I’ve been trying to figure out for a while now how to track my sounds into Ableton, while ensuring the songs sound the same as they did in the S2400.
In short, using the [SOLO] or [MUTE] buttons to track each of your sounds into your DAW doesn’t seem to preserve the choke grouping effect gained by squeezing all your sounds through only 8 outputs.
I realized recently that instead, if you track your sounds in one-by-one with only one volume fader up at a time, it does indeed let you capture each track into your DAW while also retaining the choke group effects. Dope!
In this video I’ll show you how I’ve been tracking my songs into Ableton for additional production, mixing, and mastering, while preserving the choke grouping effects.

Hopefully this will help some of you properly get your tracks out of the beast!
