IAC bus

October 19, 2006 | 10:41 pm

stupid q:
I am having trouble setting up the IAC Bus to send data from Max/MSP
to Quartz Composer
- how do I get my data from a fader box on the IAC bus?
- I’ve set up the IAC Bus in the OS X Audio MIDI Setup prefs – ie.
it is online
- changed the offset to ’0′ in the MIDI setup in Max
- I tried sending midiin assigned to my MIDI interface to a midiout
assigned to IAC Bus 1
- selected IAC BUs 1 in the MIDI controller panel in QC
nada…
clues? page in the manual?

I’m not sure why you need to use an IAC bus other than the ones that Max creates. Simple example:

Max:
[random 128]-[ctlout 1]
[random 128]-[ctlout 7]
[random 128]-[ctlout 10] (all outputting to "from MaxMSP 1")

QC: [MIDI Controllers (observe controllers 1, 7, and 10 on "from MaxMSP 1"]—[(R,G,B inputs) RGB color]-[(color input) Teapot]

The "from MaxMSP" busses work very well for getting MIDI data into QC.

Tim,
yeah that’s what I thought too…but ‘from MaxMSP 1′ was just not
giving up the love for me — and why I tried the IAC Bus next…
but I did manage to get it working using the IAC Bus after some
fiddling and much head scratching
thanks for the info though!
:)

IAC bus timing is crap. rewire is better if you can get it to work…

I’m having this problem…

I can send midi from MAX to ableton using IAC but it doesn’t seem to work from ableton to MAX.

any ideas???

thanks
