Re: Unstable

M4L is unstable. There is an inherent incompatibility between the two programs. Get rid of it. Stop wasting time and improve the massive gaps that users have been requesting for years and years. Like Scene Follow Actions. Pay M4L developers a small fee for the best creations and integrate properly ...

Re: Javascript and deferlow

Here's what's in my setup: https://i.imgur.com/TqSrKHR.png I have one a listener looking at "playing_slot_index" on each of my decks. When the index changes that resets all effects on the given deck; a property change by way of a notification. To fix the error I sent an integer through deferlow and ...

Re: What are your use-cases of javascript?

Here it is running the APC40 MKII - you can download the device and code, too: https://drewreges.com/apc40-mkii/ . This was a leaner way to track all of the lighting feedback for the controller, perform playback logic, add non-native live functionality, etc. I build custom objects via JS to streamli...

Re: Create a new device using Max 4 Live

Do you need to create a whole new patcher or just some objects within an existing patcher? I think I might have some ideas.

Max is a kludgy shit show attempt at mimicking true programming Sorry, I can’t let this comment pass unchallenged. Max is a Turing complete programming language that has been around for a very long time (and is based on languages that have been around even longer). The fact that it does not look li...

Re: Am I the *ONLY* one finding M4L actually honestly unusable!?

Anything more than a couple of objects in a device and I step back to see what I've done wrong. That's insane, and certainly not even in the same universe as my own experiences. I'm curious as to whether the people in this thread who have these extreme issues are PC users. Oh, I'm not saying that d...

Re: Am I the *ONLY* one finding M4L actually honestly unusable!?

I totally agree that it's a very very clumsy and unreliable method of customizing Live. It's such a memory hog on account of it's pipes-and-devices layout and totally unsuited for professional usage, in my opinion. All of the commercial software pieces created in M4L that I've used have been horrend...

Re: Isotonik follow crashes liveset

I've definitely had crash problems with Isotonik products before, so you're not alone there. I just ended up moving on - I couldn't risk performances over it.

Where are you running into trouble with this? I've had nothing but luck monitoring metro object outputs in Java.

Re: Help porting some software I wrote into Live / M4L

But, programming control surfaces feels awkward... That is my opinion, too. When I first started using Live for DJing I purchased a commercial template from Isotonik, but it was pretty terrible and crashed a bunch. I just don't think that pure M4L scales well beyond a small devices, so offloading t...

Re: Help porting some software I wrote into Live / M4L

Totally agree. The whole pipes and balloons thing is a way to maybe test a basic concept, but if we're dealing with real coding then let's code for real.

Re: Listening to ButtonElement and ButtonMatrixElement in M4L

So my initial response is that maybe assigning path using the .path property may behave funny as the LiveAPI object returns it as a string with quotes around it. So, if your path is... control_surfaces 0 controls 92 ...then using the .path property actually returns... "control_surfaces 0 controls 92...
