Multiple max4live midi effect instances causing dropped notes

February 8, 2014 | 12:12 pm

Hi max4live folks.

I’m completely new to max and max4live, but after a couple of days of learning I have something resembling a basic arpeggiator that takes in a chord and plays back the notes in an order that you can specify.

The problem I’m having is that if I have more than one instance of my max4live midi effect in my project (for example just 2 midi tracks with my arp on each track and a VSTi synth after the arp on each track) then both arps just start to misbehave, drop notes, stop playing altogether and then start again randomly etc.

As a beginner I feel like there may be some obvious setting I’m missing that might be affecting this and I’d be glad of any help. I’ve pasted the patch below.

Many thanks!

Rob

To avoid interference of devices you need using special names prepending 3 dashes (—).

Thanks so much, I would have gone mad trying to find that detail in the docs!
