Automating Ableton Live native instruments from Synfire

This no longer seems possible with Ableton Live 9. You can use Synfire to send midi cc to ableton and use an instrument's midi learn to map the controller but the native instruments (all rack controls, operator, etc) do not work. They only seem to respond to midi cc sent from a real midi controller.

Cool Ableton routing tips

1. If you want to take advantage of Ableton's instruments or if you want to rack plugins in Ableton, put a drone on a different track. On your track with said plugins, in the MIDI From box, choose the drone. Here you get the tight sync with Synfire, plus the ability to use racks and Ableton's instruments.

2. You can put all of your drones inside of one rack, so you only need one track for Synfire's drones. The other tracks can still receive MIDI from specific drones.

 

This seems to work fine for me. We just need the Ableton muting issue fixed, and we'll be set!
