Re: Apc40 and the Button_Matrix

could it be a reference to the device?
suppose you have more than one APC,
the 4th number basically directly tells
on which APC the button was pressed. so
first APC Button_Matrix Control returns
'1', second returns '2' and so on.

Re: Apc40 and the Button_Matrix

usually, but not always, properties that can be observed are the ones originated directly inside live, and/or the ones that don't create too much events (unless these are essential events, like with some timing/transport properties). track_offset and scene_offset are properties of the components. th...

Re: Anyone using a macbook pro with a SSD for audio?

davepermen it's right. 3phase you're one lucky guy. I've had a lot of hdd failures over the years, believe me it's only a matter of time.

Re: Kenton Control Freak -vs- BCR2000

+1 for PC1600x I've had it since it came out probably a couple of years more than ten not only is built like a tank it also has some serious midi programming features. 8) (...too bad live sucks with sysex) still...

Re: Apc40 and the Button_Matrix

If you bind the button_matrix values to the actual scene/track offset, what would you do when you don't want to use the button_matrix to control clips but to control something else? It makes sense that the property values returned by the button_matrix are related 'only' to the button_matrix: i.e., a...

Re: how to communicate with control surfaces

sure it's possible to do everything from scratch the idea should be to use control_surface objects like they are some kind of 'library'. If you can program in C/C++ you can manipulate strings by writing a bunch of modules and functions that handle characters, but still you'd better use some string m...

Re: how to communicate with control surfaces

@mersault Your first post has the question "How do you get Max For Live to recognize a non-traditional control surface... ie a joystick?" Your last post has the phrase "its a usb joystick - One thing I CAN do is confirm that MAX recognizes it". So, what's the problem now? If Max/M4L recognizes it, i...

Re: how to communicate with control surfaces

Have a look at this thread on cycling74 forums:
http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=24021

Or just look at the 'hi' object.

it's usb (and usb is serial).
it's not midi.
I wish it was a T1 :mrgreen:
Have a look at this as well:

Re: Any way to refer to a clip if it's only in Arrangement view?

it could be nice to access clips in arrangement view... it actually does make some sense that it's not possible, given that the session is usually the part you play with, and the arrangement it's mainly supposed to record the played result. Anyway, even if you cannot access clips in arrangement view...

I've often seen the words potentiometers and encoders used in the same context and/or with the same meaning, but I do not have the kind of technical knowledge to argue... sure that julien and some others know it better.

Re: APC6000

I think it's still missing something... As Ben_Binary noted: where are the 4x4 MPC Pads ? :cry: Also. why both touchstrips are horizontal? I'd like at least one vertical! :roll: Oh, and wouldn't you like led feedback near these strips? Same goes for some of the potentiometers... why don't put some o...

Re: Is it possible to peek~ waveforms into the Live Sampler?

In this electronic and machine oriented world, sometimes it's easy to forget about man power. thanks for answering the bitter questions. And thanks to 'the' passionate developer. I'm glad that even with something missing the API made it for the initial release, also because it's the only 'officially...
