November 27, 2011 | 3:08 am

I can't figure it out. I want have a lemur or touchOSC LED on/off with ableton's metronome whenever it is playing. I made something but obviously I have it wrong. I took a screenshot for your viewing. Can anybody help me?

To get help with debugging you may post your patch as described here

Also, in your example it should be shown where the send message is received.

one thing.. looks like you connected the ‘dumpout’ output from live.observer to the ‘path’ input of live.object.

I don’t quite get the logic of using a live.observer which then somehow feeds a live.object either.. there’s nothing connected to the ‘list’ output of your trigger object… why is it there?

I’d say either use live.observe, and you’ll get a change everytime the metronome is switched on or off, or use live.object and just query it when you need to know the metronome status.
