kslider to Reaktor inside an Audio FX rack???

    Apr 27 2010 | 4:05 am
    I have an Ableton FXrack sitting on a return channel. Inside the rack I have "the Finger" (reaktor plug), and this M4L patch (below). I am wanting to use some of my APC40's matrix buttons to activate the Finger. I have some toggles that I can midi map some APC40 matrix buttons too. Those toggles goto a kslider. However I cant seem to get the "kslider>makenote>noteout" to send the data to the Finger?
    Can anyone offer some guidance?

      Since your device is used as an audio effect it can't have midi output. I think that's a general limitation of M4L.

      @broc - are you you saying I should take the patch out of the rack and put it in a midi effects rack, and route that channels midi to the AudioFX rack holding the finger? I had tried this, and for some reason the "Midi to" menu becomes an "Audio to" menu once I drop the new rack in it.
      Should I try a Max Instrument or Max Midi Effect?

      Basically, if you want a device with Midi output, it must be a Max Midi Effect.
      To make a proper Max Midi Effect you need to use a corresponding template and build or paste your patch into it. Otherwise Live will not recognize the device as Midi Effect. That's probably the reason why in your case the "Midi to" menu became an "Audio to".

      I can get the keyslider to activate or change the note going to the finger, but it seems as if it's acting like I just briefly touched the key. It does not hold a note or something???

      This happens because your kslider triggers 'makenote 80 100'. So you're generating notes with duration of 100 milliseconds.
      For holding notes you may use 'polyphonic mode' of the kslider.
