Using XBox controller as a MIDI controller

June 3, 2013 | 5:29 pm

Does anybody know of a way you can send MIDI data from a Max 4 Live patch in the same way you would from a normal MIDI controller? I’m currently using my patch to send data through the ‘midiout’ object to an instrument on the same track and that seems to be working fine. What I want to be able to do is record that MIDI data into a clip, so I can edit it later on. Would you do that through the LOM? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I’m currently using my patch as a Max MIDI Effect.

Thank You!

No LOM involved : record the output of the [midiout] in a clip, on the track you use the HID on or another…

I tried that, but the MIDI information isn’t being read by the session clips. The MIDI data seems to just be going straight to the Live Instrument, but nowhere else in Live.

I just found out that I am able to record that midi data onto a separate track. That solves part of the problem, but is there any way to record that MIDI data onto the same track the M4L device is being used on?
