Device Details


Name | Version: Ableton Clock 1.0
Author: RobertSchulz
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: I like to use Live in Full Screen Mode, doesn´t matter if I´m using it on my MacBook Pro or on my Windows 10 PC.

The Problem is, I be always not able to keep the time literally “in eye”. I was just trying to mix or make something from scratch, dive a little more bit into it, but then I realise when I watch back on a clock in the room that several hours were past.

Indeed it´s possible to switch ever and ever again to the main desktop and look there onto the task or menu bar to find out the time.

You can also set up a clock just on your desktop beside your computer, but it is much better to just access the time information directly inside of Live even more when you are at tour or just creating music on a laptop. That is for what this device is created.

The cool thing on this device is that you can show up or detach a floating window of the clock and you´re be able to place this little window onto your screen, and can see it even if the track in which the device is inserted is not selected like it is seen on the screenshot photo above. Important: The floating window stand only than alone on screen, even it´s inserted track isn´t selected, when Live is run in Full Screen Mode!

Note: I´m not a professional programmer and so on issues can occur because I didn’t have the expertise on all doings i want to make.

The device is for free, but any donations are welcome.

Features totally:

- Time Monitor (in 24 hour and 12-hour (a.m./p.m.) mode).
- Date Monitor.
- Pass through audio and midi data (Data isn´t affected).
- Mainly compatible to MIDI tracks, but it can passes through audio as well (when set after an instrument device/plugin).

Note: the result of the device is very depended from your hard- and software settings.

Tested on MacBook Pro under macOS Sierra with Ableton Live, Version 9.7.6.
