Binkbeats Max for Live plugin issue

Post by patrickjamesdrift » Tue Mar 12, 2019 4:31 pm

Hey people,

Blinkbeats shared a great Max for Live plugin for live looping a few days ago. There's something however I'm having trouble with and wonding if anybody can help.
The pluging works fine, except from the Quantize function. The quantization automation doesn't seem to trigger quatization button in the plugin. All other automations I draw in work fine, except this one. Quantization only happens if I manually press the button. Can anybody help?

Here's the link to the Ableton article and plugin:

Many thanks,
Patrick

The quantize function is a live.text object basically set up as a button which does not automate like you might think.

Maybe try drawing short automation triggers like in the image below at the points which you need to trigger the quantization?

May have to work out the timing a bit.

Thanks for the reply.
Quatization wouldn't work despite the short automation triggers I'd drawn in. That said, I found a way to get it to work:
I grouped the Bink device and mapped Macro 1 to the Bink 'Quantize' button. Then I made an envelope automation for the 'Quantize' button.
Hope that might help anyone that has the same issue.

Cheers,
Patrick

I’m confused with the trigger option. Maybe I’m using it wrong but I thought it was for triggering the clip in the scene that was selected. If it was blank then it would record a new clip. If there was already a clip in selected scene it should play it... is that correct? Mine will only record but not playback.
