    Change in reply by yyyyyyyyy5600 . to I try to write precisely and specific: i have an mp3 track with a synth sound. I don't want to search from GB of sound libraries a vst that fit the right sound, or similar.<br /> <br /><br />So i cut the mp3, 1 note at a time, to have samples of the right sound . Then, i sample with midi mapping in the keybed or pad with "drum rack". So i don't use scenes or clip because i don't use sequences (sia background sounds). I just use samples instead vst.<br /> <br /><br />For my ableton skills, the only way to take more than one drum rack (just to sample other kind of sounds) is put every drum rack in a instrument rack.<br /> <br /><br />Maybe that "matrioska" style of setup with ableton may be replaced by "parallel" setup (one drum rack in every midi track, armed by midi.<br /> <br /><br />But the problem for me, it's the same: the best solution would be a specific output when i change sounds (drum racks).<br /> <br /><br />I watch "code editor" video and i Think it works, because you could create a preset with a specific name, and mapping al the keyboard (what note every key/pad play, colors etc.)<br /> <br /><br />Otherwhise, i se e that VIP have a 3.0 version that maybe extend power of the suite to what i want to do.<br /> <br /><br />I hope that an eployee reply because i'm really confused of what to buy.

    Change in reply by yyyyyyyyy5600 . to Ok but, according to have a display , i'm not able to change scenes and have a visual output ? <br /><br /> For example: right now i create a MiDI track(that can take midi signal only from M audio), i put inside an instrument track, inside instrument track i put one drum rack for each Song, with various note of one specific sound. <br /><br /> In that case i mapping speaker icon of every drum rack on midi to enable/disable that sound. <br /><br /> 2 issues: i must remember that one one midi pad can be selected (otherwhise for the same key i Gould launch many different sounds) and i always remember that midi button "x" is sound for Song 1 etc. <br /><br /> I imagine that with a text output (maybe the same of the song) i'm able to know what i do and parking Song by Song fast and safe. <br /><br /> Maybe VIP can help me ? It Accept samples from outside? <br /><br /> Code49 is maybe better of i want to create a personalized setlist on Live, according to Code suite? <br /><br /> Finally: maybe if i put drum rack one on every midi track and use buttons under the feders to arm the tracks? <br /><br /> Thank you.

    Changed description to Hi guys. I used for long time an Axiom AIR 61 but i want an upgrade to play live. So i need a realiable product (no latency/dropout/freeze on stage) and possibly well construction (not too "plastic" effect). Also a product already supported in terms of updates. I always play via USB on a Win7 laptop with Ableton Live. Like i said, i use it pretty much for live performances. I don't use any kind of vst, i use the keyboard for electro/synth sounds, but only samples. basically i have samples in .wav format of every note that i want to play, then what i want is just to put every sample in the "right" note via MIDI mapping, then create a drum rack with many chains(group of samples), just to divide each sound, that i would change song by song. I hope that the explanation is clear. So, i like code49 because of price, beacuse of 61key possibility, because it's beautiful and it has lot of lights and 16 pads. plus, the suite to program keys in 4 areas etc it's really cool and would be awesome to build my presets for every different song. Otherwise, i read a lot of problems/issues with code series, i don't know if firmware updates have solved problems, and a cheaper chassis and fader/knobs, doesn't look solid at all on many reviews. CTRL49 is more expensive, i know that fader are not midi assignable, less pads, but an awesome display that may help me to running fast through my drum rack and chains, without put my hands every time on the computer. so, my doubts are: 1) ctrl49 is more expensive than code (100$ basically): it's worth it? it seems well constructed, with better materials, and maybe it's more "professional" item for a musician on stage. Am i right? 2)what i want to do (no vst, just Ableton live, samples MIDI assigned in drum racks) it's possible in both keyboards? 3) ctrl49 works without VIP? if yes, can i take advantage from the color display, to change my sounds (aka select the right chain with the right sound, fast and simple?) without touching laptop? I read something about the possibility to do setlist in ctrl49. Only with VIP? maybe i can charge my own sounds on VIP libraries? 4) i see a white version of ctrl49 but i don't find any of these to buy, only black. Know you more? thanks a lot for a reply.
