Help with a M4L patch : clip combos presets


    Mar 15 2014 | 6:50 pm
    Hi, i am currently writing a patch to use in my gigs. The goal is to be able to trigger different combinations of clips plus a selected scene.So the concept is :- play a combination of playing clips plus a selected scene - hit 'capture' - store the combination in a preset
    Each playing clip slot's number is contained in a numbox. What i'd like to do is that, when it's -2, it stops any playing clip in that track, and when it's -1, it just does nothing. Otherwise it triggers the clip index according to the number (THIS PART WORKS)Any help would be great !!

      No idea ? Should i use 1 live.object for each track ? it would be much easier but less elegant.

      Hi, is that what you're looking for?

      Thank you !! i'll have a deeper look tomorrow, but for now, i can tell that blocking -1 with route doesn't work because the pack object retains the former value anyway so it just retrigger the previous clip. i'll come back here if i don't figure it out by myself. sopping clips with -2 seems to work well. Thanks again, louis

      hi. yes, sorry, there's a 't 0' missing from the -1 outlet into the gate to close it...

      I am working on another side of the patch : once i've made presets of clips, i want the next preset to be launched after a given amount of time (basically a song would be a succession of consecutive presets with different lengths). This is my attempt, but not really successful. The idea is when you trigger a preset, it sets a new time in timepoint for each preset. Maybe i am going in the wrong direction ? (PS : pasting patches in text format doesn't work nowadays ?)

      hi. will take a look tomorrow... you should be able to "copy compressed" from MAX and then paste into the editor...

      Hi, so are you looking to have each preset play for a specific number of bars?
