How to rebuild a corrupted Ableton set

I have an Ableton set which I've been refining for several years.  It seems now that it may be corrupted since A plugin that runs with a simple set built from scratch runs perfectly, but the set in question crashes when I change presets in the plugin.

I'd like to try to save as much as I can of my set and rebuild it.  So.. I'd like to keep all clips with their settings, and as much of the midi routing, audio routing etc as possible.

Is there perhaps some easy way to essentially copy into a new set, the bones and routing of a set...keeping clips with warp settings and all other settings

Thanks,

Gabriel

    Hi Gabriel, 

    If your set is crashing, feel free to send your crash reports to our support staff: 

    https://www.ableton.com/en/help/contact-support/

    You can also try to recreate the set yourself with these steps: 

    Open an empty Live Set.

    - Locate the problematic Live Set (*.als file) in Live's browser.

    - Unfold it by clicking the little arrow on *als file - all the tracks contained in this Set are shown now.

    - Import one track of the Set via double click or drag'n'drop into the empty Live Set.

    Make sure to save after every track. 

    Hope this helps, 

    daw

    Hello Daw,

    Thanks for your help.

    I've started rebuilding the set as you suggested.  I notice that the Midi mappings for clip launches aren't brought into the set.  Is there a way to capture those, as well as audio routing?

    Thanks,

    Gabriel
