Hey everybody,

I am a drummer, and about to play a gig with a full drumset and a midi drumpad (Alesis Samplepad Pro) controlling Ableton Live.
There are a few samples here and there that I need to trigger with it, as well as some loops, and I want to play each song with a click.

I wanted to setup all songs in one Set, so I don't have to switch sets on stage.

I'll be using a different Midi controller, that will trigger Scenes, each scene corresponding to a song (I added the bpm to each song name, so Ableton switches bpms automatically).

Now setting up the samples was easy. I used Drum Rack, with multiple chains, and each scene selects a different chain on that Drum Rack.

What I can't figure out though, is how to start and stop loops, that should be synced with my metronome.
Now, my initial idea was to simply assign some of my pads to launch clips, and setting the launch mode to "Toggle". This does exactly what I want (It only starts the clip at the first beat of the next bar, and hitting the same pad again will stop the clip).
The problem is, that this will not change depending on which scene I'm in (so hitting the same pad some time later in another song, will trigger the wrong clip).

Is there a way to configure a sample inside Drum Rack that will behave exactly the same as a clip launched with "Toggle" as launch mode?

I hope somebody can help me... I have been looking for this for more than a week now.

Thanks!

I have started to use WebStorm instead of the Dart Editor recently and am quite pleased with it.

The two major complaints that I have are:

1. It's not as clever in inferring the type of variables
2. It doesn't have a "quick fix" feature, to import libraries that are missing

An example of no. 1 would be:

var x = await doStuff(); // doStuff returns Future<String>
// Here WebStorm does not know that x is a String

This is quite annoying because it forces us to use explicit types more often than we would like to (breaking with the dart style guide).

EDIT: This has been fixed with the last WebStorm release.


Is there any ETA for those features? Or am I just missing something?

“STOP WRITING STATEFUL HTML”
After about 8 months, I finally released the next COLORGLARE article: http://www.colorglare.com/2014/11/24/stateless-html.html

I really like the concept of polymer, but now, with the addition of paper elements, I am a bit unsure if it's taking the right direction.

What happened to separation of concerns – keep design separate from application logic? Why are there polymer elements to center content?

It seems weird to me, that I use a specific HTML element, like paper-checkbox, so it has a specific design. If I want to change that later on, I have to go over all of my HTML and replace all occurrences of paper-checkbox.

What are your thoughts on that subject?
