How to sync SR18 Drum Machine with LIVE?

I have two Alesis drum machines, the SR16 and SR18.

Can Live trigger (through midi) the sounds and patterns I've created in either them? I want the patterns for the intro, verse, chorus, etc in the drum machines to sync with the clips I've created in Live. Can you tell me how to do this?

Could I use a foot controller to trigger specific clips with the correct drum patterns in the drum machines?


Thanks for your help.

    Maybe you can use program changes in the different midi clips? The clips should be able to tell your hardware what parts to play. There are some tutorial videos available online.
