Re: Best way to run Live with the Novation SL mk2

well I hope that this is a technical hurdle and not some kind of financial dispute between the two companies (if they do that?) as it would be a shame not being able to push the potential to fully fuse these two excellently crafted tools.

Merging live sets?

Ive created a few 7 minute live set projects.. I want to combine them to make a full 45 minute set. Is it possible to open and close different sets as to be able to merge them into one without breaking the soundstream?

Thanks. :oops:

Some will be your 'crates', you can title them something appropriate for you, depending on how you classify your music, like hard techno, etc. Use eq8 or some eq plugin you like assigned to your control...
