Triggering a Clip
Now it is really simple to trigger your clip. In this tutorial, I’ve assigned keys A and B to both MIDI clips (from my computer keyboard) as a quick example. The default assigned key for global playback is your space bar, which you can of course re-assign should you wish to.
In order to trigger playback of clips, first hit the space bar so the playback begins. Then you can select clips from the keys you mapped (in the case of our example, clip A or B) or whichever you want to play at whatever time. This would also work with audio clips, and you can use the same method which is particularly useful for play sampled drum breaks whenever you wish.
Triggering either Midi or Audio clips (or both) could eventually result in a live set with your own unique flavor or style. For instance, by combining a Midi clip with a VST instrument (such as a Battery drum kit) and some sampled breaks (such as the amen break), you can drop them in the middle of your set for maximum effect.
