Receiving audio from a particular ableton track

Hi, is it possible to get an audio signal from a single specified audio track in ableton?

I need another way that doesn’t involve the output_meter_level

the plugin~ works but is not track specific

maybe change the track input with your max device on it to the track you want to get audio from?

(this can also be changed manually from your patch)

Sorry, I didn’t outline my problem enough.

I have found a workaround but i had to use two devices.

Basically, I built a ‘Sidechain’ Device where you can switch on/off VSTs when audio is detected or not present……

First I got the Amplitude data using the L.O.M and Live API from Abletons Track Level meter, but it’s got this strange hold/fade thing where once the audio has stopped (instead of shooting straight down) It slowly fades down.

If a live.meter is attached to a plugin~ object it responds correctly to the incoming audio. But it takes arguments & can’t be configured to be track specific, so i had to build a seperate device, with Sends that has to be put in the track that you want to sidechain from.

just wondered if there was a ‘one device’ solution
