I'm really pulling my hair out here - very grateful for any help! I think it's a (somewhat crazy) limitation in Max4Live, but just in case I'm missing something..
Basically I'm trying to use a Max for Live plugin to control a parameter on a vst plugin on another plugin. The only way I can think to do that is to use a midi controller message, but I can't find any way to send MIDI into an audio channel - in the io view, only midi channels appear as possible outlets.
I don't really understand how you select devices with midiout in Max4Live - I wondered if I could use an IAC bus or something and route it back in that way. But it's not immediately evident that would be done.
The other option might be to use API messages, but I'm not sure vst plugins can be controlled using these, and if so I certainly don't know how. Any ideas anyone?
Any help super gratefully received..
