Quoted from the old Forum..

Quote from: Trevor Refix
Set your remote pad in channel on the Tempest to the same channel as your ableton drum rack and assign the notes per pad in the Tempest global settings to match the drum rack assignments. Or vice versa, whatever is easier. There might be a one or  octave offset between Ableton and Tempest, can't recall, just try it out.

Hello everyone,
Iīm having problems with sequencing Tempest via Ableton live as well and I hope you can save me from going crazy!

I have a hybrite set up, using the six voices outputs going to a mixer which works well. At first I used Tempestīs sequencer synced with Ableton. Anyway...

What I want now, is using Abletons drum rack with external instruments to trigger Tempestīs pads.
Ableton is sending out the midi notes but Tempest doesnīt seem to receive them..... though when I trigger the pads manually I hear the sounds.

Maybe this has to do with something already mentioned above and I donīt get it.
Iīve been trying around a lot already..... Now I hope, you can help me!!!
Thanks a lot!
