LED Feedback for when track is playing

Submitted by bbedar on Sun, 04/02/2023 - 20:19

I am trying to create a reaction to make an LED on my controller light up when the track has audio playing, and turn off when the audio is not playing. I have tried using

self.song().tracks[0].has_audio_input == True (False for off)

self.song().tracks[0].has_audio_output == True (false for off)

but neither seem to turn the device off when audio stops. I have tried various different listeners to no avail. I can get it to work for specific clip slots, but I want it to apply to all clip slots in a track.

did you ever find a solution?

You can check if a specific clip is playing using the following condition options:
Live Object Model > Clip slot > is playing
Live Object Model > Clip > is playing

Thank you for your response, but that doesn't fix my issue. I'm trying to use LED feedback to show if any clip (or audio) is playing in the track. I have tested the clip slot method and it does work, but I would then have to program it for as many clips as I add to my set, which could be a lot. Can you think of a way to get this to behave the way I am trying? BTW I am using an X-touch mini, if that matters.
