Map Akai LPD8 MIDI control interface to Ardour
I'm using an Akai LPD8 (a small 8-pad, 8 rotary knob MIDI interface) successfully with Hydrogen but I'm having trouble getting ctrl+ middle click assignments working in Ardour.
I followed the instructions here: http://ardour.org/generic_midi_control
at one point, ctrl+ middle click got the appropriate sliders assigned to the Akai's knobs. But it only worked once when I first tried it. Despite hours of effort yesterday & today I haven't managed to the ctrl+ middle click box appearing again.
I'm definitely a noob when it comes to midi; any pointers for me? I feel I may be missing sthg obvious.
Am running Ubuntu Studio, Jack & Ardour 2.8.6
