saving the preset modules within the Ableton Live set

Jan 28 2013 | 9:02 am

Dear all,

I read several topics in the forum and I read the documentation, I tried many things (click on "save preset into patch", "parameter mode enable") but I am lost and can’t solve my issue:
– I have a live.grid that is stored into a preset M4L modules. the aime of this live grid si to send drum steps :-) to a drum rack.
– I added a save and load function.. okay, the system ask me to save a json file. If I reopen the file I can see that Ableton live has reloaded my live.grid steps correctly. Fine!

But why this information are not stored within the Ableton Live Set directly?

Can you help?

according to some tutorials in this forum, it seems that If I want to do this .. I need also to add a pattr module. I will try and keep the community informed :-)

I found an less "complex" way, instead of using the "pattr" module and so connect all my parameters into it (and thus making the presets saved into the ableton live set), I choose to use the DROP FILE module.
People drop the patterns saved with my M4L Drum box on they hard disk. Then, they drag and drop the file saved onto my M4L patch… the patch load the right file and if you save the live set, close it and reopn it, Ableotn live re load the presets files automatically :-)

I know using a drop file module is a bit leazy ;-)
