Can I record the midi from a whole song in Ableton into Nerdseq?
#1
I know Nerdseq can record MIDI in. Is it possible to record an entire set/song in Ableton, one track at a time, into the Nerdseq to essentially "transfer" the MIDI?

I'm looking into a portable hybrid setup for performance using the Nerdseq as the brain. One way to do this would be to trigger MIDI in Nerdseq and process in Ableton, maybe muting Ableton tracks with a midi controller as a way to move from one song to another. Another option would potentially be to play the songs from the Nerdseq and process in a Raspberry PI running Renoise.

In both cases, ideally I'd have all the songs programmed in Nerdseq instead of triggering pre-recorded clips in a DAW. But I would like to avoid programming existing tracks one note at a time into the Nerdseq.

Is it possible to do this?

You can record midi from ableton but be aware it will only record into the nerdSEQ steps. So you would need to proper synchronize them.
You can record multiple tracks at the same time, so there is most probably no need to mute anything. The important thing is to set it up well and define what the record source is and where the recordings it should end up (eg Midi track/ CV/Gate track etc).

So an entire song should be possible, keeping the maximum amount of patterns in your mind.
