    Dear all,
    I would like to know how I can start my Live.grid when Ableton live start?
    I want that when I start ableton (play) the live.grid starts as well and then send midi note.. bla bla. I tried many things .. live.observer, transport... I am lost :-( I tried to find some answers on this forum and the tutorials but I could not find an answer :-(
    Can you help? Thanks!

      Maybe instead, try live.step with a phasor~ (with the attributes,"@frequency 1 0 0 bars.beats.units @lock 1"). It seems like live.grid is meant to work with chucker~, where live.step is a more general purpose sequencer.

      I just made a try and I start understanding how I should change my patch according to your example. So ... I inserted (and adapted) your patch into mine, and it works !!
      even better, thanks to your example, I notice the "counter" module, and I look at the help and I can now change my live.grid START and END steps much easier than before.
      Thanks!
      just for your info; now, the "issue" is that I have 4 Live grid, and each live grid has is own tempo :-) If I use your method, I need to link ONE metro module (metro 4n) to all the different live grid and thus each of theme has the same tempo... so they loose independency... I think it's not a big issue; I am thinking of making a sub patch that contains your "code"/patch" andwill send the right "metro xn" where x is 1/4 1/8... to the right live grid, great!
      again big thank, I keep you inform on my progress. (may be I may need help on subpatches, sending and receiving data from sub patches).. bye :-)
