Im currently writing a patch that requires the MIDI input from an APC40.
This is a fairly simple excercise in Max, but once the APC40 is set as a control surface in Ableton, Max cant read MIDI from the APC.
Im using basic midiin or xnotein objects with midiparse to read the notes, velocities, etc. This all works fine (even withing M4L) until the APC is set as the control surface - then it acts as a controller but doesnt appear to send any MIDI data anymore.
Is there a way to
a) pass the MIDI through my patch before it hits Live,
b) take the midi into midiin (or similar) while the APC40 is acting as a controller?
Thanks in advance,
