2 Midi Instruments -> 2 Midi Tracks - simultaneous playing with Ableton Live

Hi All,

I've been learning how to use Ableton Live for the past little while in order to make my one-man multi-instrumental electronic dance act a reality. I'm now trying to figure out how to simultaenously play several Midi Instruments.

I have several different midi controllers that work with live (2 midi keyboards + a korg padKontrol). I'd like to be able to tell a track to only recognize signal coming from a particular controller. Can anybody share with me how to do this?

Best,
Sami

Select the Midi Controller in the "Input" section of your Midi/Instrument track.

aaaand nvm, i figured it out.

hold command/ctrl while record-arming to let multiple tracks be recording.

then enable the i/o menu, and in there you can choose which devices to have a track listen to.

does anybody know if there's any way to change the preferences of ableton to make "record arm" by default enable/disable that specific track instead of switching to it? (without holding command i mean)

Open the preferences window (command + ,) and select the Record/Warp/Launch tab. Where it says "Exclusive", click the "Arm" button to turn it off. This will let you record arm as many tracks as you like at the same time (no need to hold the command key).
