    Just got an QU-24 and just love it!

    I have problems setting up the MMC soft key controls, though. Installed the daw control panel for OSX and midi monitor shows that SYSEX is incoming from button press. Set Ableton live midi preferences to Mackie control and set the options in my opinion right, but still, I cannot get Ableton Live to respond to it.

    Anyone else got it working? Thanks in advance!

    @lukree Hi Lukree, I have set it up here and it all works great!

    Here’s what I did:
    Set up SoftKeys to MMC controls – on the mixer go to SETUP > CONTROL > SOFTKEYS, select SoftKey, select MMC from Function dropdown list, touch the assign box and change to the MMC message required.

    Run the A&H DAW Control app on your Mac.

    In Live’s MIDI Preferences select MackieControl as the control surface and DAW Control MIDI 1 for the Input and Output.

    You don’t need to select on/off for any of the device ports in the track/sync/remote.

    Hey, presto!

    Let me know if you’re still having problems.

    Thanks for your reply, but no, still cannot get it working even when trying exactly as you wrote.

    Still midi monitor shows incoming command and a&H Daw control app shows on bottom part that it’s receiving something when I press a button from the mixer… Strange.
