Although when it came out, IMNSHO, it had two priorities: route devices like the Remote SL25 into VST's hosted by Live, and route MIDI clips into third-party devices (either VST/AU or external hardware. I don't think it occurred to Ableton that MIDI could/should be sent from Live back into itself in order to control and automate its own functions. But that's a really, really, cool and useful tool that you can use clips for, if you just loop the input back again. --m. -- _____ "when you think your dreams are shattered, it's time to dream new dreams"
