receiving a triggered clip's name


    Jun 16 2014 | 3:29 pm
    hi there,
    i'm trying to do something that should be quite simple but i cant figure it out:
    receive a clip's name, as soon as it is triggered (= its playbutton is blinking).
    can you help me out? i'd be gracious!

      Hi Bennnzzz,
      What are you using to load the clip? [buffer~], [sfplay~] ? If you could be a little bit more specific about what you are doing it would be easier to find a solution!
      If you load the audio clip into a [buffer~ sampleName], you can use the [info~ sampleName] to get the name of the loaded audio clip.

      I guess he wants to do that in Live. You should observe the 'is_triggered' property (have a look at the Live Object Model if you haven't done it already).

      thanks stephane and nikolas!
      stephane is absolutely right :) .. and i've actually worked it out. i'm using the "fired_slot_index".
      see attached a solution that does the following:
      > read our a clip's name that is "fired" ("blinking") for only the track the device is played on
      > assure that it all still works if your live-tracks are rearranged / reordered.
      if you have any corrections or suggestions, i'd be gracious!
