And another one

Don't know if it's as awesome as it seemed when I was making it, but somehow from the first loop I made I was digging it.

More of a mixed bag of sample players -- Kore 2, Battery 3, Analogue, Electric. My favorite new trick -- load an instrument followed by a ton of effects inside an instrument rack, and then map what seems like useful controls onto the macro knobs. I did this on a couple of the instruments I used for this track.

So I recorded one pass to set up the song structure, and then multiple extra passes tweaking the instruments via the macro knobs.

The Novation Remote SL is quite useful for this because with Ableton Live, if you click on an instrument or effect, it automatically maps all the controls across the knobs, and has dedicated buttons for moving between and triggering scenes.
