I have a USB HID device that needs to be accessed by both Max/Msp and Supercollider at the same time. But when I start Max/MSP, SuperCollider stops getting data from HID. Subsequently, quiting Max/Msp doesn't re-open the HID connection to SuperCollider. I can only get data into SuperCollider after replugging the USB device. Has anyone had the same problem? Are there any solutions?
Also, how exactly does Max/Msp deal with HID? A guess would be that it "grabs" the HID devices somehow, and blocks it, even when it is not accessing the HID devices.
More insight on this would be really appreciated!
