Scripting Clip Launch of Specific Length

Submitted by twistymatic on Tue, 04/20/2021 - 09:20

On the Push, one can hit a button, choose the length of what you want, and it will create a clip, record for that long, and start playing. As far as I can tell, that isn't available on any other hardware. You can't specify how long it will be on the fly on other setups. BinkLooper is a workaround, but a complicated one that requires advance specification of the clip. Is it possible to create this Push functionality with Remotify?

Thanks!

PS - here is a somewhat hastily-searched-for and random discussion of the topic... there are many more online:

here is another I just found where someone extends the functionality of the 'fixed length' button to grab the last part of a longer recording; this is not what I need right now, but I thought it interesting so I'll include it as well:

This is possible with the upcoming update to Reactions (version 2). Its not out yet, but will be very soon.

It is avalaible now but needs 2 versions of a reaction...1 to check if midi and 1 for audio tracks.
Then you just use
view.highlighted_clip_slot.create_clip(n)
to create a midi clip

or

self.song().trigger_session_record(m)
for audio

where n/m is the length in beats of the required clip

hth

Actually John...it would be a great feature would be the ability to be able to export in a granular way where you can choose eg just a reaction to export and share? or even multi select a group of items and export only those

Cheers

I thought this too, exporting individual mappings would be brilliant.
