Re: is it possible to observe the number of control surfaces?

Nope. It's very irritating. You have to poll it; with a forthcoming bugfix, you should get a [live.this_device] bang when one is added or removed, so it's not a dealbreaker.

Re: Looper plugin & M4L pitch shifting device: solving latencies

In this instance, I think your solution is to put the pitchchanger in an effects rack, then add another device to that rack in a second chain (a simple delay or an m4l device that allows you to compensate for the difference you're getting with the pitchchanger's output). Instead of using the Mix% on...

Re: remote~ from JS

Glad it helped....I know it seems like a wasteland out here in Python/m4l land sometimes.

Hey, that's cool :) I'm just getting into decorators, so it's timely and convenient that you posted that. Cheers !

Re: remote~ from JS

I don't use remote~ myself, so I can't testify to its efficacy. However: Js API calls are all low-priority (deferred), so, yeah, that's why you're seeing things queued and released. In addition, all of your js is happening in a single thread. I try to limit as much as possible the js-API interaction...

Re: Python launchpad control surface script conks out randomnly

One thing: you need to override the handle_sysex() method of the ControlSurface module....it's just a placeholder in the super(), so it's hitting an assertion error and possibly derailing some other stuff. I'm not sure about the assertion error with build_midi_map....are you calling it directly from...

Re: Python launchpad control surface script conks out randomnly

You're hitting an error, it will often break further processing depending on what it is. What's your log.txt file look like when this happens?

Re: How to add a callback to a button element in Python?

It will take just as long either way. It's mostly just a matter of which implementation is most convenient for your purposes. If you are only needing to receive notifications from a handful of id's, it's probably easier to set up button elements and override ControlElement._report_value.

Re: How to add a callback to a button element in Python?

It's slightly tricky. Yes, you have to explicitly forward the id's you want callbacks from using the ControlSurface.install_forwarding(), or do it manually using the Live.MIDIMap.forward_midi_note() method. If doing it the former way, you'll need to have a ButtonElement to assign the callback to. Al...

Re: More Python questioning...

I always seem to be in a hurry when you're asking interesting questions like this....and now is no different. Here's the short of it (if I'm understanding you correctly): Any Live object sent between Python and Max is converted by MxDCore into the unique id you're looking for (if you send 'id', your...

He needs to update to the most current Live/Max versions. I think [live.this_device] was released with Max5.16, but I'm not sure off the top of my head.

Re: Python / M4L Observe Element ?

Leigh, drop me some mail and I'll sort you out. I can't look at this extensively right now, but generally you have the right idea. There's some voodoo involved in order to get MxDCore to recognize the NotifyingControlElement's _value_notifications as a valid observable property. I'll have to look at...
