Real noob question: a button to generate a note
I want to create a simple device ion Max For Live. It is a button which, when pressed with the mouse, generates a 440Hz midi note which is picked up by an Operator instrument. Simple huh? Well, it’s beaten me so far. Can anyone help me please? I’m not the sharpest chisel in the toolset so any help you provide would be most welcome.
I suggest checking out the midi tutorials in Max – I think that A440 is midi note 69 – essentially, you send that with a velocity (0-127) out to the midi out object.
Thanks Tim. This is exactly my point – I tried this but no sound comes out. Like I said, I’m a real greenhorn here, can somebody help?
you have to send a velocity paired with pitch. Reading the tutorials is definitly a good idea.

I totally agree with RTFM, however …
Unfortunately all the tutorials I’ve seen assume the reader has a certain basic knowledge – hence my attempting to do something (apparently) very simple.
