If you have some other way that you want to identify the relationship between memory points and MIDI events, you’ll need to be able to express it precisely enough to translate to code. But it should be possible.
And an even easier answer, frankly, would be to create a Show in Beat Link Trigger, import the track(s) that you want to have events happen at the memory points, and then just find those memory points in the track waveform, and add a Beat Link Trigger cue which sends the MIDI event you want at the same point in the track.

How do I get the OBS Overlay to start on app start?
James Elliott
@brunchboy
Hello, @eric. I don’t know if there is currently a practical way to do that. I’ll have to look at the source to see what the UI does, and whether that’s something that would be concise and reliable to put in your Came Online Expression. What’s the use case where you need this to happen automatically? You could try poking around in the source code yourself if you’re game, and if you see an easy way to do it, a pull request to the source or the user guide would be welcome. Otherwise I’ll try to remember to look when I have some time, but the next few weeks are going to be busy, as we are in the process of buying a new home, then moving, then listing our current one.
James Elliott
@brunchboy
I took a quick look, and there is no clean way for you to do this as things stand. It would not require too much new code in the overlay namespace to enable it though. I can take a crack at that. It sounds like you are doing lots of interesting things with BLT now, could you share a link to one of your streams or a description of what you’ve accomplished? Also, would you mind joining us over on the Deep Symmetry Zulip instance? That is where the community discussions have moved, it is a much better platform.
Eric Lindvall
@eric
sure, I'll head over there
right now I'm actually just trying to use the OBS overlay to create a private page I can go to to see what the DJ is playing
not actually trying to use it as an OBS overlay
oh, and regarding controlling Hue bulbs that I talked about months ago, I found this really great project that acts as a DMX to Hue Entertainment bridge: https://github.com/daniel1111/HueLibEnt

Ah, interesting use case! And thanks for the link.

Hi, is this space here still active? The link above to the Deep Symmetry Zulip instance seems to be expired.
I'll try my luck here: I am running Beat Link Trigger and I am trying to control master tempo in Ableton with Carabiner and passive sync. Everything looks great in the app - I can even see my CDJs getting picked up and everything. However, Ableton doesn't do anything when I activate Link. Does Ableton have to run on the same computer as Beat Link Trigger/Carabiner?
James Elliott
@brunchboy
I don’t know what you mean by the link being expired? It worked when I just tried it. Zulip is definitely where discussion has moved.
(but hello!)
Ableton definitely does not have to run on the same computer, Ableton Link works across the network. You should be able to do what you are trying.
There may be firewalls or other network issues getting in the way. Can you share a screen shot of how you have the Carabiner Connection window configured when you are trying this?
(But please try again to move to Zulip so that the rest of the community can help, and benefit from the discussion.)
And here is the raw Zulip link copied from the user guide: https://deep-symmetry.zulipchat.com/join/lp5i6yolkay7erzjzodx365q/

Sadly there isn’t yet a way to link to the discussions anonymously, which is why I share a signup link. Zulip has an open issue for that.

@KewkD_twitter
@Stoessi_twitter Not at home so I can't test anything out atm but I have linked Ableton and controlled it with my CDJ's. I believe you have to have everything on the same machine, I did.
James Elliott
@brunchboy
Link is a network technology, Ableton does not need to be on the same machine as BLT, it just needs to be on the same local network. https://www.ableton.com/en/link/
Thomas Stoesser
@Stoessi_twitter
Thank you, @brunchboy and @KewkD_twitter! I'll dig a little further. Also managed to get on Zulipchat and will check out the discussions there as well.
James Elliott
@brunchboy
Great! See you there, where I look forward to hearing how the digging goes.

Hi, I want to activate the Start / Stop function in Carabiner connection in passive or full sync mode.
I read in the manual of Beat Link trigger this:

"If you are using Passive or Full Sync Mode, and would still like a trigger to control the Ableton Link transport (playing / stopped) state, you can do it by calling functions in your trigger expressions. carabiner / start-transport) to start it playing, and (beat-link-trigger.carabiner / stop-transport) to stop it.
You do need to make sure Carabiner is connected before calling either of these functions, though. This will do the trick:
(when (beat-link-trigger.carabiner / active?)
;; Your code here
)
If you want to only start or stop the transport when the Sync checkbox in the Ableton Link section is checked, substitute sync-enabled? for active? in the when clause above. "

It doesn't work ... He tells me the syntax is wrong.
What exactly should I write down in Came Online expression?
What is the right structure?
Is this good in Came Online expression?
Regards,
Pascal.

