Expanded session, mixer and device viewers for Max For Live
I recently started an algorithmic music project using Max for Live when I got the thought that it would be great to have a way to use session view and arrangement view in Live simultaneously. Full disclosure, I once got myself terribly “lost” during a performance since I couldn’t easily view my clips and the arrangement at the same time!
So I set out to duplicate the functionality of the session window as an audio effect so I could use it alongside the arrangement, and then I added a floating window version, and then an alternate view of the mixer, and then added a floating device/effect/instrument editor. They are pretty deep examples on how to exploit the live object model to control Live and get feedback. The integration winds up being fairly seamless.
