Is this possible in Max 6?

September 29, 2013 | 10:55 am

Hello everyone,

here’s my question:

I would like to use 2 midi keyboards simultaneously in Max.
I guess this is possible, but…

I’d like to make them handle different parts of a patch (sampler)…the first
keyboard should activate some samples, the other one some others.

Is this possible? Or should I make 2 patches running at the same time?

Thanks to all of you!

If the two keyboards are on different MIDI channels, then you differentiate the data based on MIDI channel.

This isn’t specific to Max 6, you’d use the same technique with virtually any MIDI-based program.

You can assign an abbreviation for each keyboard in the MIDI setup. Then you use that letter as the first argument for notein or ctlin.
