In the top picture, you have a simpler > inside an instrument rack > inside a drum rack. In the bottom picture you have a simpler > inside a drum rack... If you select this simpler and hit cmd-g you'll group it into an instrument rack and you'll be able to access this layer of macros. J.

  • Hi, thanks for trying to help me out! Much appreciated! unfortunately it didn't work. I didn't get the gain, attack etc parameters to come up. It was just stacked into an instrument rack, like you said but no gain , attack parameters were added. Do you know any other possible solution? Jul 2, 2014 at 0:30
  • Ask this question on the Ableton Live forum perhaps? This is not a sound design question.. Jul 2, 2014 at 14:30
  • In the simpler on the right side is a circular arrow. Press it to Open the Parameter Marcos. Then you can Map them to gain etc Jul 3, 2014 at 12:07

.." I didn't get the gain, attack etc parameters to come up"

The parameters you are looking for must be assigned manually. I guess the nested Drum/Instrument/Simpler rack in the upper part of your picture is a factory preset.
