Picture 21

This allows you to display the Clip View for whatever clip is currently playing in a given track. Once shown, you can MIDI control clip-specific properties such as the Loop switch, the loop points and the clip’s nudge controls, to name just a few. In the coming days, we’ll dig into some fun and interesting mappings for live performance.
