Certainly it must be possible to generate a midi file with a time signature in it. The midi file created by my patch should open 3/8 instead of the standard 4/4. Is there ways to do such from within max? Or do I have to wait until 22nd...
I'd also like to know of a way to record changing time signature MIDI meta events while recording sequences within Max using seq, detonate, or another approach that can write a standard MIDI sequence file once the data is recorded.
Does anyone know if this capability is available now in an object in Max 5?
Any pointers to more information or help is greatly appreciated.
I have come across an object by John MacCallum at CNMAT called "mxj midifile" that enables playing and recording midi meta events along with other midi data. This is done using the "addMetaEvent" time-stamped message which is followed by the data needed for each type of meta message (see MIDI spec for meta event numbers and necessary data). Mxj midifile reads and writes type 0 (and type 1, I think) standard midi files much like seq and detonate.
John MacCallum's object can be found at the CNMAT download site:
