Shortcut to quickly open the "Drum Rack" Ableton 11

Post by Jonatan King » Wed Sep 21, 2022 1:46 pm

Hello! I'm working a lot with instrumentals of pop/hiphop lately, and I find myself in the situation where I open many channels with individual drum racks (for more control in the mix).

I am noticing that my workflow could be more optimal if I find a way to quickly load a drumrack into a midi channel with a shortcut (or some other way), instead of searching the plugin on the instruments tab.

Is there a possibility to do that?

Thank you!

Loader is literally the best m4l device ever.
just wanted to add a little workflow tip: make a specific folder for Loader with your shortcut presets. adv adg amxd or AU/VST3 presets -VST2s have to be racked- so you don't accidentally change the path to a preset or delete it.

Hey!
I just bought it but it doesn't let me add a Drum Rack, just audio effects

The solution is in the user guide: you need to drag a device's default preset (or any preset) ".adg" file into LoadeR, not the Drum Rack device itself
