*tries to cast mind back* not sure now (only started using live again this week for the 1st time in about a year).

I was under the impression that triggering clips was polyphonic! ..if its not then it bloody well should be.

how are you setting the clips to be triggered ? by hitting the midi button on the top bar then selecting the clip then hitting the key on your keyboard you want to trigger with ?

you can have as many tracks/clips running simultaniously as your computer can handle...if (and i think this is what you mean) you want to trigger them at exactly the same time...then either - asign them to diferent keys/buttons and press em at same time...or - make sure they both/all on a horizontal row and click on the start arrow in the coresponding numbered box on the far right of the view..called a 'scene' this will trigger everything on that row...

yep...one of the wonderous wonders of ableton...you can assign absolutely everything...till you run out of keys!

(edit) by clicking a different scene the other scene will stop...but you can add or take away clips without that happening
