I'm using the IAC driver to midi-connect Pure Data to Ableton. Everything works perfectly with the [noteout] module, I could play notes in Ableton instruments. Now I would also like to control other Ableton proprieties (like volume, audio effects, changing tracks) but I couldn't understand how to do that.
Somewhere on the internet I found out that the right way to do this is using [ctlout] and Ableton Midi Mapping mode, but it isn't working at all. It actually gets the signal into Ableton, but it doesn't start mapping the thing. Maybe I should use a specific syntax with the [ctlout]? I am a total beginner with the Midi protocol.
Is there any tutorial or anything on the matter? I've been looking for this on the internet for two days, but I didn't find anything useful yet.
Thank you very much in advance.
