accessing devices within the instrument rack

accessing devices within the instrument rack

Is there a way to access devices within an instrument rack?
instrument racks appear to have no children and the only parameters for them appear to be Device On, the macro controls, and the chain selector. How can I access nested devices?

thanks!

I’m sorry I meant “Audio Effect Rack”, not “Instrument Rack”.

best,

Either way, there isn’t a way unless the specific device is currently selected. You can use ‘appointed_device’ to get the device id if it is selected, but otherwise nested devices are inaccessible to the API functionality in m4l.

This is a much requested feature, supposedly it is being worked on for future versions.

Cheers :)

thanks – and am I correct in assuming there is no way to programatically select a device?

MIDI mapping is the only way that I’ve found. You can also do it in conjunction with the Python scripts, but not without modifying them somewhat (this is how I’m going about it).

I’ve been round and round with this LOL.

The only thing you can control with an instrument rack (same as audio effect rack) is on/off, the 8 macro controls and the chain selector.

The only thing available on a drum rack is on/off and the 8 macro controls.

I vote for this feature! It just requires the Device class to have a list of Devices as one of its children. I’d assume that this is no sweat to add to the API, or is there some kind of issue with the recursion that is required to do this?

I have been writing patches for finding Live elements by name, e.g., [get_track_by_name ] and [get_device_by_name ]. If it was possible to just send messages like this to live.path I’d be even happier.

You probably should check out the latest betas :-)

here is a patch that will get all the parameters on a track, including devices inside of racks

Hi Morgan, I’ve not looked at your patch but I’m assuming it’s for use with the new beta?
