ad_rewire Q

Mar 18 2009 | 9:35 am

Hi folks

decided to dwell in the world of ‘rewire’ , seems simple enough
I read DDG’s Tutorial ect. whch makes it seem like a walk in the Park (let me me also thanks Darwin for his great tutorials !!)

Unfortunately , already step one is causing problems ‘dhooo’
select Ad_rewire in DSP window , ok done , when I hit ezdac the DSP audio (speaker icon) goes on , but just one second (no sound) and goes back to default off state.

Logically this to me means , I don’t have Rewire 1.7 installed , but I do , I even reinstalled it to double check.

So !! any help is appreciated !! did I do something wrong while installing rewire ?,

Ps( I am using ableton live 7.1 as host but in demo mode)

thanks guys !

Follow these steps;

In max DSP choose ad_rewire,
Open Live
Choose Menu View, Selecte In/Out,
In each track there is a "Audio From" menu, just choose MaxMSP,
Click Button "In" above,
Go to Max and Turn Ezdac On.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Dragon for your help

Unfortunatly this did not help

At least we already got these options out of the way.

according to Darwin Gross’s tutorial , just the fact of adding ad-rewire driver in the DSP window should open the "gateway" between MAX/MSP to Live (host) , reflected as ‘audio in’ ‘choose’ MAX/MSP in the pop down menu in Live , I however dont even see this option , I do see maxmsp/Runtime , but not MAX/MSP

hello guys.. hello IcedDragon..

the max rewire driver has three componentes:

audio input; (which sometimes doesn’t work – in this situation please use soundflower, hijack, or maxmsp ordinary audio buses – from to)

audio output; (which most of the times works if it doesn’t work make the same thing that I’ve stated before)

midi input/output buses (which are not used to give problems – if they give problems, use iac bus driver in mac, or any other midi bus that you might able to get)

Hi again , thanks again

Yes well soundflower works , no problem and so does IAC ,

I just wonder why the Ad-rewire is so "iffy " in my set up

Are there any errors in the Max window?

What OS? What computer model? What version of Max?

Have you tried reinstalling Rewire? You can find it here:

From Ableton’s ReWire FAQ:

"How long can ReWire be used in the Live demo?

Live will run in ReWire mode for 30 minutes each time it is launched."
