I like to use the preset racks in Ableton Impulse. The problem is I for the life of me cannot figure out how to switch the positions of the drum samples. Say I wanted to have the kick drum in 3rd position rather than 1st position? Dragging won't work... anyone know a simple way to say, switch the kick with the hat or whatever?
Well. I have Ableton Live 9 Suite and I just dragged one drum rack position to another one and it swapped the samples between those two positions.
From the Ableton Live 9 PDF manual (page 275):
Dragging a pad to another pad swaps the note mapping between the pads. This means that any MIDI clips triggering the affected notes will now play the “wrong“ sounds — although this might be exactly what you want. ALT / CMD-dragging one pad to another will layer any chains from both pads in a nested Instrument Rack.
