Unfold and Fold Groups in Ableton Live Using the Akai APC40

The Akai APC40 is an excellent Ableton Live controller.  With it you can access just about any parameter inside of Live.  I've been using one for over a year and a half and it has helped me take Ableton to the next level.  Just a few weeks ago, I learned something I never knew.  You can unfold and fold groups right from the APC40!  It's as simple as holding down the track select button for a couple of seconds.  Watch in the video below as I give a full explanation.  Enjoy!

All the sounds in the video were made with the AfroDJMac Wind Chime Synths for Ableton.
