how to get /sl/#/forceup to work?

Post by ZEF »

Hello all
I'm having a bit of trouble controlling whether an OSC message starts or stops a command.

Using /sl/0/down record followed by /sl/0/up record works pretty much as expected, but only for loops >= 1.00 secs.
If /sl/0/up is sent sooner than 1.00 secs after the down command, nothing happens & the loop keeps on recording

I assume that /sl/0/forceup record is what I want to use in this case, but it doesn't seem to do anything to release the record press.

How should I go about making sure sending /sl/0/forceup record after /sl/0/down record actually makes the recording stop?
Or any other way to making sure an OSC command "releases" a press instantaneously, regardless of how short the delay is between the press and release commands?

I'm sending OSC messages using Max4Live on OS X 10.10.5 over to SooperLooper AU. v1.7.3

Any suggestions and help welcome,
Thank you

You are correct that forceup should be doing what you want. I'll need to look into that to see if I can reproduce it.

As a workaround, yes, if you do an down followed immediately by an up (as it would be if tapping a button or pedal) to start recording, and do the same down-up to finish, it should work fine. Basically, the up is ignored if it comes less than 1 second after the down for that command, which is why that works. Alternatively you could use a single 'hit' to start, and a 'hit' to stop.
