Clipnames into textedit?

July 1, 2010 | 9:21 pm

Is it possible to get the clipname of a clip when played into a textedit object?

eg.

when i press play on a random clip in ableton, the name of that clip would automatically be put in to a textedit?

Is it possible? If so, can someone put me in the right direction?
I’m still learning max from the beginning and i’m not really experienced

I think you would have to observe the "playing_status" of all clips and if it changes get the corresponding name. It’s certainly possible but looks like a bit of administrative work.

Here is one way to do it using selected_track and playing_slot_index:

so it works for a specific audio channel, but is it also possible to put this let’s say on the masterchannel, and that every clip from channels 1-8 would appear in the textedit?
