Specifying a Note with Simpler

Post by thopunk » Fri May 09, 2008 10:57 pm

I have Ableton 5.2 and I am trying to get Simpler to play different sounds triggered by a Behringer FCB1010 controller. I cant figure out how to specify which note will trigger the Simpler. i have to have several simplers to play different sounds. I have Sampler set up on my laptop, but I have version 6 there, only version 5 on the studio computer. Thanks.

That is correct. If I understand correctly, you aren't doing anything wrong.

Simplers only hold one sound, except for newer specially packed ones from Ableton only..

No racks before Live 6, right?

You're stuck using multiple tracks then, I think.

i can't think of any neat hacks to do that pre live 6 either.

(though, personally, if you want a good sampler, i'd look at something else. i use the ableton samplers a fair bit for simpler stuff, i love how quick and easy they are, but if you're sampling a lot take a look at kontakt)
