Send Program Change to FM8 plug..?

I want to make a simple knob that selects the “Program Number” and a button that bangs it, or sets it.

I can build that much, but how do I set up the midi in/out and pgmin/pgmout.

My M4L device will sit as the 1st device, and the FM8 plug is second.

Not sure about how to make FM8 do Program Changes, but the following works fine for me with other plugins:

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

It’s just using a [midiformat] to send the program change number to the [midiout]. If you want to read input, you use [midiparse] from [midiin] to get the number.

Could you please help me to understand what you saying? where do you write the code?
i’m new with max for live…is it possible to have more explaination or maybe have your patch to inspect it…
I’m trying to change my plugs presets via midi for a long long time now…

Copy the text he posted, open max or m4l and choose “new from clipboard” in the file-menu, than you will get his patch.
