How synchronise Transport~ objects with a midiclock from Ableton???

Mar 06 2009 | 2:44 pm

Hi List,

I try to synchronise all my transport~ objects with the live master clock but I don’t know how I can do.

I didn’t see informations in the objects reference and help.

I found a way to synchronise with midiclock but it just send bangs.

Somebody have an idea???

Thanks a lot.

Thanks – this sound interesting, although I’ve had a quick look and can’t find any syntax for the @clocksource attribute in the documentation. The reference mentions internal and ReWire, and instead a menu list in inspector it is a text box.

I’m hoping there are other possible sources such as midi in or phasor even.

We have plans for these other clock sources, but nothing is in place yet. You’ll have to use sync~ or rewire for now.

The next improvement in sync between the apps is most likely to be Live’s transport as a clock source in M4L.

for me Rewire doesn’t work.

How do you synchronise Live and Transport using Rewire??

thanks a lot.

I use a click track sent from Ableton – then you can determine tempo and shift phase to stay in time. Any use?
What are you trying to do with it?

Like Ben said

Check out the clocksource attribute of the transport object.

Send the transport object a message

clocksource rewire
