I just want to trigger the samples via my controller keyboard and record the MIDI into my host, Ableton.
The presets load with built-in sequences, and I don't want to have to clear them manually every time I load a preset, just so I can play / record via my host.
In regards to bypassing Revolution's sequencer and instead recording MIDI or drawing in MIDI notes directly in your DAW's sequencer to trigger the drums - In this example you don't actually have to clear any patterns, since the sequencer will not be triggered (as you won't be pressing the play button). You can simply just leave the patterns loaded and trigger Revolution's individual drum machines / drum sounds via MIDI. Using Revolution in this mode I would recommend turning off both 'Host Sync' (located to the left of Revolution's 'play' button and 'MIDI Select' (located at the top right of the Revolution interface)
In this mode simply don't press Revolution's 'play' button, ad instead trigger the individual sounds via MIDI.
If you do want to clear patterns, you can go to the main 'SEQ' page in Revolution, and at the bottom of this page (underneath the 'Perc 2' sequencer lane, press the 'X' icon. This will clear the entire pattern in one click
