Preset Selection Using Ableton Live as DAW

Hi,

I'd like to control Voluum's user presets with ableton live in our band context. I'm using standard MIDI (not the USB) connection.

The Problem I have is user bank selection. I can easily select the factory presets, but switching to user bank isn't working in ableton live.
Do you have a working example or some tips&tricks how to do preset control with ableton? I'm using the session view midi control.
Preset selection works fine, but I'm unable to change the bank. (Channel 32 is directly controlled with ableton bank and preset menu.)

Best regards

Benjamin

Hi Benjamin,

The best way to do this is to use Set List mode (available in the latest firmware update). This makes it easier to select which program change numbers are used for each presets, and avoids you having to send bank-select to switch between user and factory presets.