Prokuniev
@Prokuniev_twitter
here is what I noted in Came Online expression: (when (beat-link-trigger.carabiner / active?)
(beat-link-trigger.carabiner / start-transport)
(beat-link-trigger.carabiner / stop-transport)
)

Hello, Pascal! Sorry about the delay in responding; Gitter is not used any more. You can find the Beat Link Trigger Zulip link above, could you ask your questions there? At a quick glance, though, it looks like you have spaces inside your function names, and that can’t work. (It would also help if you format code snippets as code when you post them on Zulip so they get formatted correctly). But what I am trying to say is that (beat-link-trigger.carabiner / start-transport) is completely different from (beat-link-trigger/start-transport).

Hi, i've installed beat-link-trigger but unfortunatelly it doesn't show the remaning time. Is it possible because of my cdj2000 are not nexus?
James Elliott
@brunchboy
As noted above, the Beat Link Trigger community has moved to: https://deep-symmetry.zulipchat.com/join/lp5i6yolkay7erzjzodx365q/ so that is where you will most people who can answer questions. But yes, as is explained in the compatibility section on the project home page, pre-nexus players do not send the information needed to enable most of the features of Beat Link Trigger, so it can offer very little information or synchronization.

Hi there! I also tried to follow the zulipchat link and I also got a note that the link had expired.
"Whoops. The confirmation link has expired or been deactivated."
"Please contact your organisation administrator for a new link."
However, that was when i used the "sign in with GitHub" option. If i just register with my email address, it works. so @djkad perhaps that is the answer for you too.
Marcello
@djkad
Thanks a lot, i try to log with another method
James Elliott
@brunchboy
That’s strange! Soon they will enable a feature where I can make the streams public without login, like Gitter allowed, and that will be simpler. Until then I will try creating a new link.
James Elliott
@brunchboy
I can’t quite yet activate it, it is still in beta: https://deep-symmetry.zulipchat.com/help/web-public-streams
Also strange, I don’t see anything about the invitation being expired. I think I will just leave it alone until I can turn on public streams, and then post a link to one of those instead of an invitation as soon as it comes out of beta.
The big advantage will be the ability to share links to discussions answering specific questions in the help, like I used to.

Hi guys...I'm playing around with the software...would it be possible to do the following: Beatlink trigger detects a song an wether it is on deck 1 or 2....and depending on deck 1 or 2 sends the SAME note message, but on different MIDI channels. For example Micheal Jackson - Thriller, start of the verse would trigger VERSE trigger, play midi note C1 on channel 1 when loaded on deck 1 BUT play midi note c1 on channel 2 when loaded on deck 2
James Elliott
@brunchboy
The Beat Link Trigger community has moved to: https://deep-symmetry.zulipchat.com/join/lp5i6yolkay7erzjzodx365q/
So please direct any follow-up questions there. That said, I do believe that you will be able to achieve that by writing a little Clojure code in your verse trigger. Check the documentation to be sure, but I think the player number is one of the values that is available to that code, so you could use that to construct the proper MIDI message (there are plenty of integration examples in the user guide showing how to send MIDI messages from code).

It’s not quite that simple, please scroll up and see Ben XO’s comment on January 17. Hopefully you can get in the same way. I am very impatient for them to release public streams, I never wanted to have to use invitation links in the first place.
James Elliott
@brunchboy
Hmm, @Itchy-Fingaz, can you try this link instead? Please let me know if it works and I will update the links in the documentation and applications. https://deep-symmetry.zulipchat.com/

@alstergee
so im about to be forced to update the CDJ3000s to the latest firmware, is this going to break BLT?
James Elliott
@brunchboy
Hello @alstergee! The BLT community has moved to https://deep-symmetry.zulipchat.com/register/ so you are more likely to find an answer there. For my part, I don’t have any CDJ 3000s to test with, so I have no idea, but I don’t have any reason to believe that firmware changes would cause issues. It will take someone trying it to know for sure, and hopefully if there are problems they will be able to capture network traffic and help fix them.

I’ve finally been able to enable web-public streams on Zulip, so now people can see the conversation there before signing up for an account to chat themselves. The URL for the Beat Link Trigger stream is https://deep-symmetry.zulipchat.com/#narrow/stream/275322-beat-link-trigger

In fact, there is someone there right now trying to figure out how to use afterglow, and your experiences and ideas may be immediately helpful.
