How to set up the Roland A-PRO keyboard for use with Live?
- Live Versions: Live 9.2
- Operating System: All
Live comes with an Ableton Live Control Map for the Roland A-PRO keyboard. In order to use the Roland A-PRO Remote Script, you will need to install this Control Map on the keyboard once.
To do so, please follow these steps:
- Start Live
- Connect the Roland A-PRO keyboard
- Open Live’s Preferences from the Live menu (OSX) or the Options menu (Windows).
- Open the MIDI/Sync tab
- Make sure that “Roland A PRO” is selected as “Control Surface”, “A-PRO (A-PRO 2)” is selected as Input and “A-PRO” is selected as Output, all on one line.
- Click the “Dump” button to the right-hand side of that row.
- When asked to make sure that the MIDI controller is set to receive preset dumps, click “OK”.
- On the A-PRO keyboard itself, select Control Map 19 - it should now be called “Ableton Live”.
- That’s it - you’re done!
