Decided to get Ableton and try some stuff. So far so good, I am really feeling how much like Reason this one is in particular and will keep this one in for rewire.

Is there a way to map midi devices to midi tracks in live or do I simply do the other workarounds involving the External midi module from either live or reason and call it a day when it comes to those if not gonna be clicking in the automation curves & points using the mouse?
