Can't get midi to Live from Max. Max window in Maxforlive?

Apr 09 2012 | 4:26 pm


I’m moving my gig setup from having worked in Max and Live simultaneously towards doing it all with Live and Maxforlive. I’ve run into a couple of problems though, and am hoping that someone could shed a little light on this situation.

1 – Basically – I can’t get the midi that I have been sending from Max to Live, to work the same when sending midi from my Maxforlive patch to Live. Probably a really easy thing to do, I just can’t see where the problem is. The Maxforlive patch is at the bottom, and under it is my Max patch

2 – In my old setup, I used the Max window to keep track of what midi message I was about to send to Live, by printing from a coll object that corresponded with a coll object that sent different midi messages to Live. I can’t use the Max window inside Live, right? Is there another solution to this that anyone could suggest? Such as a small text window floating over the Live window, where I can print stuff that used to be printed in the Max window?

Attached are also the two .txt files that the coll objects refer to.

Thanks! I would deeply appreciate any input on this…

ad 1. For midi output you don’t need to change the Max patch as it will be routed automatically to Live.

ad 2. There is a Max window available in Live. It can be opened with right-click on the title bar of a device.

Thanks broc,

Found the Max window. Sometimes the solution is just too close to see properly… The midi problem’s still there though, hope to solve it soon.
