Assigning macros to siblings
If you’ve ever attempted to assign macro knobs to all the samples in Ableton’s Drum Racks or Sampler, you know that assigning 8 parameters to each or your 100 or so samples, you know that this is easily a full day of torturous & tedious work. This is a tip you’re most certainly going to want to share. You’ll be an instant lifesaver!
Today you will learn how to do a day’s work in minutes with a simple right click option that is not currently available in Ableton. Watch the video below & download the file if you need it.
You can located the .txt file at the paths below:
Mac OS X: /User/Library/Preferences/Ableton/Live 8.*.* (whichever version you have)
Windows Vista/Win7: c:/users/username/appdata/roaming/ableton/live/preferences/
Windows XP & previous(Live 4 and later versions): C:/Documents and Settings/yourusername/Application Data/Ableton/Live/Preferences
Right Click and download the text file below
