I want to use the touch strip like a modwheel in abelton live. So when Live is turned off I go in User menu of my atom sq and I select mod in touch menu. But after when i launch Live, it doesn't recognize the touch strip like a modwheel.

The touch menu has several function, so I also tried to choose CC in touch menu and CC 1 in editor menu but it doesn't work, (however I tried with CC 11 and it works).

atom sq firmware 1.10

ableton live 10.1.25

I couldn't get the workaround above to work, but did find that if I change the control surface for the ATM SQ port to None, I can use the Mod Wheel fine (albeit with the loss of Ableton Live integration).

I can't find a solution anywhere...

What I had to do was:

Use your workaround (in my case CC1 worked for me) and set channel to 2 instead of 1.
