Message triggering issue in a very simple device


    Jul 29 2016 | 8:36 am
    Hi all,
    I'm new to Max for Live (but not to Max) and I've set myself the task of creating tiny plugins to practice. This one here is meant to delete a clip (on the device's track) after it has finished playing. It's working fine when the process is triggered manually or with a metro object, but not when running on its own. I'm attaching the device and would super appreciate any hints.
    Thanks! Tobias
    PS: The plugin is set to work on Track 4 as that's the track in my test Live set. Dynamical track assignment isn't something I've learned yet.

      Hi, you'll need a 'deferlow' after your observer before calling another API function - I would guess you're seeing some red error messages in your Max window...

      Lee, thank you very much, this did the trick. And of course I had error messages - for some reason I keep forgetting that there's (obviously) a console window in Max for Live, too.
