When using abelton as you do, can you launch scenes out of order so-to-speak and have the SP keep up with those changes? Or it just gets the tempo clock from abelton and when you start it (the sp seq.) it always just begins at the begining regardless of what 'scene' abelton might be launching??
Im wanting to be able to jump around in the diferent sequences in the SP with abeltons clip launcher so that I can work out different arrangements and loop particular scenes as I work.
For example; 4 bars of just kick intro, 4 bars kick and snare, 4 bars of all-in drums, now if I want to work on just the 4 bars kick and snare can I set it to launch the scene and it will play just that section so that I can work on synths etc for that scene w/o having to first hear the 4 bars kick only intro and then have it go to the next section and on to the next all while in abelton I am still in the same scene??
Is this making any sense?
Thanks for any and all help, I am pretty new to abelton still and as I said I have never used an SP so I am all ears. And yes I am now off to RTFM but I doubt it has a chapter on working the SP and abelton together...
