In a project I want to send midinotes/messages to ableton live with pbinds. I want to use proxyspace just because it is more dynamic to work with in an live coding situation.
~test = Pbind(
this works correctly and you can use play and stop to start and stop the pbind.
~low = Pbind(
But in this situation the Pbind starts automatically and stop doesn’t work. Why is this?
Is it because proxyspace is a server thingy?
ProxySpace converts everything you out into it into a
NodeProxy - the
play are referring to the
NodeProxy, and effectively just mute or unmute playback (but don’t actually stop playback). Basically: ProxySpace is meant for audio signals above all, so it’s especially wierd to stick a MIDI pattern into it (though strictly speaking it works). You can get the same behavior and it should work fine WITHOUT a ProxySpace - the only thing a ProxySpace gets you is an implicit conversion to someyhing that isn’t useful - try the same code without pushing a ProxySpace and I think it should work just fine?
Also, I think @dkmayer’s quark has some ProxySpace-like functions for patterns that may be useful for more sophisticated things? But I’ll let him field that one, I don’t know it well enough
Thanks. Very useful. I’m will definitely look into Daniel Mayer’s Quark
