switch mpc essentials sequence in ableton live

Hi!
I am using mpc element with mpc essentials 1.8.2 in ableton live 9 on OSX 10.11.3.
Is it possible to switch the sequence of a mpc essentials program (used as plugin) in ableton live?
i found this tutorial for the full mpc software: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uooCo...
but it is not working for me :(

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting!

    So, he's using program changes to tell the software which sequence to jump to. You could also use a program change to change programs or tracks in MPC too, so you'll need to tell MPC to change sequences. To do this, just go into your preferences, go to the "Other" tab and change the Program Change option to "Sequence."

    Then, create clips as described in the video and set the "PGM" number for each clip to the number of your sequence (you don't actually need to set a bank number as he described). And that's it! Hit play on the clip and it will send a program change to MPC to change it's sequence.

    I hope this helps!
