Problem with live.observer when exporting set.


    May 28 2015 | 9:02 am
    Hi all, I recently built a Max For Live device that relies on live.observer and the "is_playing" property of live_set to activate (i.e. when I press stop on Live transport, the device stops playing), and I found this tricky problem, which I am currently trying to work around:
    It seems like when I Export the track ("file>>Export Audio/Video"), [live.observer] doesn't report the "is_playing" property and so my device doesn't start. I put up a quick and dirty workaround, that simply overrides the observer and manually activates the device (I'm attaching an example), but obviously I'd like to know if there's any method to do this automatically.

      Try replacing the observer patch with [plugsync~]. It sends the transport state {0/1) on the left outlet and should work also with non real-time operations like export.

      Yes, that works! thank you, Broc
