Thank you, gentlemen. I don’t use Ableton so I’m not familiar with that, but I did reread those pages.
So to clarify. Let’s say I want to do a live set with stereo files. I could assign the first song to track 1 PLAY FREE, then the second song to track 2 PLAY FREE. I trigger track one, then can hit play and stop whenever I want to start and stop my sequenced patterns that will go over the track. Then near the end, I could trigger track 2 and do the same thing, while at some point using the sample browser to load up the 3rd track back on track 1. Does that make sense? Does that work?
Also, this is where I’m getting confused (from the manual pg 82): This is the default TRIG mode. When not in any RECORDING mode, [TRIG] keys 1-8 trig any disconnected audio tracks and [TRIG] 9-16 trig the machines of the eight tracks.
This makes it seem like there are 16 audio tracks in some way. Don’t the disconnected audio tracks live in the T1-T8 machines?
I also don’t understand how you could disconnect a MIDI track. Does that just mean that you can trigger the sequence to play at any point in time?
My brain is hurting trying to totally understand all this.
