Feature request: make "input_routings" more usefull!

December 24, 2010 | 4:01 am

Now; before I go on.. This isn’t exactly my discovery, this whole thing got triggered by a post on the Ableton forum which you can find here.

The Track class has a property called "input_routings" with a ‘get’ access only.

The only problem here is that its output is near to useless (no offense). For example, when I use this on one of my midi tracks in Live all I get:

(quote:)

print: All Ins CASIO USB-MIDI Computer Keyboard Maschine Controller In 3-Maschine No Input

Hardly usable. Its a whole list of individual words which may or may not be related to one other. "All Ins" is actually one entry (so 2 words) yet so is "Maschine Controller In" (3 words).

(/quote).

So I’d really would suggest to either use "" to group these entries or use some kind of delimiter.

For the full story please refer to the URL I mentioned at the top; that’s where the original thread is being hosted.

I use this workaround to check if a specific port is available (example is for output_routings):
