let me prepend this with: i have the latest update of max 5
i am using some midi objects (noteout, ctlin etc) and one of the things you can do is double click on the object to select the midi port you want that specific object to listen to. you can do the same thing by sending the object a message "port [symbol]" whereas the symbol is the name of the port you want that object to listen to.... or so i thought.
this is what the .maxhelp file says and the reference page but its not working. i've sent the message properly and it doesnt change that object's midi path.
anyone else have the same issue???? any ideas for me setting up this patch without having to goto every one of my objects and changing them by hand????
