Setup Akai MPD24 with Ardour

Hi, I have just been recommended Ardour and am very impressed with it. I was wondering if anyone knows how i should go about setting up an MPD24 it?

Many thanks


I believe there is no way to directly drive MIDI in Ardour… yet…

I use hydrogen with my padKontrol to play drums, currently you can sync ardour to it and play, and ardour will record the resulting audio.


There actually might be a way.
The MPD24 uses MMC.
If you study the SYNC pages of the Ardour manual and the MPD24’s manual, you might get it to work.

In the Ardour manual, look closely at the info on setting up the other control surfaces. The MPD24 is essentially a simpler version of those.
