    Hi,

    First of all. Love my Maschine:)

    I managed to jump between scenes from within Ableton using program change messages. Now I want to switch between patterns in a scene. Does this also works using program change messages? Can't get it working:(

    Help is welcome...

    Thanx!
    Marcus

    That's why there's 64 scenes.

    What I do with Live is arm the audio tracks and just play on the fly using the controller.

    I understand. But what if i want to record the "on the fly" changes between patters, or in this case scenes, while playing maschine?

    Hitting the buttons while switching scenes(patterns), does not send midi data to Ableton. And the other way around is by sending Program change data to maschine, wich only works with scenes.

    Would be great to record the on the fly act...but how?

    Best regards,
    Marcus

    Record the audio, as I said. See the thumbnail; Maschine with four outs going into Live.

    Actually, I just set it up quickly as an example. In recording, your monitor switches on the audio tracks have to be set to in.
