Is there a way to reverse individual slices in Simpler?

Is there a way to reverse individual slices in Simpler?

Is there a way to reverse individual slices in Ableton Simpler?

I've tried on the Push and tried to find a way using the keyboard and searched the forum and the Internet for an answer, but found only one unanswered question on the Ableton forum.

I think you'll need to slice to multiple Simplers, the classic way, to achieve this.

Ok, thanks Mikael. I'm still finding my way with Ableton and Push and this sounds like an over-complicated procedure. I expect that if nobody else is asking for it then maybe it's not really something that people want. It seems like a missed trick to me though.

It would be a nice feature with slice reverse especially considering any audio clip in Live 10 can do this.

Don't dismiss the new old way though. It's actually very straightforward to convert to multiple Simplers. Just right-click the sample in Simpler while in slice mode and choose "Slice to Drum Rack". Every slice will be put into its own Simpler, mapped to a drum pad and a clip playing the loop will be added in this track. You can play this clip, make your own clips playing the slices and treat each slice individually.

Thanks Mikael.

I hope I didn't sound ungrateful for the workaround, as i'm sure I'll be using your method regularly once I get a few more hours of use under my belt. I'm trying to run before learning some of the basics still with Ableton. I expect certain things to work a certain way and in some cases i've been pleasantly surprised by the power of Ableton and yet other times equally frustrated with it's limitations, or more so my efforts to achieve what i'm aiming for. It's good to know that there are workarounds.

What I tend to do is convert my simpler instrument into a drum rack. Then I can individually process (in your case, reverse) any single same that I want.
When I am doing more intricate editing on a simpler instrument I almost always convert it to a drum rack.

I've been experimenting with the drum rack this evening and it's been really good fun. I didn't see the reverse option, but know I now it's there i'll be sure to look for it. Thank you.
