Detecting "is_recording" of Clip Slots – Max for Live

Jan 14 2012 | 1:14 am

Hello All,

I’m having a problem with a Max for Live patch I’m working on. I’m trying to detect when a user begins recording a clip and when they stop recording. I’ve included a procedure on how to show the problem I’m having in the patch that I’ve attached.

Debugging procedure:
– load device on any track in Ableton Live
– start recording in the first clip slot (‘clip slot 0’)
– click ‘path this_device" while recording
– watch status box change to indicate recording is taking place
– stop clip – watch status box change to indicate recording has completed
– delete clip
– record new clip – note status box does not change now when recording.
– ..!?

According to the LOM, I should be able to observe this property. I’m not sure where I’m going wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When deleting the clip the previous path calculation (ID assignment) becomes invalid.
So I think for observing a new clip you may need to click ‘path this_device’ again.
