You'll need to insert a new MIDI track for each cue file you'd like to setup as a pre-drawn clip. So, you'd have a MIDI track with a clip that says Intro, 2, 3, 4, another clip that says Verse, 2, 3, 4, and so on. After that, you can right-click on each individual clip and select "Export MIDI Clip". I recommend exporting somewhere easy like the desktop where you can find these. After you've exported all of the MIDI clips to your desktop, select them all and combine them into one folder. Drag that folder into Ableton's File Browser on the left-hand side of the screen. That's it! You'll now have these pre-made clips that you can drag and drop into your session instead of having to re-draw them all the time. Hope this helps!

I noticed in one of the other 101 tutorials that he had pre-made midi or wav clips for each section that he dragged into place (rather than having to manually input each notes). How did he do that? Thanks! —Christopher
I have downloaded the loop community pack a couple times, but it will not sound in Abelton live. It keeps saying media files missing. Could you give me some guidance on how to fix this.... thanks.
@donaldnwx I was having some panning issues of my own last week (just purchased ableton) and found it was a settings issue. I am using a pretty run of the mill Toshiba but it had some surround sound and Toshiba settings auto set that caused things to bleed through. I turned off all of the effects and it now works as simple as the videos make it! Hopefully you have figured it out by now but thought I'd post nonetheless...
How do you get the vocal cues to show up in your drum rack?
I did a side-by-side with a bunch of interfaces a while back and found (surprisingly) that an Art USB Dual Pre (http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/USBDualPrePS/) sound better than a lot of more expensive interfaces. It's not much money and is dead simple.
@donaldnwx Unfortunately channel bleed is a common problem on headphone outputs and cheaper audio interfaces. A decent audio interface should solve them problem or even two cheaper ones (I can't afford a very nice multiple output interface, but do have a cheaper one i use for click and cues which just go to the iems, and another better one for stereo loop therefore there can't be any bleed between channels for just iems and channels that the congregation hear)
