launch control xl questions

apologies if this is the wrong forum - i couldnt find one specific to the launch control xl

1. im just seeing if it is currently possible to track focus on the return and master channels from the xl? the idea being to then manipulate the devices within each return (and master) track.


2. is there likely to be an update where the xl acts as a "slave" to the launchpads" redbox? i.e. will they be able to communicate with each other.


thank you

I have the same question is there no way to control the faders of return tracks in abelton, useing factory template 1? There seems to be no way to track focus or bank over to them. It would be very useful if you could without haveing to switch over to a user template every time you wanted to.

You can set up launch control xl to do everything you need in ableton, just set up two or more user banks for the functions you need.
