I'm curious on how you guys work with the cntrl:r. I work with Ableton live 9
I've basically come up with some issues when it comes to modifying new musical ideas. Generally, I set up steppr:r on a track and when I want to record midi, I send it to an other midi track. Now this allows me to write my ideas in midi.
Now, for example I have a midi pattern that I want to modify and that does not come from the stepp:r. So my idea was to set the incoming midi of the cntrl:r from that particular track. It works, the midi goes through the hardware, but then, I cannot modify it because the incoming midi only comes from the midi track and not the cntrl:r anymore.
How can I set up things to have for example a midi track that sends a pattern to the hardware (so I can physically see the midi notes in the sequencer) and the hardware that sends this pattern along with the modifications, in real time, to another midi track ?
My problem here is basically that things go only on one side : you've come up with a musical idea, you write it on the cntrl:r. You record this, every midi note comes out. Then imagine you're on the middle of the song and you decide to modify a pattern. In the meantime, you erased the patterns on the sequencer. How can you do it quickly without having to "rewrite" the pattern on the cntrl:r sequencer ?
How do you guys work with the Cntrl:R ? Any tips on making it more studio-ish that live-ish ?
How do you configure midi tracks with the cntrl:r ? Do you create a separate midi track for each slot in the drum rack or do you keep everything in a single midi track ?
