getting an instuments parameter id

April 16, 2012 | 6:32 am

So I’m using live.path to try to get the cutoff frequency for an instance of analog. It’s in slot one of the device chain and on track 6

so far i got

path live_set tracks 5 devices 0

what would I add to get the cutoff frequency’s id?.. do i have to count down from the top of the menu in the automation or is there an easier way

You can get the parameter names to fill an umenu, and then use the index as parameter number.

I’ve been using a Max For Live device I made that ‘shows’ me the id/path of the currently selected parameter (by monitoring the observable ‘selected parameter’ property of the Live API).

I’ve just made the device ‘release worthy’ (i.e. tidied it up) and added the ability to additionally monitor the currently selected track/scene/device. It should be ideal for solving this and similar problems….

The device is called ‘Where Am I’ and can be downloaded for free from my site here:
