newbie question: storing midi channels

I’m using a max patch to route midi around my computer. Is there a way to store midi channels, so I won’t have to re assign each time? Thanks

Look at the parameters you can provide to [notein], [midiin] and [midiout].

For [midiin] you can specify a port (I’m not sure if you are referring to ports or channels – the two are different things) and for the output MIDI functions you can specify a channel as well.

You can use [loadbang] to push the required parameters into the MIDI objects at startup.

Thanks Eddy, your reply steered me in the right direction.

I found a simple solution by using the abbreviations in the midi setup.

Then I just used the letter to assign my midi outs.

“ctlout b 100 1″ where “b” designates the desired channel.

what a time saver!
