Noteout and notein (or midiout and midin) question

Why can’t I generate midi messages with noteout and then capture them with notein? Same with midiout and midin. The reason why I ask is because I’m trying to create a virtual midi controller (using the generic qwerty keyboard) that outputs to a kslider. But beyond that, I can’t even create any noticeable feedback from anything except makenote, which I can’t use because the duration is not set. Please help :)

PS. I included a maxpat file which demonstrates essentially what I’m trying to do. I took those bits from the midiin and midiout help patchers, yet they do not work in tandem… Nothing ever prints!

Keep in mind that you need a connection between the midiout port and midiin port. This can be done with virtual midi cables (eg. IAC bus on Mac) or loopback with physical cables.

because your operating system wouldnt allow this / because it would create a midi loop / because you dont need that.
