MIDI mapping in Live (Multi-Channel Mapping?)
I apologize if this has an easy answer such as "No" but I've been researching this question for the past 2 hours with no avail. I'm pretty new to Live.
Is it possible to have multiple channels for a MIDI controller that would allow me to assign multiple clips from the same key or pad? For example, say I'm setting up a live set as a set list for a live performance I'm doing. I have all my loop clips loaded in for each song, now I need to map out the MIDI controller to trigger the clips, but I have way more clips than keys on the controller. Having a separate channel for each song would be the way to go I'd say, but is that possible?
Would it be a device specific issue or something I could do in ableton? If there isn't some way to do this, what else could I possibly do as far as assigning clips?
I suppose I could have each song as a separate live set, but there would be silence between each song while the live set loads up, so that's not really an option. I'm not entirely sure of the most proficient way to play entire live sets in Live.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
