Midi feeback to controller on channel != 1 - strange behaviour
Apr 07 2021 | 7:59 am
Hi Max community,
New to Max, I am trying to build a custom MIDI controller. Working on Max 8.1.10.
I have TouchOSC on an iPad mapped to toggle boxes and sliders (through MIDI). I want the status of the iPad to be updated whenever I change the controls on the screen, so I enabled the TouchOSC output "map" checkbox in the MIDI setup window. It works pretty good, but I encounter the following problem:
When opening the patch and the controls have not been touched at least once first on the iPad, Max sents out data seemingly only on channel 1 to the controller... My controls might very well be on any other channel... Once the controls have been used once, it works as expected. but I don't like the idea of having to enable/disable 50+ toggles and sliders everytime before starting out....
How to solve this? Is this a bug?
