Assign Pads to always trigger drum channel

Hi, is there a way to have the CMC PD Pads always assigned to a single drum track rather than triggering the current selected track? I would think I can somehow assign the PD to channel 16 for example and have input as channel 16 on drum tracks? So no matter what track is the current highlighted active track I can hit the pads and hears the drums.



You can use it as common MIDI Device. So, extract the CMC PD from “All MIDI Inputs” in Devices > Device Setup > MIDI Port Setup. Then set the CMC PD as a dedicated Input (instead of “All MIDI In”) of the MIDI track, which should be controlled by CMC PD. Now, the track is controlled from CMC PD, and all other tracks are not affected.
