How do you access device parameters inside racks using M4L???

November 14, 2011 | 4:51 pm

I know this was a recently added feature, but i can’t find any tutorials anywhere on how to accomplish this task… Can anyone post an example of how to navigate this with the LOM or point me to a patch that uses this so I can swipe it for my own patch?

I also see that it’s possible to create a kind of "midi map mode" using "live.path live_set view selected_parameter" but I’ve put that object into a new Max Audio effect, and tried to print the far right outlet (dumpout), but no matter what parameter I click, I can’t seem to get it to print the path of the selected parameter. If I could figure this out, it would take care of my problem above, but if you could help me out with either task I would really appreciate it! Thanks,
G

something like this.

path live.set tracks 1 devices 1 chains 1 devices 0 parameters 1

the chain part comes after the outmost device number, then it pics back up with the nested device.

ALSO, chains in DrumRacks operate a lil different. For example if you have nothing in a DrumRack and drop an instrumentRack on C1, it will be chain 0, but if add something below that like on C-2, then C-2 will become chain 0 and C1 will become chain 1. So if you fill all of a DrumRack up C1 will actually be something like chain 36. So your path would look something like,

path live.set tracks 1 devices 0 chain 36 devices 1 parameter whatever your trying to access.

You should learn how to use the "LOM Navigator" device. It’s a big help.

Sweet, thanks for the tips on that. The LOM navigator looks like a very helpful device, I’ll definitely check it out.
