Ableton & SPD-S as midi controller for full live set

Hi guys!

For my live set as a drummer I need to use my SPD-SX as a midi controller because the inbuilt wave modus in the SPD is not that powerfull.
At the moment i have for every song a new Live session for the 9 pads en triggers.

Is there a way to have all my sounds (backingtracks, clicks, samples & loops) in one session so I just need to go to the next scene or something?


Thanks in advance

Hey - I made a few M4L patches for some more advanced features regarding controlling Ableton Live with the SPD-SX and vice versa - one is here for example:

But to respond to your specific question: Yes you can do this just like you said.
e.g. having one scene with the whole song (backings, loops etc) all rendered to the same length in one scene - you could set up sound changes for drumrack this way with Midi dummy clips as well. Tempo changes just by putting in "xxxBPM" in the scene name (e.g. for 120 put in "120bom") and then master will be set to this temp once firing this scene.

make sense? Cheers Tobi
