Create Racks in Ableton Live
Ableton has four types of rack, serving Audio Effects, Instruments, Drums and MIDI Effects. Despite a slightly different look for the drum rack, all four work in very much the same way, combining multiple chains (the three horizontal lines icon) to do their thing. Macros are accessed using the knob icon in the top left, and they can be mapped in Live’s left-hand bar after you click the Map button. To assign third-party plugin parameters to macros, you’ll have to expand the plugin device first. You can also turn two devices (of the same kind) into a rack by Grouping them.
