Re: M4L, Push, PDK, and other methods.

I think the PDK is a good place to start and study how Push communicates with M4L. But once you get the idea there's a lot of way to do things more efficiently/simpler. If the PDK should be maintain, it should be reworked first, IMHO. After digging for three weeks I am starting to get a handle on t...

Re: Observing session ring on control surface's SessionComponent

Hi, after many many hours and months of trying you've reached my conclusion in a night... Just observe bank buttons and poll for the track and scene offset when they are released... Cheers D Yeah, and man what a paper trail I had to uncover to figure that out! I've read a lot of code in my day, but...

Re: Observing session ring on control surface's SessionComponent

Some (yet inconclusive) digging through the _Framework and Push scripts. I found two functions on the SessionComponent: track_offset() scene_offset() which accurately return the offsets I'm looking for. Unfortunately they aren't observable properties. So looking for something observable....I'm seein...

Observing session ring on control surface's SessionComponent

I am trying to observe changes in the x-y offset of the session ring (the colored box in Live's session view that shows the scope of your control surface's grid). I am able to change the offsets by calling [set_offsets $1 $2] on the control surface's SessionComponent (SpecialSessionComponent in Push...

Re: have coloured border selection follow scenes? max for live?

Yep, as mirrored in the C74 forum, this same code returns [id 0] for [call highlighting_session_component]. Frustrating... After talking to Ableton support, it turns out that the session ring live.object will only appear on the control surface live.object when Push is in session mode. Once queried,...

Re: How I perform Live Looping with FCB1010, Push, Violin, Bass

livereactor, you can do everything you asked for. I use Ableton for looping over a hardware looper so that I can: - Have different loop lengths - Have different signal processing on each Looper - Use Max For Live to customize the whole workflow, for example by customizing Push. - Easily save session...

Any way to change track input / output settings?

I feel like this is not possible from Push but thought I would throw it out there anyway. I very regularly am jamming out on Push and want to add a track for my bass or violin. Adding the track and my pre-made effect rack are easy, but I can't figure out how to change the audio input channel to to o...

Re: How I perform Live Looping with FCB1010, Push, Violin, Bass

Excellent tutorial! I've been playing the the Bit Voltage looper pack for a few weeks and made some tweaks of my own, but this has given me some real food for thought. Thanks very much for posting. I hadn't heard of Bit Voltage before, it looks like they had a lot of the same ideas that I did, incl...

Re: How I perform Live Looping with FCB1010, Push, Violin, Bass

I'm very interested in this. Would be cool if you post a video of your performance as well! I will do soon. I have since added a rather complex Max For Live device to bring the loopers onto the Push's grid which keeps you from having to use the computer at all, as well as some other tricks to load ...

Re: push coloured border follow scene?

I have iterated the components using M4L, M4L.api, LiveAPI in js, and see no SessionComponent, SpecialSessionComponent, or Session_Control for Push. Terribly frustrating. Maybe it's broken in the latest version?

Re: have coloured border selection follow scenes? max for live?

I've got no experience with that, but the solution in the following thread looks promissing: http://cycling74.com/forums/topic/launchpadapc-rectangle/#post-225327 Session_Control is available on Push, but I didn't try to call set_offsets so far...

Re: Clever ways to load a set file on stage?

STOP THE PRESSES I just found an incredible way to manage your setlist from your iOS device using the EventScripts app ( http://www.mousedown.net/mouseware/EventScripts.html ). Then you can just sit there on stage with your guitar and tap a set in your setlist right on your phone! Then switch to an...

Re: Clever ways to load a set file on stage?

ClyphX works very well for me for snapshotting. Man, it's a hell of a lot better than Kapture, especially with it's crossfading ability. But back to the original title of literally loading ableton set files on stage. I am a developer, and might add to this the idea of an Ableton set assistant mobile...
