ctlin in a M4L Audio Effect

Hi there,
I want to use a ctlin object in a M4L Audio Effect. Seems that doesn’t work….

This guy seems to have some objects to do the work, but the download link is down:


Does anyone know a solution to this problem or maybe has the above mentioned objects?
Thank you very much!

Gonna try them now and hope its gonna work!

I always wondered about the Midisend/receive limitation in M4L. It doesn’t make sense to unallow communication …

If this you could go with [udpsend] / [udpreceive] also I don’t know about timing issues with that .

There’s a newer version here – I must update it here in the toolbox -

Actually its more a Live than M4L issue. Its simply that Live, as the main environment, usually handles the MIDI in/out itself. However; this doesn’t mean that you can’t sent MIDI out of M4L at all; you can use Live’s routing schemes for example and then get M4L to send its share of MIDI data along the way.

This is how I’m currently building a patch which allows me to control a rewired Reason using my APC40 in Live.
