Re: Hotswapping a clip without creating a new track?

Hi - while this sounds like a neat technique, not sure it's applicable to my question.

Anyone have any ideas specifically about how to add clips to a specified clip slot from the browser, to keep live session size lower for sets like mine with (9000!) clips.

Hotswapping a clip without creating a new track?

Hi there! When I'm DJing in live, I have an enormous set of 1000+ clips. This obviously bloats the session size and makes loading take quite a while (20+ seconds). I'd love it if I could use my controller to add saved clips from the browser to existing tracks. As of now, if I double click a saved cl...

Re: remote~ from JS

This was a great help, and glad to hear someone else has put a bunch of thought into this. I've just decided to downsample my signal, as I'm not doing LFO or any other modulation that truly necessitates signal rate. I'm running my logic in an external Python app I wrote, which sends commands over OS...

remote~ from JS

When sending a lot of tempo set api calls, or parameter set calls to Live quickly, sometimes Live updates with a significant lag - it seems like it's getting my messages, then adding them all to a queue that's getting processed when we're back in the UI thread or something. With that observation: 1)...

Asking a favor of someone with Live 9 Beta

I'm hoping there is some new API in Max For Live, but I don't have beta access right now.

Would someone be willing to dump the LOM? Or, to peruse around with something like:

and see if there is anything new?

Re: Linearity of output_meter and value

Poke! If you have a moment, I'll be working on this part of my system this weekend and it'd be of great help. Thanks.

Re: Linearity of output_meter and value

Fantastic. I'm really looking forward to seeing it. But, I'd also really like to understand - what does the value Ableton is sending out for output_meter, between 0-1, actually mean? What units is it in? Is it a linear index into a logarithmic (roughly?) lookup table of the dB range of the meter? Ei...

Re: Max For Live 6 64bit now in Live 9 beta 64bit

Is anything new? Any new API calls available, or is it not kosher for your to leak that here?

Re: Linearity of output_meter and value

Didn't see a reply, so I installed LiveControl to see what they send out for the TouchOSC display. So for now I'm using this: level = (math.pow(10,level)-1.0)/10.0 To match them in converting what output_meter{left,right} sends to an approximation of what Live's meters display. If anyone who has tri...

Linearity of output_meter and value

I have callbacks on: "live_set", "tracks", n (output_meter_left) and "live_set", "tracks", n, "mixer_device", "volume" (value) Both these values are between 0-1. But if I receive them in OSC and draw a tall vertical rectangle, and put a gain setting triangle like the one in Ableton's mixer at a line...

New API in Live 9? Anything new for Javascript?

Like many of you I'm anxious to get my hands on Live 9. However, I'm in this middle of working with some frustrating hacks in my JS interface to M4L for a large system I've built for my DJ set. There are so many things I'd like to see in a true update to Max 4 Live, especially just a stability pass,...

Re: Implementing cues in M4L : needing some help...

Looks like you've done some excellent work so far - I am in the process of implementing a similar idea with a different cue visualization (using a custom OpenGL UI object in Max). Before you are entirely ready to release the patch itself, it would be great to see your source, or to hear specifically...

Re: Setting A/B On A Track

And... figured it out. FYI, you can set crossfade_assign on MixerDevice to do this.

Re: Setting A/B On A Track

Ok, update.

Forget about having written an abstraction - do people think we have the appropriate API to be able to do this in the current M4L version?
