We (almost) all love tweak our instruments, find the right sound, save it and, on stage, play with global volumes/levels tracks.
The fantastic Elektron’s machines, those which made me dropping Ableton Live at least for my next year live performances, doesn’t provide levels as global parameters.
When you change a pattern to another one which doesn’t use the same kit, the new kit is loaded and levels are changed too, of course.
I’m using machines like if they were connected to a global mixer and I want to be able to control levels completely independantly of kits, patterns etc.
Then, I wanted to have global levels.
