probably you had the drum track selected when you opened nexus so it replaced

you should be able to ctrl + z and the drums should come back

make a new midi track and then make sure it is selected blue then open nexus

i do this alot myself

you just make new track again and load the vst you will use

you should take the time one day to make blank sets with instruments and drums and fx sends you use the most loaded already

i think it saves alot of time

no you cant see at the same time

but you can go in arrangment view though and zoom close and you see visual feedback where your notes are going compared to the drum track still and it is kind of the same just not directly in the piano roll

You can drag any number of .alp files from your OS filebrowser onto your Live window.

Ableton and Partners' packs will install automatically.

Packs from third parties will ask you where to unpack.

this

But to expound a little more on it... multiple packs will install back to back. so just drag and drop them all in together instead of one at a time. I believe you can select them all and then right click > open to achieve the same.

Ah great cheers guys I didn't know I could do that, I originally thought if I double clicked a few files together id get loads of windows open and things would slow down
