How prevent MIDI clip playback resetting Ableton Live Plugin Preset selection

Posted January 25th, 2018 at 22:00 PM

When you drag a MIDI file to a Clip box and you start playback some Ableton plugins will reset preset selection to 1. The solution is to double click on Clip to open Clip View and then under 'Notes' ensure that Pgm Change parameters Bank/Sub/Pgm are set to None or '---'.

You can now select your Plugin preset and clip playback will not change the preset selection.
