Is there any way to get a midi file to play an audio clip or a generated softsynth in Max 8?

    I want to save some time note sequencing by importing midi files I wrote. I already got the seq > midiparse > noteout system working, but it can only play in the default midi piano sound. is there any way to get the midi sequence to play max-made synth or audio sample?

      Have a look at the help file of [live.step] for midi to a simple synth [p synth]. Have a look at the MIDI Tutorial 3: MIDI Sampler for sample playback.

      Just stumbled upon this video which reminded me of the BEAP modules that also come with Max and that might also be of interest for you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auj4406RPQw
