nope, you're missing something important here!
you record those fruity notes into Live session clips to integrate the pattern triggering of both apps into one interface.
Then you can trigger Fruity patterns and groups of patterns from Live.
Why is that better?
Imagine a project where in fruity you have
pattern1 : kick and snare,
Pattern 2: hi hats
pattern 3: other hi hats
pattern 5 : extra snares
pattern 6 : congas.
Now, you may
like to flip over from Live to Fruity to use the live mode over there to trigger those patterns alongide you Live song - but that's a bit weird and disjointed, using one
interface for triggering patterns would be better!
Also in fruity - for live/messing about, you couldn't make a 'meta-group' of patterns for easy triggering. EG (for the above patterns) record the notes that trigger them into Live Session Clips.
group 1 : patterns 1& 2 (play C and D into a clip and call it 'kick snare & hats)
group 2 : patterns 1& 2 & 3 & 4 (play C, D,E,F into a clip and call it 'main Drums')
group 3 : patterns 1 & 6 (play C&A into a clip and call it 'breakdown')
to trigger those consistently in fruity while flipping back and forth from Live session triggering, then going to Fruity pattern roll to trigger fruit stuff over there. Aaaargh - not fun or editable in one environment for arranging.
BUT - if you record the keyboard notes assigned to the 6 patterns above into Live session clips like this
clip 1 : patterns 1& 2
clip 2 : patterns 1& 2 & 3 & 4
clip 3 : patterns 1 & 6
you can remain in Live and still trigger the Fruity patterns from the session clip interface, but additionally you can trigger them as groups (or separately if you need)
If you really like to edit your arrangements in two different applications with two different timelines running side by side - feel free!
but Live has an 'Arrangement page' which records what I trigger in session and this means you can arrange all your Fruity patterns(and meta-patterns) there ...
By keeping it in Live you can flip the arrangement in to jam those fruity patterns around in Session mode, make mistakes and edit it up in Arrangement. waaaay easier, more flexible - and more integrated than two apps side by side runnign two timelines with different parts of the song in my experience.
try it anyway - It will take me forever to explain how it is loads better.
once you have 10 Clips in session marked:
"fruity basic beat"
"fruity harder beat"
and you have triggered them in live alongside your other live stuff .... that's when you wil get it!
