    To save the current live set as the default template, just get everything set the way you want it and then go into Preferences/File-Folder/Save Current Set as Default. That will now be the default set that appears when you open Live.

    Apart from that, any Live set can act as a "Template". It's a bit confusing, because the manual implies that Live 9 comes with a set of templates (which I was unable to locate), but you can easily make your own and store them in a folder called Templates if you wish. There's nothing special about them -- they're just Live Sets like any other.

    Templates are stored in User Library/Templates. Saving a Live Set here seems to automatically make it a template.

    To access them, click User Library in the Places menu, then navigate to Templates. Double click one to open, and it will open as an untitled new Set.

    Templates (on my Ableton Live 9.6) overwrite ONE file called Template.als  in a remote, hard to find location.  See  https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/articles/209067189-How-to-create-new-or-blank-Default-Sets

    This is makes it very hard to change templates.  Why not make this easier Ableton??
