Timing and Synchronization in Max for Live

Timing and Synchronization in Max for Live

The Live transport is a master clock of the Max tempo-based timing system.

Implementation Notes

  • By default, all transport objects in Live devices (those without names) synchronize to the Live transport.
  • Named transport objects do not synchronize to Live unless you set the clocksource attribute to the name live.
  • If two device instances contain transport objects that share the same name, they will run independently.
  • The tempo-based timing system synchronizes to Live even in preview mode. However, there may be disruptions in the continuity of timing when switching into or out of preview mode.
