My main focus at the moment is to control LIVE with custom made interfaces (using TouchOSC).
I have a number of controllers coming in (some OSC, some midi): I want to route and process all the incoming control signals, and use the M4L api to control LIVE
But.. I can't seem to get to work unless the patch is actually a device in Live. It may be obvious (I'm a newbie) that Live can only be controlled through a M4L device - but it seems weird to have to make a track in live for remote controlling the entire application.
Is there a way of using M4L API to control LIVE without having a device on a track?
