Re: Possible to run read-only set in free/unauthorized Live?

Oh that's a perfect use case for this, since I would only be using one at a time. Thanks!

Possible to run read-only set in free/unauthorized Live?

I own Live 9 suite, and sometimes want to run a set on another computer but never need to edit it there. So it could be read-only. Is that possible without buying a second Live license? The set uses Max For Live, Looper, and a bunch of standard effects like Reverb, Delay, and Utility.

Thanks!

Smallest comp to run Live on a pedalboard?

This is a bit of a dupe thread but I seem to be failing to ask the right questions. Has anyone every tried to run a Live set as part of a pedalboard when on stage? Like in a super small box with USB for IO that fits on the pedalboard? The delicate clutter of a laptop just doesn't seem right on stage...

Re: Where do you hide your laptop on stage?

I guess I should have used a different word than "hide". I'm more looking for a device like a fold-up magazine holder or dorm thing to "hold" it somehwere so it won't get damaged but it also isn't a central focus of the gear. I have a power supply and USB and audio interface in the pedal board so I'...

Re: Where do you hide your laptop on stage?

I tend to go with under the floorboards, but in the rare case that the boards don't come up easily I'll settle for the classic "inside the air vent" technique. If no air vents are available, consider hiding it in a hollowed-out watermelon. Like, "No worries guys... no computers here. Oh you want so...

Where do you hide your laptop on stage?

My stage set can run with the laptop lid down, so where does everyone else hide or otherwise hold your laptop when using a pedalboard? Seems like a logical place for improvement.

Embedding Live set (including M4L) on a chip

Wouldn't it be totally awesome to stick a live set on your pedal board and have it boot up when you connect the board to power? Have a bank of eight patches to load, etc. I built this really fun looping set and M4L patch that uses the push grid and connects to my foot controller. The set never chang...

is it possible to observe the number of control surfaces?

I am trying to make my push detection patch also detect when Push is connected or disconnected. Right now I can do that by polling every few seconds or so, but it would be nice if there was a way to directly observe a control surface's addition or deletion, or simply observe the number of control su...

Re: Understanding Push's button color codes

I did reference the scripting framework classes, but this topic is for sending color values using M4L via the control surface API (which yes, is defined by Ableton's scripts). Setting a button's color is easy, you just call send_value <row> <col> <color> to the button. The problem is that there is n...

Understanding Push's button color codes

I am trying to get a button to pulse smoothly from bright green to the darkest green, sort of like fading opacity. The problem is that there appears to be no rhyme or reason to the Push color codes, so I can't find a way to do this with math. Does anyone understand how this works? I have tried readi...

Re: How to detect when push is in session mode?

Agreed. It may or may not be possible to tell which note mode Push is in when the note mode button is pressed, but currently there is only one session mode so the following will do it: ----------begin_max5_patcher---------- 807.3oc0W0zbaBCD8r8uBMblvHIDRPu0bueLSO1oiGLH6nDPhADttMS9uWgj IwwEGS73OZuv.qD...

Re: [live.thisdevice] bangs before control_surfaces are created

Hmm, the change note is : The [live.thisdevice] Max for Live object would no longer send a bang message out its first outlet when adding/removing control surface scripts in the Live preferences. The description is a little odd. I don't think the intended behavior of [live.thisdevice] is to send a ba...

[live.thisdevice] bangs before control_surfaces are created

I am finding that the [live.thisdevice] sends a bang before the control surfaces are initialized in the Live application if the max patch is stored in a patch that is loaded immediately when open the Live app. For example when Live is not running, and then you double click on a project file in Finde...

How to detect when push is in session mode?

I am trying to detect when Push is in session mode, and when it is in note mode. Any takers?

I'll use this to only grab the button matrix when in session mode so I can still play my midi instruments.

Thanks!
