Oh dear, my first post, and I'm already stamping NEWBIE on my forehead...
Hi. I'm trying to build a rather complex setup for my first attempt on MAX in about 10 years. I'm still getting the hang of MSP objects, so apologies in advance for these tragically straightforward questions...
I'm dealing with a VST plugin (instrument) within a MAX environment. (To be specific, I'm using Stylus RMX as an engine to do sample and REX File playback).
My questions are:
A) how the heck do I route MIDI to a VST instrument? I know this should be basic, but I actually can't seem to find the way to make it happen.
B) is there any way to have a MAIN SYNC? So any VST's that need a sync to function can work? (For example, Stylus can automatically have tonnes of cool things that work to the master tempo, but it needs a MASTER tempo). Am I overlooking something obvious?
I'm a smart guy, but I'm still getting back into the groove of this :)
Thanks in advance,
