Now it does!it didnt' just because I didn't know anything about this
remainder ( I was thinking you made a mistake and you wanted to write

yes its' a little complicated but yes I understand , in a easier way it is
what happens when you push the button in Ableton live and the clip waits to
start with another.
It's a good way to connect different patches together and mix them as you
