Stray. Wow. It's like you are opening the code source for those remote scripts. This thing is huge. Having worked a lot with Dummy Clip Midi, this is the thing. THe biggest advantage looks that you don't have to remap your clip at every new project you have !

Question. Could it be possible to have graduel tempo change. Let's say, from 130 to 65 during 4 bars.

THanks

Gradual tempo changes aren’t out of the question. However, there would be a drawback to it or any action that applied repeated changes to a parameter. The drawback is that parameter changes made from scripts like this are considered undoable actions. For that reason, you would not be able to reliably undo while the gradual tempo change was occurring.

That probably isn’t too big of a concern for this particular request since the gradual tempo changes would only occur for short periods of time. I’ll see if I can get this addressed in the next update.

That's strange. browsing on a PC with Google Chrome. Can I just manually delete the .gz part since it's not a compressed file?

After a quick look, it looks like this is a known issue with Chrome. I’ve re-uploaded the example set as a zip file. I think that should circumvent the issue. Let me know if not.

I got a simple solution for this. I can use FOLLOW ACTION -> NEXT and assign a new tempo on the next midi X-CLIP ... redo again and again till the tempo I want ? Case closed !

Thank for looking :)

But again about the tempo. Please give us the script to push tempo UP and DOWN like in the LPC kontrol.

Thanks

Nice find on using multiple X-Clips.

The script does include tempo inc/dec like LPC-Live has. The names are ‘BPM >’ and ‘BPM <’.

awesome! I doubt ableton could have realized just how far its users would take midi remote scripts when they created the framework for hardware manufacturers, but I hope they're taking note and planning to build on it for future version. Its brilliant.

thanks again.

Just wondering, is it possible to delete clips via remote scripts do you think?

^^Good to hear and sorry for the initial difficulty. I’ve never hosted *.alps before so there were some variables involved I wasn’t aware of.

I’m not sure of a way of doing this via the API unfortunately. It might be possible to set up an action that can launch an external script (like an AppleScript or AutoHotKey script) that can do the delete though. I’ll see what I can do on this.

about deleting a clip: I guess a simple UNDO would do it 8)

only direct after recording.. and to assure that on stage where even the vibration might create some permanent conrler action is not very reliable
