I was about to give up concerning the Trigger Finger problem I mentioned in my last post. I was willing to wait for a feedback from ableton (which is still unanswered) but fired up google a last time before I admit my defeat by a dumb machine.
And there it was, the solution which worked for me, as a 3rd page comment to another unrelated problem: Using an external USB-hub as adapter between PC and Trigger Finger does the trick. It’s working, now. Another piece of dumb machinery was needed to get the other one back in line 🙂
Normally, I assume that an external USB-hub is more a source of problem than a solution, but not in this case. Trigger Finger is now working fine with both types of drivers (Microsoft or m-audio). Who had guess such a solution when everybody is busy analyzing the driver? Not me. Maybe it’s a problem with USB 1 vs. 2 protocol, I don’t know and I don’t CARE!
So, new score in the match mE vs. TF = 1:1. I can start to create songs with it, going for another goal.
