Device Overview

Name/Version: Polymetric Note Lanes 1.1
Author: dennisdesantis  
Description: Allows each note lane of a MIDI clip to be assigned its own loop length.

The device then:
- sets the clip's length to either the least common multiple of all lanes or a user-defined maximum length (whichever is shorter)
- duplicates each lane to fill the clip

Optionally, each lane can also be extracted to a separate clip.

- much faster when processing fractional values
- shows the calculated least common multiple, as well as a light to indicate whether it or the user-defined maximum is currently applied

Known issues:

- When there are enough note lanes to enable a scroll bar, scrolling sometimes causes the length calculations to update.
- The device can create very long clips with many notes. This may slow performance. Performance becomes increasingly slower as the number of note lanes increases. (The maximum possible length of the total clip is 30000 steps.)
- The device may behave unexpectedly when using Adaptive Grid settings. The lengths shown in the grid are always based on the most-recently-selected Fixed Grid option.
- The device will freeze if the least common multiple of all lanes is larger than 1.7976931348623157e+308 steps. (Note that this is an extremely large number and you will probably not reach it under normal use.)

Thanks Dennis.

(The amount of spam here on Max for Live is getting out of hand lately, and there is no decent way to report, only via an 1998-style "mailto" link to report from an email client WTF.)

Dennis, am I misremembering, or did you do APC40 work at the Berlin office in that little studio WAY back in the day?

Still cookin'. So good.

Thanks Dennis! Couldn't agree more with Cool. SPAM = not cool. Reposting same device 3x, 4x, 20x times = not cool. Advertising sample packs on a m4l site = not cool. There has to be some way to moderate it before it goes down the toilet.
