clip position, two better ways to ?

    Thanks to gavspav and Andrew on ableton forum I made a small path to explore 2 ways to get easily a clip position. I made it with live 8.1b1, I am not sure it wil work with 8.1

      I've taken the version and totally stolen it for my next patch...
      It just works! No glitches... It's perfect!
      Thank you!
      Cheers D

      be aware that could use more cpu than you expect. That's why I show another way.
      glad you use it anyway :-)

      Do you think uses more cpu per se or is it totally dependent on the refresh rate?
      Also the get length value means something different depending on whether looping is on/off. And whether warping is on/off.
      Havent had time to try this but maybe it'd be possible to get the initial playing position, then update/calculate using tempo but check the position (at a low polling rate) and see if anything has changed eg scrubbing/looping/follow action etc. Plus checking for tempo changes of course.
      You think this would work? It might give better resolution feedback with less api calls?
      OT Do we really need 3 (>3?) forums for M4L?
