Hello, how can I have a scene keep on playing WHILE playing a separate sample that I control via MIDI? Imagine I have 2 clips in a scene, e.g. click track + backing track (I have attached you a screen shot of the three tracks so you can see better what I mean). Now I want to have a drum rack (with various drum sounds, controlled via various MIDI pads) on another (= third) track. This "drum rack track" I want to use e.g. for doing fills live, BUT WHILE the two other tracks keep on playing along. I tried group selection (for the first two tracks) but it didn't really work. I also think it should be possible very easily but I just haven't a clue yet. Thanks in advance, Hans

This should work as long as you aren't physically firing anything else off in track 3 - if you keep your samples in the drum rack, you can just record enable track 3 and hit those live. I attached a screenshot.
