Hi there :D

I should know this,so please don't slap me,ha,ha!! But going to ask you nice people out there,anyway,just to check myself :D

I got this idea of using my Oxygen keyboard to trigger scenes in Live,is it a case of using midi mapping
to do this?
I got a selection of controllers,and have not got the cash to buy a controller just for Live (as I use my controllers for Reason too ,both together via Rewire

Cheers

I just started doing this too, intro, verse, chorus, mapped to different midi notes...

Also you can use clyphx to change the settings on various channels per scene, (like making the delay times longer in the chorus, muting the vocal channel during an instrumental section etc.) This opens up tons of possibilities for me!!!

An issue I'm having is that after I have mapped scenes to midi notes, I can no longer play those notes to program new basslines etc, because they will launch another scene. I think i will wait till all parts are programmed before doing all the midi mapping.
