Ableton Live template - Individual audio output per sound

Post by adamm » Tue Sep 18, 2012 12:36 pm

This template demonstrates how to set up all the D16 "silver line" drum plugins so that each sound is routed to it's own individual track using Ableton's Grouped Tracks and External Instrument Objects.

There are three top-level tracks configured as Ableton Groups, one for each instrument. Clicking one of these tracks will expand the submix group. Since these group tracks are treated as audio tracks, you can drop audio effects plugins, etc into them.

Opening one of these shows all the separate mixer channels for it. Two tracks are named Drumazon:
The Group track is first, this is the track that folds up.
The other track named Drumazon is the first track inside the group, differentiated with a slightly lighter color, is the midi track containing the Drumazon plugin. Since this track can hold midi clips it can be used to send midi notes to trigger your own patterns which you've programmed into the internal sequencer.
Next are all the individual sounds. Since Nepheton has more sounds than available outputs, some of the sounds were grouped into one output, such as the toms sharing one output, ch and oh, etc. Following the example of the template, it's really easy to change the mappings and group them any way you like.

Uploaded a new version on 9/22/12:
Fixed the Nithonat channel out colors
Turned off internal sync on all plugins (make them sync to the Ableton clock)

The file is too big, even zipped, to be uploaded to the forum (256k max) so it's hosted here: ... utsproject
The page is a little confusing: click the link "Download this file now" and type the CAPTCHA phrase shown.

The link to the template in a first post expired, that's why we decided to host this file on our server: ... utputs.als

(this template file requires all Drum Machines being installed)

Thank you Adamm for preparing it and sending it over.

Best regards,
