Drum Racks and Slicing produce no sound
- Live Versions: 9.5 and later
- Operating System: All
When using Slicing Mode in Simpler with Drum Racks, it may be possible that no sound is produced.
This is because when hitting a Drum Pad only a single MIDI note is passed to instrument within the Drum Rack. This is usually set automatically in the Drum Rack I/O Section:
When the new Simpler is in Classic or 1-Shot mode, the sample will playback normally. But when in Slice mode, only one MIDI note is sent through to the instrument, resulting in silence or if configured otherwise, a single Slice sounding.
To resolve this:
For best results make sure to give Simpler a Track of its own when using Slice mode. If there is a Drum Rack feature you wish to use, then use Live's 'Convert to Drum Rack' option.
