Device Overview

Name/Version: MIDI Note to Clip Slot Trigger 1.0
Author: tomcosm  
Description: A video explanation of how this works can be found here

This device will listen to an MIDI notes played on the track it is placed on, converting them into Clip Slot trigger messages for the track directly to the right.

The first clip slot is triggered by the note C-2, the second by C#-2 and so on and so on.

This was created so you can create preset sequences of clipslots that need to be triggered, great for recording and playing back sequences of dummy clips during a live performance.

A detailed video explanation of how this will be uploaded shortly.

Device File: M4L Tom Cosm - MIDI Note to Clip Slot Trigger 1.0.amxd


like many things in live this is useful in ways not intended. This device provides a solution to a problem I've had for a while: the inability to have arranger style keyboard "drum fills": where the fill starts immediately upon launch then returns to the original loop on beat 1.

setup this device on a midi track then place your drum loop and drum fill loop in slots 1 and 2 of the the adjacent track. place a midi loop on the channel that contains this M4L device and place a quarter note on beats 1 and 3 of the lowest note (note 0, C-2). set the launch setting of the drum fill loop to legato and disable launch quantization. every time you launch the drum fill loop it will play instantaneously (from the correct location) and return to the main loop on 1 JUST LIKE AN ARRANGER KEYBOARD!

As always, well done Tom.

Tom does this still work in Live10 ? I trying this and it doesn't trigger the clips ... although ... setup should be right from my side ? Thx for reply
