I am struggling a little. When I use bome with ableton 10 lite it reds out the mackie setting on pacer pedal. Switch off bome and everything works fine.
The pacer pedal seems like an albatross with ableton. I know I am probably pressing a wrong button but any suggestions.
below is image if that helps.
My guess is that you are trying to open the Pacer in both Bome MIDI Translator Pro and in Ableton Live. On Windows only on application can open a given MIDI port at a time.
For anything you want to control with Bome MIDI Translator Pro (like translations before going to Ableton Live), you will need to open the Pacer Ports only with Bome MIDI Translator and then route the messages (via translators or static routing) to Bome Virtual MIDI Ports (ie BMT 1, BMT 2 etc). Then in Ableton Live use the virtual ports instead of trying to open the Pacer ports directly.
Pacer → MT Pro with routing or translators → BMT 1 → Live
Pacer Port 2 → MT Pro with routing or translators → BMT 2 - Live
Live → BMT 1 → MT Pro with routing or translators → Pacer
Live → BMT 2 → MT Pro with routing or translators → Pacer Port 2
