Why doesn't Push translate Drum Racks within Instrument Racks as 4x4 Drum Pads?
I've been at my wit's end since buying PUSH right at the beginning of its existence.
PUSH doesn't recognise Drum Racks within Instrument Racks. It simply considers that the housing Instrument Rack is the most important aspect... whatever is inside it is irrelevant.
So since the start, I have needed to source external scripts to create this basic functionality.
Surely PUSH should be able to intuitively work out that the instrument type [chain] that's currently being focused on within an Instrument Rack is either a keyroll instrument or a drum rack instrument - and map it out onto PUSH's pads accordingly?!
It just seems so natural to expect that.
I depend on 1 instrument rack in my live performance that houses a series of drum racks on different chains [1 chain per song].
As you say in your FAQ - these external scripts are not advisable as you discreetly update our Ableton programs when we're online [which I'm thankful for] but then the scripts stop working. When faced with a live performance situation, this finding this out too late, by chance, is an absolute nightmare...
PLEASE just add this into PUSH's basic functionality. PLEASE!
I love Ableton. Keep doing what you do.
