does any one know how to use iControl with max msp?


I’d love to have something with knobs and sliders to control my max msp patches,
I have an mAudio icontrol and was wondering if anyone knows a way to interface it with max?

Have you looked at the hi object ?
Plug your device in, open the, click the menu
message to refresh the list, & if it shows up in the
menu, tweak & observe,

if hi doesn’t work (which is quite often in my experience) have a look at
Junction, an application by steim <> for pretty
extensive usb to midi mapping. costs a bit, but could be worth it

when i try to use hi i get a message:
error: hi: no such object

do you know why this would be, is it an extra install?

shouldn’t be…but if you haven’t got it then go to and
you can get it. just put it in the externals folder like any other external
