I'm using the MPD 218 with Ableton. I have an electric bass instrument loaded and can play the notes as they are assigned by default by the controller. I wish to assign them to a different set of pads in a specific order. In the editor I can drop and drag the pads to where I want them to be but I can't figure out how to load this to the MPD 218.
I saved the assignments as a preset and then pressed "Send to Hardware" but nothing changes. I am editing and using the correct bank (C). The window of the editor indicates the pad I want to assign the midi information to has that information. Some simple thing I'm not doing?

Thanks in advance,
