TDAbleton - How to get clip metadata?

I arranged a piece of music and I want to create a visualization based on the name of the clip that is currently playing on a given track. Is there any way to get the name, or even color, of the current clip playing on a current track (in arrangement view)?

Unfortunately Ableton Live doesn’t make that data available in arrangement view. Fingers crossed that some day they add that… would be quite powerful.

I had a feeling it might not be possible, thanks for letting me know! I used a not very pretty workaround which involved me making a track for each clip btw.

The next TDAbleton release will have the ability to track arrangement clips

This feature is in the new TDAbleton 2.0. Live 11 only
