Hey Mark -
I struggle with this a lot, although the only reason I would want preset access specifically would be to invoke certain otherwise inaccessible param changes.
I need at minimum a pushbutton solution for changing subcycle setting (2, 4, 8. etc), but would like access to a number of other things that live in menus (Insert mode, SwitchQuant, etc).
This week I am doubling down on getting control away from the computer and back onto physical knobs and faders where they belong !
I've looked at using preset banks, EDP style... but Echoloop wants a program change to access preset banks and I think Ableton is challenged there.
Tried using Clip Envelopes but they are relative rather than absolute, and things get goofy fast because of that.
Now per Per's advice I am trying a MIDI clip envelope solution which looks promising - but it requires placing the Echoloop VST into a MIDI track - and now I can't seem to route audio to the plugin since it's in a MIDI track !!
GAH - still working it here. Good luck and let us know what you find. I'll do the same :)

while we´re on the subject of Echoloop, can someone tell me how one goes about creating and changing "presets", (to use an EDP term). I can see how to select different Insert Modes for example, but how do I change them "on the fly" from a foot pedal? I also need to get into SuS Record and Stutter mode too... (I can see how to do that too, but not how to make a "snapshot" of settings that I can bring up with one foot press.
On my EDPs I have one bank that has all the Presets I need, 1 thru 5 (then they are repeated on pedal numbers 6 thru 10, except the have Midi set OUT (for receiving clock from the drum machine instead of sending clock)
On my software setup (Mobius and Echoloop in Audio Mulch) I dont know how to do this and have to bend over and select stuff with the mouse, which is less than OK.
