Hi Alex
you asked for my granulation patch via youtube; here it is:

save this sub-patch on your HD, then save the second main patch in the same place

sub-patch, save as subPolyGran:

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

save this main patch in the same place:

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –


Don’t forget to search the MaxMSP forum for posts on ‘granulation’, ‘time-stretch’ etc; there a people here who have built equally good and better granulators than mine

I think you should dive a bit more into the API and what the abstractions you use actually do.

Look in M4L.api.SelectDevice, there you see already that the ids of all tracks are requested in M4l.api.GetAllTrackIds , you should make your own version of M4L.api.SelectDevice where you replace the M4l.api.GetAllTrackIds with your own abstraction/subpatcher which returns the id of the track you want to list the devices from.
For example using "path this_device canonical_parent" with live.path results in the id for the track you place the device in.
