Slicing mode in Drum Racks produce no sound

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: All

When you hit a Drum Pad, only a single MIDI note is passed to the instrument within the Drum Rack. Usually this is set automatically in the Drum Rack I/O Section: 


When 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. 

To fix this, we recommend having Simpler in a Track of its own when using Slice mode. If there is a Drum Rack feature you wish to use, you can select Live's 'Convert to Drum Rack' option.
