Can't use multiple Launchpads on Live 8

I see all kinds of videos showing that you can use multiple Launchpads on Live but nothing showing how to do it.

When I install both of my launchpads and both are setup in Live 8 but it will either let me use one or the other but not both at once. How can I use more than one launchpad?

 I am using Live 8 on a Windows PC.

Are they getting enough power?

I'm not sure. It has a 500w power supply and other than the system itself, all that's plugged in is a powered USB hub with 2 Launchpad-S and an APC40 attached.

Hi Kender42,

You should be able to set up to 6 individual Launchpads because of the 6 Control Surface options. Within Ableton, a launchpad needs to be selected in the control surface for each one connected. The input and output will be selected to represent the individual Launchpads (it will show different Launchpad options when multiple ones are connected). Both Launchpads must be set up the same in the MIDI Port options (Track and Remote On for both the inputs and outputs). After everything is setup in the Preferences, both should be alble to use and will show different color grids when looking at the clips.

If you are still having difficulties setting up multiple Launchpads, feel free to contact us through the following link:
