L10: create a Red Box w/ a MaxForLive control surface ?

Post by peeddrroo » Fri May 11, 2018 7:59 pm

I'm trying to create a Red Box in session view with a Max For Live Control Surface. Is it possible ?
I want the M4L control surface to have its own box, not use one from another control surface.

thanks for your answer.
is it possible to edit the MaxForLive.pyc file in order to achieve this ?

I would just make a super simple python script that makes a redbox according to the dimensions you want, then just manipulate that in M4L via the control surface API. Here's a script that I made a while back that simply creates an 8x8 box, and nothing else: https://github.com/dataf1ow/Session_Box
