turn Live's effects on/off using hi

Dec 10 2009 | 4:10 pm

i want to be able to simply turn one of live’s effects (grain delay etc) on/off using an external controller using the hi.object. Is it possible to do this?

You’ll normally find that if you navigate using the live path to the device you want to control then the 1st parameter (0) will be the device on / off….

thanks s4racen
what kind of message would i need to send to live.path to get it to look at an audio effect?

i’m unfamiliar (as i guess many people are!) with the live.path, live.object etc objects. can anyone give me a introduction or point me somewhere to start learning about how to use them?

lets say for example i have a reverb audio effect device on track 3. how do i go about getting the path id for it?

Check out the Live Object Model Reference, which you can get to from Help->Max For Live.

You can send live.path something like this:

path live_set tracks 2 devices 0

that would produce an id for the first device on the third track.
