Has Anyone Figure Out How to Control Ableton Live When It's Rewired in Studio One?

Using ATOM SQ with Studio One OR Ableton Live...no problem. But I can't figure out how to disassociate ATOM SQ from Studio One and shift it over to control Ableton Live when it's rewired in Studio One. As far as I can tell, it's not possible. Anyone?

Are you using Live 10?

Yes, and it's the latest version, so it lists ATOM SQ as a controller. There's no problem controlling Live by itself, only when rewired. It seems as soon as I connect the ATOM SQ to Studio One, Studio One takes control. I can't figure out how to "decouple" Studio One so that Live can take control instead.

Okay, I figured it out, so I'll write it up as the Friday Tip that will publish in the PreSonus blog on October 2. ATOM SQ works very well as an Ableton controller when rewired, once you know a few important setup aspects to prevent MIDI conflicts between Studio One and Ableton Live.

I also found out that even when used in Studio One's native mode, you can still trigger clips and scenes in Live when it's rewired in Studio One by using the QWERTY keyboard keys when Live has the focus. Otherwise when Studio One has the focus, the QWERTY keys do the usual keyboard shortcuts...fun stuff.

Sorry - change of plans, the post will be published on November 6 to take advantage of there being more SQs out in the world by then. If anyone can't wait, I can give the short form description of how to do it here.
