Akai APC Mini connecting to Daslight

Postby cmaddox » Tue Jul 16, 2019 9:44 pm

I am having trouble connecting the APC Mini to Daslight software for use as a MIDI controller for DMX lighting. In the tutorial videos it shows that the software will recognize the MIDI automatically, however mine does not. I have no desire to use Ableton Live for music purposes, so I would like to be able to go without it on my computer, but I have installed it for now. Does Ableton Live have to be synched? Does Ableton have to be on at all? Is there a process I am missing to get the Daslight software to recognize the MIDI controller?

I am not getting the option to select the APC mini. That is the entire problem.

Matter of licencies for MIDI.
You need full licence on your interface to be able to use Midi

Sorry for the question. So is it not necessary to install the AKAI APC MINI software to make the midi interface work with daslight 4? or do I have to install Ableton live anyway?
Thanks

Hello,

I believe the console should work with Daslight4 without having to install any extra software.
