that is the question.
are the audio attributes of MAX hardwired into it?
I am noticing a lot of MIDI looping programs cropping up being made in MAX, and they all have Microsoft synths and mme, dm, etc drivers.
if you try to remove these audio related drivers from the programs they fail to launch.
my real wonder is if it is possible to build a MIDI looper using MAX with NO audio support or drivers running whatsoever (obviously if you have external hardware modules you don't need a computer to make sounds from MIDI data.)
I am also trying to accomplish this in USINE using Pascal but am finding most of these compiling/routing programs seem to hardwire some sort of PLAY and/or timeline function involving an audio engine.
I did do a search, and even asked some of the programmers making these MIDI loopers before posting here, but no one seems to know the answer...
