Sending midi note information on more than one channel to Ableton Live

    Jan 26 2011 | 6:02 pm
    I am just learning how to send note messages to Live from Max. I have had a look here on the forums and can't seem to find the answer so perhaps someone can help me?
    I have the note information successfully going into Live and playing however I seem to only be able to play one track at a time. The only way I can actually hear the sounds on Live is to have the record ready button lit on the relevant channel on Live. The midi is being sent to both channels I as want it to be but because the record ready is only allowed for one channel I am only able to hear one at a time.
    I am not sure what to do.
    It does seem odd that the record ready button needs to be lit to hear the sound but it is what is happening.
    Any ideas on how to hear the sound without the record ready needing to be on? Has anyone else come across this problem and ideas on what to do please?
    Thanks! Kris

      You don't need the record button for this. Just activate Monitor 'In'.
