    Can someone tell me how to copy the entire scene from one project to another? I know i was able to copy the group via computer from one project to another and it brings the patterns along with the groups, but now i have to sit and recreate the scenes, is there a way to copy scene, here is the use case I make a drum beat, want to copy it into another project and make variation of it so i can reuse parts of the original beat.

    No that's not possible, but you just could delete everything else, make the new variation and save it as a new project.

    But that method won’t work if you need to take scenes from two different projects into a third project

    That’s right.
    If you really intent to do this, just resample those specific scenes and use it as audio within your new project.

    I understand that’s a solution, but then I can’t tweak anything in that scene because it’s audio, it feels like a half baked solution. Wish NI can implement save option for scenes just like how we have for groups and sounds

    I understand your concern but unfortunately you'll have to do some workaround. ‍♂️

    Apart from using saved groups, as Uwe303 suggested, you can export your specific SCENES as single audio files (see option SOUND within the audio export window). When doing this the files are proper named automatically. This is quick and dirty.

    If you want to have maximum flexibility, I would recommend to use the workaround, as Uwe303 suggested. If you name the specific pattern of each group before saving (e.g. SCENE 2) it should be easy to recall the desired scene.

    That is a good Idea, i'll rename the patterns and copy the groups for now as a workflow, thank you for the suggestion.
