From what i've read it seems like the APC40 goes beyond just a basic midi controller in terms of the intuitive way that it interacts with Ableton. Therefore, it's possible that the software is locked in certain ways rendering it unable to work well with outside programs. Max for Live is probably the only real solution to use it for other programs. I wouldn't worry too much though because someone will probably write a patch to allow for really, really cool things in the future. It was a great investment! Sometimes you just have to wait a bit for everyone to figure out how to really utilize it though. Max for Live isn't free but if you have Live8 it's probably worth the investment. You can also try contacting Ableton and they may have a solution for you. They have fairly decent customer support from what i've heard. Good luck.
