MOTU Midi Express 128 - Has issues, but good design

Other Equipment and Reviews - homerecording.com
I am using this with a Windows 10 Dell XPS touchscreen.

DAW: Ableton 9.5, Cubase Essentials, and Stagelight.

Old school midi gear: Oberheim MC-3000, Roland D-550, JV-2080, JP-8080, JD-800, VSynth, VR-760, Novation Supernova, Moog Little Phatty 1, DSI Prophet 08pe.

Initially, I've had no problems with this unit, until I began using Ableton. Live doesn't seem to want to recognize the drivers for it. When it does, it lists them in a way that they can't be edited. I think there needs to be new drivers written for this, as I am using the current driver set. It's possible there is no driver set for win 10 yet.

Working with it in cubase is great though. Only issue is that it doesn't seem to want to allow sys ex commands to data transfer some older gear like the D-550.

The express replaced a Yamaha UX 250, and it would be lovely if I could use both, but the drivers seem to conflict.
