Hi - I'm loving the possibilities with ClyphX and have found lots of useful info on forums and the manual. But I'm struggling to find a solution to the following, and whether it's indeed possible or not.
SNAP is great, but I'm trying to find a smooth way of updating the saved SNAP preset as a patch changes further down the line, that will avoid renaming the clip name to the original code and re-running it.
Is there any method that I can have on separate clip that "updates" the settings stored in a snap? Or can Snaps be run from Macros or from trigger pads plugin (If so I can't get it to work copying the same info, does the prefix differ (ie - not using the ? )
I also read a forum post where someone described an X-Control command that may do it, but I'm trying to avoid having an external controller for this if possible. Can X Control's be run internally or from a drum trigger plugin?
Their suggestion was: AddClip Sel; ClipSel Name  All/Snap; Play Sel
but I haven't managed to make it work yet.
Finally -  SNAPSHOW is very useful. It seems to show any snapshot name ever created, regardless of whether these have subsequently been deleted. Is there a place these are stored so I can delete old ones that are no longer needed? Or a command that only shows active ones?
Welcome to the forum. If you have M4L, using the device included with the Triggering Actions via Notes in a Clip Live lesson would likely be best suited for this. With that, you could have a pad that would simply be used to store /update a snap of a given name (like [My Snap] ALL/SNAP). Then, you could have an X-Clip that simply recalled that snap.
As far as the point about SNAPSHOW, are you using SNAPDEL to delete your snaps? If not, they would still be shown as they still exist.
Hi Stray - that's amazing thanks, exactly what I needed! And I shall use SNAPDEL to tidy things up. Are there any
Are snap (recall and capture) able to be used in Macros at all (if they can I haven't been able to make it work or find any references talking about that so any direction appreciated)? And is there a way that the name of the SNAP can be a reference to a different text/clip name etc so I can rename one place and then the SNAPS take their name from there?
On the first question, yes, but that wouldn't be very useful in this case. There is a use case for it explained in the Addendum section of the manual related to X-Controls and X-OSCs however.
On the second question, I'm not sure what you mean on that. Can you give me some more info on what exactly you're trying to do (as opposed to how you're trying to do it) so that I can suggest a way of accomplishing it?
