You can set and adjust the in and out points of a slider by midi.
Select the slider you want to adjust the in/out points for.
Press CMD 2 to open up UI inspector
Press the + button, to add a new midi source.
To the right of that, change ‘val’ to ‘min’ or ‘max’.
You can now use a knob or fader to live adjust the min/max.

Hmmm not sure I understand you…
eg Changing just the out point, of a loop, via midi, will change the length of the loop, making it longer or shorter…

Hmmm getting closer I think. You are asking for 2 separate things.

1. Change the loop length.
You can already, change the out point (and length) of a loop, by using a midi knob…
I tried to explain how below, but the crucial bit is changing val to min or max. Max = outpoint of loop
So that is solved - you can adjust the loop length with a midi knob or fader.

“Select the slider you want to adjust the in/out points for.
Press CMD 2 to open up UI inspector
Press the + button, to add a new midi source.
To the right of that, change ‘val’ to ‘min’ or ‘max’.
You can now use a knob or fader to live adjust the min/max.”

2. To move a loop around on the timeline.
I don’t know how to slide a fixed-loop around…
(I feel like it was once possible to press Option + CMD at same time, and move both in + out points at same time, though that doesn’t work now… did I dream this?)

What you can do though - is just tap the ‘set’ buttons (via midi if you want) - to create the in and out points of your loop, and after a while press ‘reset’ for the out point to remove the outpoint, then create a different in/out point as it plays on… not as fluid as sliding a loop around (i’d like that too!), but still gets some loop variations happening…
