Why doesn't "current_song_time" follow Live quantization?

February 14, 2012 | 4:57 pm

I want to use the "current_song_time" command in MaxForLive to control Arrangement playback position, but I notice it doesn’t adhere to the global quantization value in Live.

Are there any ways to work around this?

Playback isn’t nearly as smooth when jumping from one song position to another when using "current_song_time" without quantizing.

You could try using "cue_points" (so called "locators" in Live).

We think alike. :)
But I’ve just posted another post, asking if it possible to jump directly to, say, locator #1, locator #4, locator #9 etc.
Any idea?
