Blocks are pale red

hey everyone

i’m new to ableton today and loving it so far. i’ve been doing some drum patterns in 1 (channel is it?) and the blocks are dark red. now i’ve created another drum set and the blocks are showing in a pale red colour and don’t seem to be as loud as the others although the volume is up high.

any ideas?


EDIT : sorry i’ve figured it now, note velocity alt+drag!! :o)

It’s because your velocity on each midi note is too low. You can adjust it on the small “strings” at the bottom of your ableton window when viewing the midi clip.
