I've been stuck with an issue for a while, neither the web nor the support gave a definite answer (yet): I need a "remote control" for AbletonLIVE that enables me to (1) start/stop playback and (2) retrieve information about the song (such as current position or measure) and ideally set some callback functions.
My ideal scenario would look like that:
- An instance of LIVE is running with a song loaded
- I start an external script (Python or Matlab or anything else), I import a "Live" module which links to the LIVE program and allows me to interact with LIVE on-the-fly
Afai have seen, the Live Python API and the 3rd party extensions have this functionality but they rely on python scripts being run from *within* LIVE.
Do you guys have an idea if this can be realized in a reasonable time - or does it need many weeks of hacking ?
