— I have a drum track on track 1
— I copy track 1 to track 5
— The copied track is now on track 5, but no matter what I do I can’t seem to change the midi channel to 5. It stays at 1 since that’s the track I copied from
— Even if I hold track 5 and change the channel to 5, it only transmits via channel 1
don’t press the encoder …
channel selection is immediate
(you can just press track again to exit this screen)
generally press encoder = reset to default
which in this case = 1
also drum tracks only use that midi channel for automation.
they use the midii channel on the note screen for the notes.
this is because some drum machines need different hits to be on different midi channels… not just different notes (numbers)
you change that by holding down encoder on note screen
(generally , numbers underneath main parameters are done with this gesture)
I still can’t seem to change the port though. Once I’ve copied a track with a certain port setting, I can’t seem to ever change it on the new track…
In practice, if I copy track 1 with MIDI A to track 5, I won’t be able to use track 5 to control Ableton via USB. Even if I hold delete and reset the track 5. The only way that I’ve found around this is to find another track that has USB port and copy that over.
ah, the issue is when you paste a track it is initially MUTED (thats why track is flashing)
this is because, say you were performing… and wanted to layer something…
when you paste you don’t want it to immediate start sending duplicate data.
rather, you paste it , change the destination (port/channel) then unmute it…
sorry, I thought you were saying hapax UI was not updating… didn’t realise you meant data was not sent.
