    TIP: if, at 2:35 when the narrator states to push the “down arrow on your
    computer keyboard” to select the Midi track while keeping the sample
    selection in the audio track, that does not work for you while using
    Ableton Live Lite (8), try clicking on the “track name” field of the midi
    track then follow the steps from that point on to get samples into impulse.
    that worked for me when the down arrow method would unselect my sample
    selection in the audio track.

    Spectacular video. Sorry for doing this but it is difficult for a new DJ to
    get views on here particularly with the new commenting system. This isn’t
    spam. I wish to tell you my story. I am a music producer. After extensive
    research I am glad I found what seems to be the #1 beat making program for
    2014. You can find a link to this music production software on my channel.
    go check it out.

    At 2:35, shift down arrow also works.

    Why are you showing us the hard way to do it? You need to simplify these
    tutorials for those with little to no experience using digital audio work
    stations. “We could use a ready made drum beat, but we’re’ going to make
    our own, etc…..” That should be another tutorial for advanced users.

    My Ableton 9 Questions: PLEASE HELP.
    1.) Difference between midi tracks and audio tracks?
    2.) How do I load sounds? Is that what drum rack and impulse is for?
    3.) How do I load Samples?
    4.)How do I sync and Play my Maschine Mikro with ableton?
    5.) Once I HAVE gotten all of my parts of a song played in/loaded in the
    arrangement view (say like 2-4 bars for each section of my song) how do i
    stretch them each to make a complete song of like… a few minutes? I just
    need to duplicate? Correct?
    6.) Can’t I just record directly into the arrangement view?

    Thank you so much. I use Ableton 9 suite. And have a maschine mikro.

    ALso, I get that impulse is used to sample percussion sounds, but what can
    I use to sample other sounds? Like Pads, synths, etc. ? Thanks

    this was incredibly helpful, and you sound 80% like will smith.

    Why is my sample faded out? It plays, but doesn’t look ‘active’. When I try
    dragging selections from it into Impulse, I keep getting the same bass
