How to save Audio/Midi Setup on Max???


    Feb 08 2006 | 1:10 am
    Hello guys.
    First of all, thank god for this forum!
    Finally!! Thank you cycling'74.
    I'm trying to save my Auido/Midi Setup on Max.
    I'm using my laptop for all the gigs and home-studio works.
    If I run maxmsp without my Audio/Midi interface,
    all the port numbers and status gets messed up.
    I have to switch on/off by selecting the right port number/alphabets for my gig-patch.
    I didn't have any trouble since I hardly go outside except for gigs.
    But since I have a laptop,
    I would like to go outside and play with my sweet-gig-patch. Trying to evolving it with ideas.
    I do not want to carry all my Audio/Midi interfaces and gears.
    I just want to play with the patch.
    Is there any way to do this without setting the Audio/Midi setup everytime I run max without the interfaces ???
    Can't it remember the setup whenever I plug back my interfaces???
    Ableton Live and Apple Logic Pro is good at this.
    They always remember my setup whenever I plug them back in.
    All I could come up with was using the "midiinfo",
    but I don't think that's it.
    Anyone ???
    thx in advance.
    and again,
    thank you cycling'74.

      You should be able to do the same as you do with [midiinfo] with
      [adstatus driver].
      Check for a certain conent in the menu input and you will know which
      menu item is relevant.

      thx stefan.
      But what I am trying to do is that
      I would like to send some information to the "Midi setup" to control them. To cancel out that ever that I don't use in the Max and assign them correct port alphabets.
      If run Max without the midi interfaces connected,
      some how the midi-setup has been reseted and that I have to set it up from the scratch.
      Thx with the audio bit.
      If I plug the Audio interfaces, max will recognize it with the correct setup.
      But this didn't apply with the midi.
      I use motu micro lite with PBG4 1.5Ghz.

      Just forget about the port alphabets, I didn't use them anymore since 10
      Years and never missed them. Logical names are what you want to deal with...

      Have a look at my St.MidiInport and St.MidiOutport, this might get you
      going, find it at c74/share...
