Ableton Live Looper Control

You may find that the Ableton Looper button is not functioning the same when triggering it with your Morningstar controller as it is with a mouse click. The problem being that it cannot stay in overdub mode.

There is a simple fix for this. Just add the same CC message with value 0 triggered by a Release action below your first MIDI message as shown below (CC#5 is used for this example but you can use any CC number you want). Without it, Ableton is reading the Looper button as if it is being held down.
