Live Remote CLip Trigger and MIDI thru Simultaneously ?

September 5, 2012 | 6:57 pm

Hi All,

Im trying to figure out something in LIVE and have M4L installed as well, but can’t seem to figure out how to do it.

I want to have a midi note coming in from an external MIDI keyboard trigger both a midi clip and an effect parameter on the Master out. The MIDI clip to be triggered sends out to Network MIDI, the Audio Effect on the Master Output responds to MIDI notes for one of its parameters.

I can setup the the remote for the MIDI clip easily enough, and I can use a record-enabled MIDI track to send its output to the effect on the Master out. Now how do I get the same note coming in to do both?

It appears that LIVE intercepts the note if it is assigned for remote clip firing.

Is there a simple way to route the incoming note to both trigger a clip AND pass thru to the effect on the master out? Seems like simple routing problem, but I can’t get my head around how to do it.

Thanks for any ideas!

I don’t htink you need M4L to do this at all. You can simply map the midi note to both the clip and the parameter through live’s midi mapping if that parmeter is a simple on/off thing. But If you need to scale the midi pitch to another value, I think you’d need a M4L device to send that value to the master track. This seems to be your case. Maybe through lhmidiout ?

Hi Stephane,

It doesn’t seem possible to map the midi to the master effect and to trigger a clip at the same time.

For this purpose, the audio plugin on the master out responds to MIDI notes for preset selection, and I want to have several MIDI clips on a MIDI track triggered by those same notes. (One master preset triggered for each clip that is triggered)

I can set up the mapping, but when I play a note to trigger a clip, the active track changes to the track with the MIDI clips, so the input channel for the MIDI to route to the master effect is no longer enabled. i.e. The when a note triggers a MIDI clip, the track contatining that clip becomes the active track, and the MIDI no longer goes thru the track which has its output routed to the master effect (did that make sense?)

If there is some method of routing that I’m missing here, it would be awesome to know the solution =)

A turnaround could be to automatically send a message to the api after each midi note is sent to select back the track you send the notes to. (is that clear ?)

That is : the master track, to make it clearer (?)
