disable clip launch on scene launch: quick and easy workarounds?
i have a bunch of clips with drum fills and samples that i want to manually trigger in session view. ideally i would like them to sit in one or more tracks and simply not launch with other clips in a scene. i am hoping to do this with an apc40 and with the mac keyboard. i thought it would be easy but i gather from other threads this feature (of setting certain clips/tracks to not auto launch with a scene) is not natively available. i have a lot of clips i want to trigger manually and i like to play with arrangements and jump around and trigger different scenes.
i’ve read and tried to implement a few possible solutions. someone suggested follow actions but they don’t work for me because whatever clip is in the scene still launches by default. and i want to have control over impulse decisions to trigger various clips rather than setting a repeating or randomly generated pattern.
removing the stop button only seems to work in a blank slot which defeats the purpose…unless i am missing something. i can put these clips in a separate scene but it means creating an unruly lot of redundant instances of the same instruments/tracks...and it’s hard to manage scrolling vertically up and down to that scene from other scenes. it’s ideal to have them close to clips on a scene i want to associate them with.
what are some of you clever people doing? this must be something that people need to regularly do and have found good workarounds for…?? please say yes….:) whether i’m missing something with the stop button or follow methods or if there is some other creative solution you’ve found i’d love to hear it. the key is something that is as quick and easy as possible to set up and use since i’ll be doing this in most of my projects with lots of different scenes, tracks and clips.
