No sound from MIDI

September 10, 2013 | 12:34 pm

I can’t get any sound out of M4L, neither using asio4all or external soundcard. I open e.g. the makenote help patch, and no sound comes when I use the keyboard there.

I have the patch opened through a M4L audio effect on a track in Live which produces sound when I play e.g. an external MIDI keyboard. Audio is ON in "options >> audio status" in M4L.

I run Live 9 and M4L 6.1.3 on a windows 7 machine. Any ideas?

M4L operates as part of Ableton, so a device may not work in edit mode.

Try using an instrument device (it already has midi input). Make a wire from the the midiin to the right side of a message box, to confirm it’s getting midi input.

To confirm audio output, make a "cycle~ 220" object and hook it up to the plugout object.
