on a powerbook G4 titanium, running OSX 10.3.9, i am using a BCR2000 controller sending MIDI data into max.. it works fine for a short burst, then no midi data is receieved in max.
i can (sometimes) very temorarily resolve the issue by 'rescaning midi' in Audio MIDI setup or powering of/on the BCR. then midi data stops getting recieved again after a short time.
the same thing effectivly happens if i 'test setup' in 'Audio MIDI setup'.
i have uninstalled alesis firewire audio drivers that i thought might conflict, i have deleted midi prefs + configuration settings etc, i have repaired disk permissions... i cannot get a driver for the BCR because there isnt one.. the firmware is up to date.. i have disabled automatic 'software updates' (which apparently corrupts Audio MIDI setup stuff)..
but no still no joy.
if anyone can help i will be very very happy. this is driving me mad.
