How to detect Beat Repeat activity?

Jan 12 2012 | 11:01 pm

Hi, I’m working on a Max for Live patch and I want to detect the activity of a Beat Repeat effect on a chosen Track. Essentially, I would like to be able to receive a bang each time the beat repeat kicks in on this track. I can access all the parameters of Beat Repeat but I can’t seem to find a way to detect when it fires! Does anybody know how to do that? I’ve looked everywhere.

Im pretty sure that you cant detect when it fires, instead you would have to grab the state of all the knobs, do some maths based against the position of the Ableton live playhead to work out when the bangs are occurring…

Sorry i could not give you an easier suggestion than that, but as far as i know thats all you can do
