Getting device parameters in Max for live

November 29, 2012 | 10:03 am

I’m new to the world of Max for Live, and I’m trying to solve what is probably a very basic problem: I want to change the synced rate of an arpeggiator from 1/8 to 1/16 with the push of a midi button. The main problem I have so far is that I can’t figure out what message to send to the live.object. I’ve ripped the selector of the included envelope generator, so getting the device id is not a problem. The problem is simply that I can’t find anywhere a list of messages to that particular device. Once I’ve figured this out, the rest should be piece of cake….
Any help appreciated!

Hello,
If you know the id of the synced rate parameter, give that id to an [live.object]. then send set value messages to the object to change the parameter values.
Please take a look at the sample patch below. I hope it helps you.

Hi, Ahmet,

Thanks a lot for the patch. I did figure out how to do it after a bit of tinkering, and, as I thought, it was all pretty simple :-) Thanks!
