anyone made a nice standalone rewire max application for interacting with Reason

Feb 10 2011 | 9:31 pm


I want to to use Max with ad_rewire driver to manipulate Reason5 sequencer.
I imagine I can make some cool music with this.

Anyone made a cool app for this? Thanks

what in the sequencer? If you want to send midinotes to reason… search the forum there a couple of good patches. if you want reason to be the slave of max msp you won’t need to use rewire, you can just send midi notes or control the knobs via reasons midi implementation chhart.

also if anyone out there knows how w to send midi notes to more than one synths at the same time directly from max msp let me know.

@tsiwt: to play multiple synths via rewire, just specify a bus number and a midi channel. open attached patch, click "openpanel". in reason make a couple synths, click the "advanced midi" button, click on bus A, then from the drop down lists, select a synth for channel 1 and 2. now you can click notes in the patch. reason’s bus A, B, C and D correspond with max rewire bus 1-4 and channels 1-16 are addressable via midi as 144-159 respectively.

driftpatter, when I turn on the ezdac, I get this really high pitched constant note. I doesn’t stop until I turn off the ezdac. Also could you explain to me what openpanel does for rewire?

My specific problem is that I am trying to control the flam amount on redrum (midi impl. # 5) but I cannot manage to do such a thing.
