I am using a 4bar 16beat pattern that I wish to change with a batch of audio clips using program change, Ableton Live in Clip View. Theres an problem I cannot overcome.
- Program Change MIDI channel is on ch16 (all working fine)
- Set up a scene with audio clips and a MIDI clip to program change to Pattern 2, PR-CH 2 in other words.
- Play scene, program change fires, change doesn’t happen until a whole 4 bars repeats.
For the moment, this makes PR-CH unusable.
All clips change, PR-CH data us sent and Digitakt is late by 4 bars, almost as though if it receives a PRCH on beat 1, but won’t actually initiate it until beat 64.
Its exactly the same if you hit play and start a scene, it wont change the Digitakt until the 4 bars in my Pattern have played once.
Even though its a work around - I don’t want to use the Ableton TRACK VIEW and position a program change 4 bars in advance, as it means I cannot jam and have to write a track.
- Is there a reason for this behaviour?
- Can I get around this?
