Ableton drum racks with external Simmons SDS 8
Hi Ableton folks,
I have a puzzle for you:
1. A-lane with midi clips in it which correspond to what a live drummer should be playing
2. B-lane with an instrument rack. Each slice is a drum rack (one per song). I swipe through them with a chain selector.
3. A-lane sends midi to B-lane. I do it this way so A-lane can be switched off when live drummer joins in and replaces my midi clips.
4. Simmons SDS 8 module wich has no midi! It only reacts to sound impulses (such as drum hits) sent via 1/4 inch jacks. I want it to be triggered by various cells of each drum rack (kick to SDS kick, snare to SDS snare, etc.). I could have copied midi tracks and just use those with new sounds in a new lane but what happens if a live drummer wants to improvise? I want SDS to follow his creative flows in real time.
How can I route audio signal from a kick cell in B-lane to kick strip on my SDS 8 module?
