Single set of macros controlling different 'levels'...?

Post by drissa » Sun Sep 11, 2011 4:40 pm

Apologies if this has been covered - not really sure what search criteria to use.

I'm using a loop and exploring the 'slice to midi' feature. This gives me a default drum rack, with macros linked to various Simpler functions.

Question 1: Can I easily 'initialise' these macros and relink them (rather than manually unlinking everything on each)?

Question 2: I can add global effects outside of this device. But I can't use the same macro controls (mentioned before) to control effects parameters...is there a workaround?

I think the key might be some kind of nesting, mentioned at the end of this article...

...but I'm not quite sure how to interpret it.

I guess my aim is to create a single set of macros which controls the parameters of multiple devices. Doable?

Any advice would be appreciated.
