record midi output inside maxmsp without using rewire–> What should I do

January 5, 2008 | 11:47 pm

I have a patch which outputs midi (just the regular stuff) and I want to record this output. I would like to do this inside max/msp because I would like the patch to be standalone, so ppl who for example do’t have reason or so, still can record the midi output.
I just use the regular quicktime instruments, also to keep the patch as ‘compatible’ as possible. The midi output even may be audio output (meaning if it is possible to record , a long I can record the sound that comes out of the patch. What is the easiest way to record the stuff decently within max?

Is there a reason you can’t just use [seq] in the same patch that is
generating the MIDI data?

you are right, i totally overlooked it. My teacher was always talking about using rewire so i started studying that. Well, I only work almost 1 year now, still I am discovering things that are so obvious but I don’t think of.
Anyway, I am recording the midi output now with seq but everytime the file is only 4 kb and in reason 4 measures. Is there something I should ad as an argument or so?

Sounds like you need to look at the tutorials and help files.
