Setting up Ableton for Locators

Post by Rednyc » Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:49 am

Hi, I’m Jon. I have a KMI SoftStep 2 and am currently trying to set up a set list in arrangement view with 2-4 songs that have locators on them for verses, choruses, bridge, etc. How do I go about setting the SoftStep 2 to trigger whatever’s locator I set to the 10 pads? And to switch to the next song, or even skip to the one after, can I set up banks for this? How would I go about doing that? Any help would be appreciated.

From 6.3 Launching the Arrangement with Locators in the manual:
You can recall (jump to) locators by clicking on them, or with the Previous and Next Locator buttons below the Set button. Locators can also be recalled using MIDI/key mapping (see Chapter 27).
