This is not strictly a hardware question but hardware related, so I hope I’m posting this in the right place.
When I try to connect the controller client (which is used to configure the controller elements on the midi keyboard) to my controller (Arturia Keylab 49 Mk. 1) it fails to connect because GP uses the device (even if I turn it off in the midi ports menu). In Ableton Live I can avoid this problem by turning off the entire audio engine which will stop using any external audio or midi driver. How do I do this in GP? Right now I have to close GP each time but since I experience very long load times for my startup gig file this is impractical.
