Sending polyphonic (chords) through midiout/noteout?!?!

March 9, 2011 | 9:52 pm

Hi

Been searching the forums for ages.
How do you get polyphonic notes (or chords) to go out of Max into another application.

I’m using MIDI Yoke to send midi data to my instruments in Reason 5. All well and good, but I can’t play chords! Only one note at a time is being sent through the ‘midiout’ or ‘noteout’ objects.

Is there any way to get polyphony through them??

Thanks

p.s. if you use edit->copy compressed patches are a more space efficient when posting them here…

MIDI is serial protocol, it will never send chords to anywhere, just single notes.

yeah – sorry about the long code thing there….. forgot how to do it! thanks for reminding me! :-)

Got it to work in the end – up to 12 notes going out to which ever instrument I choose :-)
Could be more notes, but figured I should limit it for ‘safety’…..
