    This is actually an issue with Ableton Live and it is not specific to Microtonic. The popup you have open in your screenshot is the "MIDI From" menu where you choose which MIDI channel Ableton listens too. Unfortunately it then sends MIDI to Microtonic on channel 1 regardless of the input channel.

    (This is probably because MIDI tracks in Live do not record and store MIDI channel info with the note data.)

    One way to work around this is to set up MIDI tracks for each and every MIDI channel you want Microtonic to listen to and bridge using MIDI to MIDI. Like this:

    Hi Chao. I have ableton 10 and this definitely isn't working for me. Had to do the above suggestion from Magnus. Are you able to show me how you've done it?
