An old dream: create a M4L device that would chop the playing audio clip in Ableton Live, just like MLR. Best of both worlds.
I think this is something quite common and many have done it. There is the Monome app Live Clip Chopper and some versions of 7up also have this kind of clip control. But as far as I'm concerned (please correct me if I'm wrong), after some research and testing, it seems that the "move_playing_pos" solution is really unreliable and not precise, even when the clips are loaded in the ram.
Maybe with the changes in Live 9 and the newer versions of Max it is now possible. Does anyone know if there is a solution to this problem or another way to achieve a similar result?
