Hello everyone, hope that your all well. I am currently cooking up something using Max/MSP 4.6.2 & Cubase SX 3 with the intention of linking them via rewire. The idea is that I will be triggering various events in Max/MSP with MIDI from Cubase and I hope to use rewire to send these MIDI events. It would then be nice to be able to route Max/MSP's audio back into cubase and out into the real world. For the most part I will not be looking at the cubase SX window and so would also like to be able to control the transport functions from within Max/MSP. I think that this all sound fairly plausable but I have come across a couple of issues that I hope you can help me with:
1) Cubase can only be used as a Rewire mixer application. Can Max/MSP be used as a synthesizer application and would this work with the set up that I am proposing?
2) When I try to initiate rewire in Max/MSP (i.e through the DSP status ad_rewire option) I get an error message when I start the DAC reading "error: ad_rewire: error starting audio. Is ReWire mixer running?". I find this messaage fairly confusing as it launches both with cubase open and with it closed.
Any ideas? Many thanks....:)
