select – all – clips in Live9/Max6.1

I’m delighted to see M4L can now delete and duplicate clips, that saves me a couple of nasty shell script workarounds :-)

the missing one is still ‘select all clips’ – does anyone have any suggestions to do this without shell script?

Why? I hear you ask…. here’s why:
if you midi control the pitch of one audio clip through midi mapping, you (continuously) control the pitch of all audio clips when you have all clips selected. Which is just great effect when hooked up to an expression pedal! I have it working through a script, but would love to be able to get around it.. any ideas of new options with Live9/Max6.1?

Thanks!!

Hi, for all tracks and scenes, you check ‘live_set tracks n clip_slots m has_clip’ to build up a coll of all the clips…?

Hi lee! It’s actually more for having them all selected. As in when you click CTRL/CMD+A within the application, and you see that all the clips are selected because they are highlighted. (and that’s when the trick with the midimapped controller works)

ah, i see…. not sure, but i’d be interested as i’ll need this kind of stuff in the future, but not currently explored it yet….

where here is my ugly workaround:

* first do a “focus_view Arranger”
* then do a “focus_view Session”

this ensures you are ‘in the right window’ and CMD-A does not end up selecting tracks, scenes, devices or so

Then, using a shell script, send CMD-A (CTRL-A if you’re on PC)

The trick is that with the shell script there is no way of knowing when the task is completed, so I add a delay before the next thing happens.

I’d love to get rid of the shell script part!
