How to access Kontakt midi instruments library in Max ?

March 8, 2012 | 11:03 pm

Hello,
I’m pretty new to Max Msp and I’m would like to access my Kontakt midi instruments library in max.

For the moment I can only control the default midi library with the pgmout object.

What do I need to do ?

I hope you will help me, thank you !

Look at the [vst~] object, and search the forum for related discussions.

or you just set Kontakt to receive incoming MIDI from Max in Kontakt preferencies and then set Max midiout to Kontakt.
the vst way is more straightforward but if new to this it may require a little more time.
have a look at this patch, it receives info from a makenote, but before it you must append a channel, though not know if you are experienced with that. in case ask

ah, if you don’t use Kontakt as a vst, you can only send MIDI messages to it, but not receive the audio unless you use something like Soundflower (that i don’t suggest because i experienced audio crackles coming from clock drifts) o jack (which i suggest)
