Fruity Loop Studio settings
In order to use correctly the transports functions (play/rec/stop/forward/rewind), EMC use the Tascam US-428 settings.
So you just have to set the midi input in FL Studio to Tascam US-428 in order to directly map your midi settings.
Here is the midi setting to use :

Here is midi settings to use (you must launch Ableton Live only once EMCDesktop has been launched) :
EMC is not only intended to be used for sending Midi signals but even for interpreting input Midi signals.
Indeed, EMC pads own colors code matching the Ableton Live status :
- Brighter blue for assigned pads
- Blicking blue for arming play
- Yellow flash for each play start
Don't hesitate to send me any feedback, or ask me if you have any questions.
Hope you'll enjoy your EMC experience :)
