How to control the starting point of a clip ?


How to control, with “the Live API”, the starting point of a clip ? (not the starting point of a loop).
(what is in bar 3 in my screen-cature)

Best regards

That’s currently not possible. The best option you have is the ‘move_playing_pos’ function but that only moves the current playing position back and forwards by a given number. But unfortunately that doesn’t work on MIDI clips.

Functions need to be called. Just like you use ‘get’ or ‘set’ to, well, get or set a property. So in this case use ‘call’.
