Live API: Recording to the current/next clip "Push Style"


    Oct 10 2015 | 10:36 pm
    Hey y'all
    I'm using the Live LOM reference to try and access in Max the functionality of the big red "Record" button on the Ableton Push. Basically this button begins--in the Push's track--a new MIDI clip recording in the next available clip in Live's session view, or will begin overdubbing if a clip is currently playing. I want to access this functionality this with a footcontroler though Max. Any idea of how to achieve this? I don't see any leads in the LOM reference.
    your help, as always, would be deeply appreciated

      Fire Clip is context specific, if there is no clip in the slot and it's track is set to armed then a new clip will be recorded, similarly if overdub is switched on for a currently playing clip...
      Cheers D
