Yes, this is pretty straight forward. You just have to use blank MIDI clips in Ableton to send program change messages to Sensory Percussion.
I made a quick template for you in Live 10 that demonstrates this:
ableton-program-control-of-sensory-Project.zip (18.7 KB)
I can very easily remake it in Live 9 for you if you haven’t updated to 10 yet.
Here’s how it works:
First you need to select an internal MIDI bus as the output to Ableton and the same bus as the input to Sensory:
Here’s an article on how to create an internal MIDI bus if you haven’t created one before.
Then you create a MIDI track in ableton with the internal bus as the output:
Then you record a blank MIDI clip, double click it and select “1” for the program change message. This is automatically mapped to the kit selector in Sensory Percussion:
Then you can duplicate this MIDI clip on the timeline, selecting increasing program changes to correspond to the same kit number in Sensory Percussion:
In the template I attached, every 16 bars (starting on bar 17 because I’m superstitious about not having free space at the beginning of my timelines) Ableton sends a program change message to Sensory to go to the next kit (1-10).
When you’re doing this kind of thing it’s probably a good idea to have a seamless kit transitions setup on your kits in Sensory:
