Using Push in Session mode, how can I change the color of a clip?
I'm brand new to Push and trying to figure out a good workflow.
One common series of steps I'll take in sesion mode is:
1. Find a clip I like. (Call this Clip A.)
2. Duplicate that clip. (Call the duplicate Clip B.)
3. Edit Clip B so that it's slightly different from Clip A.
4. Presto, I have two variations of the same pattern that I can select between.
One problem: Now Clip A and Clip B are exactly the same color. So I have no quick way of telling them apart. This gets worse as I create subsequent variants and duplicates, or as I create multiple scenes which involve copies of the same clip.
Advice? Does Push give me any control at all over the colors of my clips?
Bonus question: Any general advice (or links) on keeping my session view organized whilst in Push? Colors are the biggest confusion I'm having, but in general my whole clip/scene sheet ends up looking like a mess pretty quickly. In Ableton (without Push) I can simply drag-and-drop clips into a sane structure -- I tend to create one area for experimental ideas, another for my clip "library", and a third for polished scenes that are ready to perform. In Push, I'm at a loss -- it just inserts things into random order, and there's no clear way to change it without picking up my mouse.
