Fader control for multi-output Ableton set

I'm struggling to find a way of controlling multiple outputs (audio channels acting as busses) and their respective faders with midi maps. I've just started running 8 channels, previously it was easy to set the Looptimus exp. controller to take charge of the master channel fader but now I'm using 8 channels, it's proving more difficult. I've tried grouping the channels but as their outputs are set to ext. outs, they bypass any group settings/faders. My only other thoughts include an external instrument, a side chain or some form of insert but these feel both far-fetched and hacky :) Any ideas would be great! Trys

You can set your exp. controller to control multiple faders using MIDI map mode. Be sure to set the max values to 0 db (unless you are really wanting +6 db).

Wow. I can't believe I didn't check that! I just assumed you couldn't assign an exp multiple times in the way you can't assign a footswitch multiple times. Thanks Dennis! Trys
