I've been trying this, but it seems that if I drag MIDI clips out, I can't use the Chaos parameters (pattern/repeat/dynamics) in realtime/via clips, which is part of what I'm trying to do. I can capture it to MIDI after the fact, but I can't, say, record it in realtime.agent314 - all the RMX patterns are driven by MIDI, so rather than resampling them you can just drag the relevant MIDI pattern into a session slot - just set up a bunch of MIDI tracks in Live and have them send to the appropriate RMX MIDI channel. That way you get the launching flexibility of session view, but retain the audio flexibility that's built in to RMX.
There doesn't seem to be proper clip automation available for those controls directly, but if you MIDI-Learn them to a CC# and automate the CC in the clip, that seems to do the trick.
I'm also trying to turn on and off the different playback channels in RMX via dummy clips, but it seems you can only have VST-specific automation in MIDI clips that are actually on that track (rather than separate tracks sending their MIDI info to the VST)
I'm using two instances of RMX with 8 loops playing and effects on almost every loop, and it's only hitting 5% CPU.It can be pretty CPU intensive if you start using a lot of channels and effects in RMX, so I guess it would depend on your computer specs. Worth trying out for yourself though.
I'm hoping to be able to use it as a groovebox for live performance, so figuring out a workflow that allows on-the-fly changes to loops and patterns fairly easily (and ideally without looking at the screen) that minimizes CPU is going to be key.
