How do I save a clip, so it can be triggered under user 1 mode on my launch pad?

I have edited a pice of audio, and now I want to trigger it as a midi clip instead of audio. How do I save it, or what do I do now to convert it Roa midi clip?

    What do you mean exactly? If you edited your audio clip, I'm guessing that you don't want to turn it into midi information, because then you no longer have sound. Just midi notes. I think there is some software available online to turn audio into midi.

    So, do you want to turn audio into midi notes? Or do you want to be able to play your audio clip by pressing the launchpad?

    The launchpad can trigger clips in ableton's session view, so simply push the button for the slot with that particular clip to make it play.

    In session view, I can't trigger the note exactly when I want it to come in. I always have to wait for the next downbeat. In user 1 mode, it plays when I push it, no matter if it's on a downbeat or not. I have seen videos of people playing clips of songs in user mode, creating their own remix of the song.

    In the Clip launch settings, to be exact: default is 'trigger', but there are several other modes. After changing it, don't forget to save the settings in your clips.

    Try the different options to see what works best for you. Don't have Live at my disposal now. But there is a lot of info about that on the web.

    In case anyone comes across this, the way I have achieved this is to add a drum rack to a midi track and then drag audio clips onto the pads from the library, then they can be used in user mode.

    Not sure if that's it's intended use but it worked for me.
