M4L "Program Change"

    Nov 10 2011 | 11:47 am
    I'm wondering if anyone is doing anything with immediate preset selection in Live using Max4Love.
    What I personally am looking for is the ability to have a pool of 128 presets which can be loaded on and triggered from any of 16 MIDI channels.

      Note that an M4L device can handle only 1 MIDI channel.
      So if you want 128 presets for each channel you'd need 16 devices.

      @broc, it is true & false.
      Max 4 live itself can handle as many as channel as it wants to.
      Indeed, inside Live (and it is a limitation of Live), one track = one channel.
      With Ralf (from Ableton), we made a very useful & ugly workaround (http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=128795) but the file I provided isn't available anymore.
      Btw, write me if you want another one. I'll design it for you.
      But the principle is quite easy with send/receive stuff.
      send/receive between patches (= between devices) is possible but be careful about sending too much data.
