Empty clip with same preset not possible? (was it ever?)
So I know that the idea is that same preset on multiple rows in song view is pretty much like having different clips to launch in the same track on something like Ableton Live.
It's easy to create a quick variation by cloning a clip. This gives the new clip the same note/controller data and assigns it the same preset. Meaning you can quickly move some notes around or whatever and now you've got a new "pattern" to play.
My question is this: Can I just create an empty clip and give it the the same preset? It seems to "skip" over the preset now. I swear it didn't do that before. I can still clone an existing clip and then delete all the note and controller data manually, but that seems like a lot of extra steps. Am I crazy or did the ability to just assign a preset that's already being used to a new clip get removed?
