instruments\Guitar Rig 5\Controller Assignments.shm
You'll also need to make sure that the controller is active in Guitar Rig standalone version. Go to "Audio and MIDI Settings" - I'm not sure which menu it's in on Windows. On mac, it's under the File menu. Make sure the Bluetooth controller or Guitar Wing is enabled like in this picture: http://i.imgur.com/9SLMieg.png
That's for Guitar Rig standalone app. If you want to control it in Abelton, you'll need to load Guitar Rig as a VST in Live, then map the different controls to Ableton Macros, then you can map those using MIDI Learn in Live if you want.
Also, you can use a MIDI Monitor program like:
Just to double check that hte guitar wing is sending MIDI to your computer.
Hope that helps,
Ok, please have a look at the pictures in that share:
If I plug my two Brain2's (let's call them "X" and "Y") in the following scenarios happen:
The screenshots are taken from MidiOx but the same is true for Ableton Live (beside that Live adds a #n with n = 2,3,4... for device duplicates, but that doesn't help identifying the right one).
EDIT, followup: I just double checked the behaviour of MidiOx/Live by writing a simple miditest two-liner in C# and having a direct look at the Win32.MIDIIN caps. As expected they are the same as well if both devices are plugged in (https://www.dropbox.com/s/gjhqusmgec3pdrz/midiin_caps.png?dl=0). Therefore there is no way for the software side to distinguish between the devices.
I've been having much trouble - on mac - with these so far.
Hey there jsalmont,
