Midi CC Messages?

November 24, 2009 | 5:19 pm

I’m struggling to see any midi cc messages in Max For Live. I’ve created a midi effect that I’m basically using as a way to control parts of Live. I can see midi notes (using both midiin and notein) if the track is armed to record, but I don’t receive any cc’s (using midiin or ctlin).

So a) how do I see the cc messages and b) is there a way that this device can be set to always receive midi rather than having to be armed to record all the time?

Thanks

a) you have to connect midiin to a [midiparse] object. Consult the help file for details.

b) you don’t need to activate the record button, but only the Monitor ‘In’ button.

Thanks for your reply. I have already done that, but I don’t get anything other than midi notes coming from the midiin at all anyway so midiparse isn’t doing anything :(

Ah I worked out the reason why it wasn’t working! The controls I was attempting to map had been set for other uses in a userconfiguration.txt file I’d forgotten about!
