Ableton Drum rack effects

I am making myself a drum rack for all my cymbals.

So I have dropped 16 cymbal samples into the chain, each one in a simpler sampler.

Now what I want to have incorporated into the drum rack is a compressor. Only thing is I would like all my Hi hat samples to be running through one compressor, and all my other cymbal samples running through another compressor. Is there a way I can do this without having 16 separate compressors on each of the 16 samples chains?

Thanks.

Cmd + G with all of your hats selected in the chain to create a group. Then rename and drop a compressor on the group. Then repeat for your cymbals.

Thanks I just figured that out as well.

Not sure if grouping was going to act the same as it did for instrument racks.

Re: Ableton Drum rack effects

Wait, you have 16 individual racks, or you grouped samples within a rack?

Because I didn't know you could do the latter.

Say YES!

Re: Ableton Drum rack effects

Grouping them just places them into another rack in its own chain within the main rack.
