Hi, We have a very fluid songflow at our church. We know what songs we will be doing but "as the Spirit moves" we may repeat choruses, bridges intro's or whatever several times. Never do the arrangement as practiced. So I think I know you can have Ableton jump to different song sections by markers and keystrokes or midi. But could I also have that same keystroke/midi trigger a vocal cue. Basically what I want Ableton to do is when I activate one key or button to immediately say "verse" and on the next downbeat switch to the proper part of the song. Possible? Thanks, Pete

Mike, thanks Nearly exactly what I asked for. Now I think all I would have to do in addition is to fire the master track sections from a footswitch or keyboard by setting a kb or midi event to that section right? learning a lot here. Pete

Yep - map the MIDI out for each track section. This should help: http://loopcommunity.com/training/mapping-midi-ableton
