I'm trying to make a patch utilising my Akai APC mini, trying to work things out at the moment. I've come across this reverse engineered link from another topic, it has a simple loop that lights up all the buttons and unlights them.
Now this works totally fine in the standalone max, I can turn on and off all the lights by the patch, however if I run max through ableton first off I get
midi_mme: error 7 opening midi input device APC MINI
midi_mme: error 7 opening output device APC MINI
And I can't select my controller in the midi preferences, which I figure is because ableton has monopolised the midi, so I send it through the max device in ableton instead, and first off when I turn the lights on, it doesn't get all the lights reliably every time. Maybe it's looping too fast, is this a thing?
Secondly the loop turning off the lights doesn't work at all. Now I've had a look and it looks like it's sending the message noteoff with a velocity of 64, where it should be a noteon with a velocity of 0. Obviously it's working properly in the standalone I have no idea why it would be different in ableton?
Can anyone take a look at the patch from the topic I mentioned and give me some ideas how to get this working from within ableton?
