MAX TO LIVE syncing MIDI

December 4, 2013 | 4:16 pm

Hi MAX,

How can I sync MAX to(!!) LIVE. in terms of rewire like functionality to let both machines play in sync.
How can I input MAX MIDI OUT to LIVE MIDI In to record the MIDI notes on a MIDI Track?

Thx
Best

Go into Live and check out the Max midi effects. One of thems called api.observe.global.transport.
Check the picture I attached, and then in Max just add a udprecieve with the same port number, plug this into a toggle going into metro and you’ve got both programs in sync.
For midi to live make sure your midi settings are correct.
In Max (mac use IAC driver bus 1) enable it in the options with midiout or midiparse object, then go into live PREFERENCES MIDI enable midi in with IAC bus driver 1. Now make a midi track select midi input IAC DRIVER 1 and put monitor to in. This should bring the midi into live.
The basic tutorials of Midi from Max already contain all the objects you need to make this work. I’d recommend using midiparse as this deals with large amounts of midi data.

thank you,

I can´t find these MIDI Effects. Is it a special bundle?
Don´t know why, is Max tricky in terms of user handling?

At the moment I install the Max for Live Essentials to see to find them there.

Or:
Do I have to reinstall Live, caring for file structures and such.

Thx very much
Best regards
