make Presets in Ableton Live super easy
- drag & drop inside an Ableton Rack
- store up to 10 Effects, VST, AU Plugins
- no mapping necesary
this is super easy to set up. You have to place the X-Preset Device inside and Ableton Audio Rack, Midi Rack or Instrument Rack and you can store up to 10 of the following Devices inside this Rack just by Clicking “Store”. the Devices are regognised automatically and there’s no need to map or assign something.
It’s even possible to change the order of the effects.
Remote Control your Presets
The X-Preset Devices are made especially with Live Performances in mind and of course you have different options to switch between the Presets. In order to ensure seamless integration with your Midi controllers you can control the X-Preset Device by:
- Midi mapping
- programm change messages
- Clip Automation
- Clip Names
with this you can customize the remote control for every controller which sends CC messages and also the grid controllers from Launchpad to Push 1, Push 2 & Push 3 …
You can map any Midi Controller to switch or pre select the Presets.
In the Settings you can select the control source. If it’s set to “control change” you can send control change messages via the Ableton Live Clips or evne from external Midi Sources.
switch between the presets by controlling the X-Preset Device by Clip Automation.
You are able to control every Device by clip names, eveen from other Tracks. That means you can make a clip matrix for a dedicated controller like the launchpad mini for example to have control over all your presets.
Yes it’s modular. You can connect the X-Preset Devices by assign them to up to 16 groups.
Every Device which is in one group act like you control one Device. That means, if you switch the presets in any Device which is in Group 1, all other Devices of this group will follow. The same with store and overwriting a preset. This gives you very fast workflow.
So, you can handle presets all over your Live project in defferent Tracks like you’re working in one Device.
Especially for playing Live, where you can switch Guitar FX or Drumsounds with the Ableton DS Drumsynths for example, it’s an essenmtial tool to get really quick from A to B.
Export & Import Presets
and last but not least it’s possible to export the presets and importing it again inside another Live Project.
