Been working on this clock for a bit with help from others (Broc has been super helpful so far!), I feel like I'm making baby steps to having it done. It's basically a clock that saves how long you've been working on a project in Ableton as you work. Problems encountered were that having the clock just simply tick into a live.numbox or any other live.* object would write to the undo history, which wasnt good at all. So there's a coll in it's place now and I've been reading about writeagain and readgain messages going into coll, so my current attempt was to the try have a load bang that would trigger a live.numbox to send its output into an if statement which depending on whether it was 0 or anything other than 0 (if its the first time you dropped it into your session, or if you're opening a new session) would either immediately ask you to name the file and save it somewhere, or it would send a readagain to read what it saved from the session before.
I guess before anything else, can readagain and writeagain work over the closing of a session in live? Or does closing the session basically make them just send normal read and write commands when you re-open the session? If it's the latter, I'll have to think of something else entirely I'm afraid!
