Device Overview

Name/Version: LiveAPI-Interactive 1.0.1
Author: tylermazaika  
Description: A developer tool for interacting with and querying the Max for Live API within a Live session. Try out sample commands sent to live.object and live.path objects, or learn behavior of on observable properties. LiveAPI-Interactive simplifies debugging of LiveAPI calls by printing your typed commands and their output directly into a console.

LiveAPI-Interactive helps a Max for Live device developer ask and answer questions of "how do I do that?", "is it possible to do X", "why doesn't this API command do what I think it will?". It's a practical complement to the LiveAPI documentation.


More complete overview of usage is available via the [?] button built into the console window as well as at

This will be absolutely indispensable for my development process. I've made good use of the LiveAPI Explorer and similar tools but this really takes things further. Thank you so much for sharing!

Thank you! I'm really glad you find it useful and greatly appreciate the feedback. :)

Updated to Version 1.0.1
- Console display is now a scrollable view.
- Removed some labels to make more space to display 'Type' and 'Name' fields.

I'm very impressed with the construction of the device. Looks pretty!

Thank you, hydrogen!
